Heavy Duty Rod Actuators

Firgelli Automations


These Heavy Duty Linear Actuators come in a variety of forces from 200lbs up to 1,000lbs force and strokes from 3" to 30" or custom strokes, if requested. They are a worm gear drive mechanism which means they are very quiet and offer a high efficiency as a result.

Use the MB3 or MB3U brackets for these actuators for mounting as an option. 

The Heavy Duty line was developed with high standards in mind. Our clients demand the best quality and performance for their money, inspiring us to come up with such a rugged design. This versatile unit features an aluminum shaft to shed weight, internal limit switches, an aluminum alloy inner tube, as well as a high performance 12 volt DC motor which is capable of producing between 200 and 1000 lbs. (90-453 kg) of force.

No matter your application, installation doesn’t need to be a hassle. Required components consist of just two brackets, one for either side, with quick release pins for easy fitment and set-up. Controlling the unit is just as easy via a 2-wire system, making this unit a ‘plug and play’ type accession unique to Firgelli Automations.

 All of our units are CE and ROHS certified, and come with a 12 month mechanical warranty to keep your units serving you best. Our company values revolve around providing quick and friendly customer service that will follow your experience with our products and staff.
