ECO60™ Linear Actuator

The ECO60 is a versatile, compact, and hassle-free actuator. It is designed to be 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 T-slot extruded base, you now have the freedom to mount the limit sensors wherever you want. The straightforward design allows you to use this actuator however you need to make your project work.

DualVee QuickShipSelect ECO60 products are now available as part of the QuickShip Program. (Ships from our facility in ≤2 business days).

ECO60 Filter Cleaning


How automation is saving the environment - one diesel truck at a time!


The traditional way to clean DPFs has always been to bring them to a facility that bakes them at 1150˚F for 12 hours. The problem however, is they can only be cleaned 3-4 times before the high heat cracks and breaks apart the ceramic parts of the filter. When this happens, the filter must be replaced at a hefty cost of $3-7K.

INDUSTRY: Automotive


Linear Actuator

The Signature Motion linear actuator series includes several lines from an economy line all the way up to high performance.

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.
