Lead screw driven actuator beats pneumatics in packaging applications
11 October 2006
Non-ball lead screw specialist, Kerk Motion Products has introduced a new lead screw driven linear actuator that provides an electromechanical alternative to pneumatic actuators, improving accuracy and motion control in packaging industry applications. The actuator can be moved precisely to any position and its speed varied within the stroke, meeting the demands of flexible packaging applications involving a multitude of packaging sizes, and shapes. The actuator eliminates the noise, air quality and cost issues associated with pneumatics; it is maintenance free and does not require lubrication.
The Kerk Linear Actuator uses both Kerkote TFE Coating and Kerkite high-performance composite polymers in combination with Kerk Precision Lead Screws. It is designed to accept NEMA size 17, 23, and 34 motors.
