Linear Motors

Linear Motor MagneticsDexter can design, manufacture and deliver custom magnet solutions.

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. 

Precision linear motors have a wide range of applications. Dexter Magnetics works with customers on important selection criteria involving force calculations, environmental considerations, and magnetic flux interaction to create medical linear motors, semiconductor linear motors, defense linear motors, and surgical devices linear motors.

A linear induction motor utilizes magnetics to create linear motion and force without physical contact or rotational torque. A combination of optimized magnetic designs, a self-contained magnetic field, and carefully selected magnet surface finishes minimize corrosion to increase the product lifespan while providing the maximum field strength, force, and torque.

There are three different configurations of linear motors: U-channel, flat-type, and cylindrical (tubular). Our team of engineering experts works with your organization to develop a linear motor that ensures maximum performance at the best price for your specific needs. Dexter Magnetic Technologies utilizes computer-modeling software to analyze your initial concepts and optimize a proposal that meets even the most complex magnetic engineering challenges.


At Dexter we have a history of overcoming the challenges presented by applications for the oil & gas, aerospace and defense markets. Our magnetic assemblies are capable of handling the most challenging environmental conditions where extremes of temperature, precision and reliability are critical.


Linear motors come in three configurations. These are U-channel, flat-type, and cylindrical (tubular). Each have different characteristics because of the configurations, in force magnitude, speed, acceleration / deceleration, motion smoothness, leakage field, and cost.


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
