There is newer and improved version of this product available HERE.
The ECO60 is a low cost, US made linear actuator in a small compact design that incorporates the latest in sliding element linear bearings and Bishop-Wisecarver prepared Mil standard Hardcoat aluminum shafting for smooth, and durable linear actuation. It includes an aluminum carriage with fully adjustable preload, and easy to replace sliding bearings. The aluminum construction and sliding element bearings make the ECO60 ideal for use in harsh or wet conditions. Low Maintenance, Adaptable & Half the Price
The ECO60 is comparable to Asian actuators with a footprint of 60mm wide by 33mm tall. That’s where the similarities end. The ECO60 has a pre-loadable carriage top can be custom adjusted to suit your needs. Find the perfect balance between snug fit and smooth linear motion. As the sliding elements wear, make adjustments to correct until they are worn out and then replace them with an ECO60 repair kit.
The ECO60 Carriage
The ECO60 carriage is made from billet aluminum and all surfaces are machined to allow for correct contact and conformity between the sliding element linear bearings and the hard anodized shafting to enable smooth and efficient linear motion. The carriage is anodized and has stainless steel threaded inserts in the carriage pre-load adjusting threaded holes for improved durability and strength.
The sliding element linear bearings are constrained inside specially machined notches to maintain alignment and make assembly simple. The liner bearing material is polymer and suitable for a wide range of applications including in wet and debris contaminated areas. The carriage pre-load is easily field adjustable to provide user preferred snugness and can be re-adjusted to compensate for wear on the linear bearings. The sliding elements can be replaced when worn out. The ECO60 Repair Kit
BWC Offers a repair kit which includes the end support bearings, lead screw nut, sliding elements, bearings and a lubrication pen. The repair kit enable long service life without having to change the complete actuator assembly and within minutes you will be fully functional. Harsh Environment Ready
Hardcoat shafting combined with the sliding linear elements make the ECO60 ideal for harsh or wet conditions including diluted lye, weak acids, cleaning agents for wash down applications, alcohol, hydrocarbons, grease, oils and fuel. Durable Design
The ECO60 is made to be tough and durable. The base, end plates and top carriage are all made from 6061-T6 aluminum and are machined to have all surfaces within .002”. All parts are anodized for an attractive, corrosion-resistant finish. Linear slide shafting is made from hardcoat finished aluminum. Gantry Configurations
Gantry and multi-axis configurtions are simple to configure and design with the standardized gantry plates. The XY plate enables 2-axis attachment across a horizontal plane, while the XZ bracket enables 2-axis attachment in a vertical plane. The Signature Motion ECO60 can be mounted horizontally,vertically, or inverted without a reduction in load capacity. Options
• Optional dust cover strip
• Home and limit travel sensors
• Lead screw pitch choices
• NEMA 17 or NEMA 23 stepper motor mounts
