The company announces the dual carriage RGS04 motorized linear rail system. The system combines the company’s patented motion technologies in a single integrated system. The RGS brand linear rail will come preassembled with the IDEA programmable actuator that simplifies product integration for the OEM.
The rails have standard wear-compensating, anti-backlash driven carriages for accurate positioning. All moving surfaces have engineered polymers that run on Kerkote TFE coating, giving a stable platform for several linear motion applications.
The IDEA programmable system combines a fully programmable, integrated stepper motor drive with Haydon hybrid linear actuator. The programmable drive has an easy-to-use patent pending graphic user interface to directly program motion profiles into the system. It also contains a debug utility for easy troubleshooting, allowing line-by-line execution of a motion program.
By combining technologies into one preassembled unit, the company is able to improve system integration for the end user or equipment OEM. The overall cost is lowered by giving a complete solution as it simplifies product development with fewer components required and eliminates the need for rotary-to-linear conversion.
Applications include laboratory instrumentation, life science equipment, semiconductor processing equipment and other applications requiring precision linear motion.
