Torrance, CA – June 19, 2023

Oriental Motor USA is pleased to announce the release of the new LJ Linear Heads for the Rack and Pinion system. The LJ Series is a new linear head with a maximum transportation weight of 200 kg. By attaching it to the parallel shaft gearhead and motor, linear motion such as pushing, pulling, lifting, and lowering, is possible. Perfect for high load and long stroke applications.

  • 200 kg maximum transportable mass
  • 700 mm maximum stroke length
  • Compared to a self-built rack and pinion mechanism, the number of parts is reduced, and the amount of labor for design and assembly can be reduced
