8" Stroke Mini Linear Actuator

8" Stroke Mini Linear Actuator

Firgelli Automations


The mini linear motor line has been a customer favorite for over six years. All of the mini actuators are run by a 12 volt DC electric motor which provides a long product lifespan with little to no maintenance. All of our mini linear motors come with a 12 month warranty.

The growing interest the average person has taken in actuation has sparked a new trend of dwindling sizes to compliment a wide range of small scale automated applications. Firgelli Automations is the first manufacturer to produce such a unit, and has been on the leading edge of improvements for this market. The Mini linear actuator has uses all the way from the aerospace industry to the at home hobbyist. Produced with high grade aluminum and quality internals, this little unit is capable of smoothly producing 15 lbs (6.8 kg) of force with minimal noise.

Fitment is as easy as using two clevis-type brackets which attach via a heavy duty quick release pin, allowing for simple and efficient assembly and operation. Two wires leave the robust casing and are used to power the unit, reversing this polarity will send the shaft in the opposing direction. A system such as this can be easily controlled with our available wireless systems, timers, or rocker switches.

All of our units are CE and ROHS certified, and come with a 12 month mechanical warranty to keep your units serving you best. Our company values revolve around providing quick and friendly customer service that will follow your experience with our products and staff.
