'Folded-over' motorised linear rail system

25 October 2011

The Kerk RGS/RGW linear rail platform from Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions now includes a 180 degree folded-over motorised design, providing a small footprint linear actuator system for precision motion applications where space is at a premium. The folded-over linear rail contains all the components needed for a complete motion subassembly, including the stepper motor, belt and pulley, precision lead screw, bearing supports, and rail with load carriage.

The rail also facilitates the mounting of sensors within the integrated dovetail grooves. Standard drive ratios available from the motor to the screw are 2:1, 1:1, and 1:2, using lightweight aluminum pulleys and a fiberglass reinforced neoprene timing belt.  various screw leadsare also available.

All RGS and RGW linear rails feature standard wear-compensating anti-backlash driven carriages to ensure repeatable and accurate positioning. The splined aluminum guide rail and 303 stainless steel lead screw is Kerkote TFE coated to provide a permanently lubricated surface.
