Latest News

Closing Out 2023


Now available online are the new GLA-Q40 250N and GLA-Q40 750N actuator options, further expanding our range of encoder-equipped linear actuators.

The GR-SENS has now been discontinued, with the GR-MOT1 providing an improved and fully integrated control replacement for many applications.

The website launch of the GR-SYNC controller has been delayed a bit, but you can expect it, and other encoder-interfacing control solutions, to arrive online in the new year.

Please be aware that we're now in the peak delivery season leading up to the Christmas break and so order processing and delivery times are longer than usual. We will be closed between the 22nd December to 2nd January inclusive, orders placed over this period will not be processed until our return. As usual, please head to the contact page if you have any questions.

New Products, Future Plans


During the past few weeks we have launched our new single-actuator control solution, the highly adaptable GR-MOT1, which offers many improvements over previous controllers. It is an ideal companion to many of our linear actuators and DC motors, when they are operated individually.

The GR-SENS current limiter is now reduced to clear, since the GR-MOT1 offers an improved alternative for many applications.

In the coming month you can expect the launch of new compact 250N and 750N actuator models, and finally the website launch of the GR-SYNC controller.

Website Refresh for August 2023


It's been our busiest year yet here at Gimson Robotics, but we have finally found time for a website upgrade. Expect faster loading times, more easily accessible user accounts, and higher resolution images. Please let us know if you spot any bugs.

Some older products are not yet published on our new platform, we'll be adding some of those back in as soon as possible. If you can't find something that you're looking for, please contact us and we'll be happy to help.
