Non-ball lead screw-driven slide breaks the speed barrier
Kerk Motion Products' RGS Rapid Guide Screw is capable of speeds in
excess of 1.5m/s, rivalling belt- and cable-driven systems, yet offering
superior positioning accuracy, repeatability and axial stiffness. The
slide is driven by a precision-rolled stainless steel lead screw, and is
supplied with a wear-compensating, anti-backlash driven carriage. It is
readily available in lengths up to 2.4m, while longer units can be
manufactured to order.
