BEI Kimco’s actuators incorporate special materials to meet these stringent low out-gassing requirements. Key to the VCAs’ specifications that would meet these performance needs while measuring only ½” to 2”in size, BEI Kimco developed Models LA05-05 and LA15-16 actuators that minimize the use of adhesives and inks and incorporate only approved materials. The design uses primarily mechanical assembly methods within a clean manufacturing process, thereby eliminating substances that could cause outgassing and contamination. High energy Neodymium Iron Boron (NeFeB) magnets were incorporated to provide superior operating efficiencies. The resulting VCAs measure 12‒38 mm in diameter and 12‒40 mm in length (at mid-stroke).
BEI Kimco’s low out-gassing VCAs are suitable for a wide variety of demanding OEM environmental conditions such as semiconductor, military, aerospace, microelectronics, test and measurement, and industrial manufacturing applications.
