Linear actuator HUD030

HUD is a new, highly dynamic linear drive based on linear motors for material and product testing. It is suitable for tests on vibration dampers with force and displacement control.

  • Maximum frequency: 100 Hz
  • Maximum test load: 20 kN
  • Maximum test speed: 6 m/s

Other HUD drives are available for test speeds up to 8m/s, peak loads up to 80kN and static force up to 30kN. The higher peak loads achievable with the HUD series make it ideal for testing shock absorbers. In terms of dynamics, the HUD series only has to fear internal competition from the XUD series. With less moving mass, it achieves even higher acceleration values than HUD.


With its products, STEP Lab makes an important contribution to increasing the safety of people and structures by means of dynamic testing of components and products.
