Linear Motors

Linear Motor MagneticsDexter can design, manufacture and deliver custom magnet solutions.

Deciding on the right linear motor based on your application can be a very challenging task. Dexter has extensive experience in the magnetics field and can assist your team with the development of a linear motor to ensure maximum performance. As a linear motor magnetics manufacturer, we will help select the right technology and assist in important selection criteria involving force calculations, environmental considerations, and magnetic flux interaction in the overall application. 

Linear Motor Magnetics

Precision linear motors are available in three different configurations: U-channel, flat-type, and cylindrical (tubular). Each type has different characteristics and capabilities in force magnitude, speed, acceleration/deceleration, motion smoothness, leakage field, and cost. The team at Dexter Magnetic Technologies will assess your needs and goals to develop a custom linear motor that meets your unique situation.

Linear motor magnetics is a zero-touch, zero-electricity solution for vehicle propulsion, sliding doors, conveyor belts, machine tools, and other fields that require a high degree of precision. Because linear motors utilize magnets to avoid physical contact, linear motor magnetics is a low-maintenance alternative to rotating motors.

The expert engineers at Dexter Magnetic Technologies design and test permanent magnet and electromagnet components, assemblies, and systems to control linear motion by selecting the best technical resources to support engineering designs that require a high level of precision. By optimizing your design for cost, performance, and quality, we are able to provide efficient and cost-effective linear motors to control linear motion.


At Dexter we have a history of overcoming the challenges presented by applications for the oil & gas, aerospace and defense markets. Our magnetic assemblies are capable of handling the most challenging environmental conditions where extremes of temperature, precision and reliability are critical.


Linear motors come in three configurations. These are U-channel, flat-type, and cylindrical (tubular). Each have different characteristics because of the configurations, in force magnitude, speed, acceleration / deceleration, motion smoothness, leakage field, and cost.


Dexter provides linear motors and custom designs for a wide variety of customers and applications including:

• Semiconductors
• Oil and Gas
• Defense
• Medical/Surgical Devices
• Medical/Surgical Implants and IVD testing
