ML Miniature Linear Actuator Series

Driven to excel in confined systems

The ML Series are the smallest and most compact line of linear actuators offered by PBC Linear™. With actuator stroke lengths available up to 650 mm (25.6 in), this design incorporates feature advancements not offered by other competitors in this size range of actuators. Three (3) models are available:
