Linear Motors

Dexter can design, manufacture and deliver custom magnet solutions.

A linear motor could be a great solution to your application when looking for high speed and high accuracy motion within the application. Dexter’s linear motion solutions offer fast response, zero backlash, and superior durability. 

Deciding on the right linear motor based on your application can be a very challenging task. Dexter has extensive experience in the magnetics field and can assist your team with the development of a linear motor to ensure maximum performance. We will help select the right technology and assist in important selection criteria involving force calculations, environmental considerations, and magnetic flux interaction in the overall application. 

Advantages:

  • High Speeds
  • High Precision 
  • Virtually no backlash 
  • Fast Response 
  • Low Maintenance 

Capabilities

We work closely with customers to develop solutions geared towards their requirements. Dexter can make modifications to existing products or design, develop and manufacture custom solutions.

All work is done in our US-based facilities. Manufacturing in-house enables us to offer a high degree of customization on very short lead times. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility keeps production costs down, and we therefore can provide a very competitive price


Markets

Dexter provides linear motors and custom designs for a wide variety of customers and applications including:

• Semiconductors
• Oil and Gas
• Defense
• Medical/Surgical Devices
• Medical/Surgical Implants and IVD testing


Configurations

Linear motors have a number of advantages over ordinary motors. Most obviously, there are no moving parts to go wrong. As the platform rides above the track on a cushion of air, there is no loss of energy to friction or vibration (but because the air-gap is greater in a linear motor, more power is required and the efficiency is lower.
