Acorn has partnered with Gorman Dynamics to offer extremely high quality, high performance complete linear and rotary movement solutions.
Gorman Systems are the response to an ever-increasing demand for greater productivity, connectivity, efficiency & reliability.
All systems are designed to be ‘plug & play’ and are delivered working, tested with initial software set up and ready to go.
Gorman Dynamics recognises that, in order to achieve optimum speed, accuracy and a long life, all components and mounting surfaces need to be of the correct specification. Many of the components involved in Gorman Systems are manufactured in house; no extrusions here! In this way, mounting surfaces can be of the correct rigidity, stiffness and accuracy to enable maximum performance.
Acorn and Gorman offers a wide range of linear and rotary movement solutions, including: planar surface gantries; linear slide actuators; linear motor stages; belt and roller screw driven linear modules; electromechanical actuators and rotary actuators.

Electromechanical linear actuators
Electromechanical Actuators are becoming ever more popular as a complete movement solution. These are often replacing pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders for reasons of controllability and energy efficiency.
Ewellix offers a wide range of actuators, with forces from 50N to over 500kN. These can be supplied with a suitable motor (including servo motors) as a complete package, or simply as the mechanical actuator enabling the use of a customer specified motor.
