This platform has the unique ability to hold a hefty load, although with quiet operation. To minimize the humming or chattering of most AC solenoids, we machine the contact surfaces of the laminated frame and plunger to provide an especially smooth and flush contact surface.
Our Super-T Laminates are products developed following years of engineering, research, and manufacturing experience.
This platform is available in various frame sizes with a variety of plunger and coil arrangements; consequently, this platform is ideal for most very high force AC applications.
For further information on the AC Laminate Series, contact our office to speak to a sales representative.

SoftShift solenoids have a unique construction that allows easy transition from snap action to variable positioning. Using the same power, the starting force is three to five times higher than standard solenoids at the fully de-energized position, which is advantageous for starting inertial loads or detent mechanisms and conserving electrical power.
This solenoid offers quiet operation, high power density, and also a variety of sizes. Custom engineered solutions additionally ensure that exact application requirements are met. With a life of 10 million cycles, the Soft Shift® platform is especially ideal for applications requiring closed-loop velocity and position control.

Substantially faster than other solenoids, the Ultimag platform can operate in an on/off mode or proportionally, in both open and closed-loop systems.
Ultimag® actuators also offer a 45° stroke; however, the design can have a maximum stroke of 160°. For shorter strokes, you can of course use electronic or mechanical stops.
The Ultimag® Series was developed in response to application needs for higher speed and higher torque motion control components. This technology is also ideal for applications requiring high speed and high torque motion control.

When the coil is energized, the armature assembly is pulled towards the stator and rotated through an arc determined by the coining of the raceways.
Our 3 Ball Race rotaries are capable of withstanding a high G load shock without worrying about accidental actuation thanks to the uniquely designed helical raceways and tri-ball bearing setup.
Our standard design is capable of -55°C to +80°C ambient temperatures and the high-temperature design is capable of up to 200°C.
These extremely high-speed actuation devices provide very long-life operations for the most challenging applications.

With a single-phase coil, stator bases, and a matching rotor pole, the design allows for a stroke of up to 45 degrees.
Since BTA technology does not require full stroke actuation, this product provides a much quieter operation due to the soft, shock-free cycling, eliminating the noise associated with end-of-stroke mechanical stops. With proper controls and application damping, it is possible to achieve exceptionally low dB levels.
The BTA product family is ideal for high-speed, high throughput diverting and sorting applications that require low noise and zero downtime for maintenance.
With the BTA series running at extremely high speeds, it works best in applications that require millisecond actuation speeds.
For more information on the BTA line family, contact our office to speak to a sales representative.

Open frame solenoids are the most economical of all the solenoid types and are typically selected for applications in which extremely long life and precise positioning are not critical.
This platform consists of an open iron frame, an over-molded or taped coil, and a movable plunger in the center of the coil.
These types of solenoids are available in either alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) versions.Read More
