Linear actuators


Durable actuator with powerful lift (up to 8,000 N) made for a range of healthcare applications, such as beds, couches and chairs for treatment, wheelchairs, operating tables, patient lifts and dental chairs.


Product description


The LA40 is a low-noise and powerful actuator, available in a 1,500 N, 4,000 N, 6,000 N and 8,000 N version.

It enables LINAK to offer a durable actuator with high speed/high performance and mechanical endstop for first failure safety. This makes it the right choice for the future market. The LA40 versions are rated up to IPX6 Washable DURA™, except for the LA40 PL version which is rated up to IPX6.

The LA40 (8,000 N) is available in three versions:

  • LA40 (Standard)
  • LA40 HP (High Performance)
  • LA40 PL (Patient Lift)

Based on the extensive knowledge and experience from previous actuator families, LINAK has developed new gear and braking principles that improve the efficiency of the LA40. These innovative solutions are covered by several patents.

Equipped with a socket for exchangeable cables, the LA40 has the same flexibility as previous families, and existing minifit cables can be used.

The LA40 family has a very smooth design, expanding its field of application thanks to easy cleaning and mounting flexibility.

The LA40 is designed for a wide range of applications within both the medical and beds market, such as care and hospital beds, couches, and dental chairs. The LA40 can be ordered with an optional spline function (push only) and/or quick release.

LA40 8,000 N range:

  • The standard version runs 8,000 N from 0-50 mm stroke length with a subsequent decreasing load on the rest of the stroke length 
  • The High Performance version can perform 8,000 N on full stroke length 
  • The Patient Lift version can perform 8,000 N on full stroke length.
