Our Actuators

We have one of the largest, most diverse selections of linear actuators in the world. It includes high speed, industrial, miniature and mini-tube as well as track actuator models. Each model has unique capabilities to make sure we have an actuator for whatever application you may have in mind. Whether that be the our high force industrial actuator capable of producing up to 3000lbs or our PA-14P unit that comes with a built-in potentiometer, we’ll have an actuator for you. We work tirelessly to bring you the highest quality actuators in the business and are always striving for innovation in our units. Take our micro linear actuator for example, the smallest unit we have ever created, made for those jobs where limited space is a huge factor. Every one of our units is quality tested and has been proven successful by our long list of satisfied customers.

We carry the biggest in stock inventory in the industry and it is all available for same-day shipping.  All in-stock models are 12V linear actuators and come with an industry leading 18-month warranty. If by chance you need a unit with very specific specifications that do not match our in-stock selection, we have a custom actuator service that allows you to customize your own unit. Each actuator has different custom options available including but not limited to custom voltage, force, stroke length, dimensions and feedback control. If you’d like to get started with a custom order today, just get in contact with us regarding the specifications you require and we’ll help you make it a reality. 

Our Industries 

Our Progressive actuators are used in a wide array of technological applications and industires ranging from simple home automation mechanisms, marine & automotive automation, industrial automation & equipment, construction machinery, advanced robotics and other various projects and applications as well. An example of what exactly our electric linear actuators can do include upgrading a car with automated windows, door locks and even regulating the engines speed, just to name a few ways actuators are used in the automotive industry. Another big industry where you can find our 12 volt linear actuators is the medical industry, automating important medical technology like adjustable scanning tables or helping patients reposition their hospital bed with a press of a button.

While our actuators are popular in large industries like those mentioned above, we also have a very large customer base of hobbyists just looking to create their own mechanisms and applications. Some of the coolest and most interesting projects we’ve seen that use our actuators come from these hobbyists. Projects like making a secret bookcase door, a hidden TV that lowers into view from a ceiling and even a fully functional Wall-E robot all came from small time hobbyists who just wanted to make something cool with our actuators. 



Our Accessories

Although our focus here at Progressive is linear actuators, we know that in order to make your project come to life you’ll need more than just the actuator. That is why we have a selection mounting brackets, control systems, power supplies and accessories to go with the actuators. Each one of our actuator models comes equipped with factory manufactured mounting holes on both end and have specifically designed mounting brackets to go with them, for the stroke and motor end. These are made only from the strongest and sturdiest materials in order to keep your unit safe and secure when mounted. With our mounting brackets the mounting process is made simple and every set of brackets comes with everything you need for installation. For control of all of our linear actuator models we have numerous advanced control systems including our line of PLC controls and specialized control boxes. Our control boxes provide a variety of different ways to control our actuators such as synchronized movement cycles and Wi-Fi control.

Once you have a project built combining our 12v linear actuators, control systems and brackets, you’ll still need something to power that system. That is why we carry a selection of power supplies and adapters with many different voltage and amperage ratings to energize your actuator applications. We also have actuator accessories that you can add to your application. You can find relays, speed controllers, wiring kits and other useful actuator accessories to really take your application to the next level. 

Our Resources

Not only do we have everything you need for your 12 volt actuators, we also have an extensive library of technical data resources so you can learn more about our products and how they work. All our electric actuators have a product PDF which you can find on their product pages as well as in our technical data section. These PDFs have all the actuator information you could ask for including expanded specifications, custom options, dimensional drawings as well as the actuator internals. We also have 3D models of all of our actuators that are available to download. In our Technical Data section you can also find wiring diagrams that will show you how to wire our actuators with various controllers and rocker switches.

If you still have questions about our electric actuators than our highly trained staff of engineers will be here to help. They are available to talk you directly over the phone or through email and will help with whatever questions or concerns you may have regarding our actuators.
