Bimba Manufacturing - Electric

Bimba Electric Motion


Bimba Manufacturing is a forward-thinking innovator of actuation technology, specializing in providing cutting-edge solutions to engineering challenges. Since introducing the round line, stainless steel body cylinder nearly five decades ago, Bimba has expanded its capabilities to include an extensive line of electric actuators and motion control solutions.

Electric Actuators

  • Round Line: Electric Actuators that provide precision positioning with programmable control.
  • Guided Thruster: For use in non-rotating applications where side or moment loading may be present.
  • Rodless: Precise position control for applications requiring high load carrying capabilities.

Motors & Controls


Bimba Stepper Motors are available for diverse applications with or without a Bimba electric Actuator.

Bimba stock Stepper motors available in AC, DC and Integrated (IntelliMotor®) versions for use in: 

  • Packaging 
  • Conveying
  • Food & Beverage
  • Lab Automation
  • Material Handling
  • High Speed Labeling 
  • Printing
