Application examples for Linear actuator Mini

The “Mini” series of linear actuators are based on the economic minimum principle: Use of powerful hollow-shaft motors delivers the required lifting force with a design type that is very short relative to the stroke length. This makes the Mini drives particularly well suited for use where space is limited.

An extensive selection of options permits individualized adaptation to a variety of applications, such as test benches in the automobile industry, printing machines, the food industry, and façade engineering.

In addition to the standard options, custom adaptations that further expand the range of applications are available.

Standard drives are not always suitable for the particular application at hand. For example, there may be a lack of space or specifications like speed, torque, lifting speed, or lifting force may not be appropriate. Despite this, manufacturers do not need to reinvent the wheel for each individual drive solution.

Thanks to the modular design of the Mini linear actuators, in many cases existing modules can be combined with components that have been reconfigured for the specific task. This saves time as well as development costs.

Benefit from our decades of experience in drive engineering to get a custom drive that is designed and configured for your needs. We are able to ensure the integration of the drive into your entire system and thus ensure a smooth market launch, thanks to the selection of suitable options.

Numerous innovative drive systems based on the functional principle of our Mini linear drives have already been created in this way. You can find some examples here.

Automotive industry


Mini-01_oR_130_70A truck’s driver’s cab (including engine and chassis) is aligned during assembly with the help of two Mini drives.

Packaging technology


Mini drives are used on blister packing machines to adjust the feed and unwinding of the forming film.

Crane construction


A Mini drive in a construction crane releases the brakes for the wind-release system. Cranes must be able to turn like a weathervane in strong winds to prevent air resistance becoming too high and the subsequent risk that the crane might tip over.
