The dual carriage RGS04 motorized linear rail assembly from Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions combines several motion technologies into one integrated system. The linear rail comes preassembled with the IDEA programmable actuator to simplify product integration for OEMs.
The Kerk RGS04 linear rails feature standard wear-compensating, anti-backlash driven carriages for repeatable, accurate positioning. All moving surfaces include Kerkite engineered polymers running on Kerkote TFE coating to produce a stable platform for various linear motion applications.
The IDEA programmable system combines Haydon hybrid linear actuator technology with a fully programmable, integrated stepper motor drive. The drives come with a patent pending graphic user interface to program motion profiles directly into the system. It also contains a debug utility for line-by-line execution of a motion program for troubleshooting.
Overall cost for customers is reduced by the single unit design. The complete solution eliminates the need for rotary-to-linear conversion and simplifies product development by requiring fewer components. Applications for the programmable motorized RGS04 include life science equipment, laboratory instrumentation, semiconductor processing equipment and other applications requiring precision linear motion.
