Actuator MLA18

Strong & fast Inline Linear Actuator
Up to 4500N
Actuator MLA18


Small and compact, strong and fast industrial actuator

Movetecs inline MLA18 actuator series is most similar to the MLA17 series, but is designed for industrial applications that require higher load and speed. IP69K protection (option) ensures it will withstand high temperature, high pressure water jets, and the ingress of dust. Suitable for constructions that require small installation dimensions and a visual discrete actuator. Load up to 4500N. Hall sensors are optional.

Plug & Play: MLA18 is available as a plug & play solution, complete with one or more MLA18 actuators, a Movetec control box 230V AC, all cables and a control panel.

By selecting a control box with Bluetooth®, MLA18 are easily controlled by iPhone® or Android®-Smartphone.
