Modular Linear Actuators

Unlimited possible combinations. Customized solutions for a range of drive types and guides.

Nook Modular Linear Actuators are flexible positioning systems made of self-supporting and wear resistant aluminum profiles. Modular linear actuators can be used as a single axis solution or assembled for a multitude of gantry XY and XYZ positioning duties including inspection, pick-and-place, assembly, or dispensing applications. 

Used in processes from simple positioning tasks to highly complex multi-axis systems.
