This device provides for the elimination of a substantial amount of the cumbersome Linac actuator assembly by means of a coil bobbin having space for both stators and using only one set of pins to connect the upper portion and lower portion coil wires. The coil bobbin 1 is formed from a plastic mold and includes a stator pull aperture 10 and a pair of coil pin receptacles 20. The stator pull aperture 10 is precisely molded so that when an upper stator 30 and lower stator 35 are received in opposite ends of the stator pull aperture 10, they will be aligned in a precise fashion and define an accurate alignment between the stators, thereby eliminating the need for any adjustments. In operation, after the coil pins 50 are inserted into the receptacles 20, the coil bobbin 1 is wrapped.
