ECO60™ Linear Actuators
Bishop-Wisecarver is excited to introduce the new and improved ECO60. This innovative and versatile actuator is designed to be hassle-free, simple and straightforward. We’ve worked hard to make the ECO60 more user-friendly and out-of-the-box ready. No longer will you have to struggle to assemble a multi-piece carriage and base because we consolidated it down to a single piece design. The integrated motor mount works with NEMA 17 and can be adapted to a NEMA 23 with a simple expansion flange. With our innovative T-slot extruded base, you now have the freedom to mount the limit sensors wherever you want. Our new ECO60 has all the durability and compact robustness of its predecessor, but with more simplicity and the freedom to make your project work the way you need it to.

Where are ECO60 actuator products manufactured?
ECO60 actuators are produced at BWC headquarters near San Francisco, California, USA.
What materials are ECO60 actuators made from?
ECO60 is mostly aluminum in construction and made from 6061-T6 and 6063-T6 grades. The fastener hardware is all stainless steel including the lead screw and support bearings. The lead screw nut and sliding element linear bearings are made of plastic polymers.
Why is the carriage preload adjustment feature a benefit?
The ability to adjust the carriage preload is a benefit to end-users because it enables an application specific "feel" or "tune". The adjustment can be loose for less friction and lower wear rates, but a decrease in accuracy with additional carriage rock. A tighter adjustment will have more friction and higher wear rates, but improved accuracy and reduced carriage rock. Adjustments can be made periodically during the life of the actuator to compensate for wear in the bearing elements.
How much additional protection does the dust cover option provide?
The dust cover provides protection from debris falling onto the ECO60 from above. The sides remain open and exposed because of the design of the moving carriage. The dust cover is not effective when the actuator is mounted on the side. The cover does not have an ingress protection rating (IP rating), but if it did, it would be around an IP10 or IP20.
What fasteners are recommended for mounting ECO60?
The base of ECO60 has through hole and counter bore features to accomodate either 10-32 or M5 fasteners. Low head cap screws or button head cap screws in stainless steel are recommended.
How do I replace worn parts, or disassemble my ECO60?
There is a guide for how to properly disassemble an ECO60 and install the replacement parts that are provided in the repair kit. Contact BWC application engineers for this documentation.
