Motorized Linear Rail Assembly Combines Motion TechnologiesHaydon Kerk Motion Solutions, a leading manufacturer of engineered linear motion products, offers the dual carriage RGS04 motorized linear rail assembly. This system combines many of Haydon Kerk’s patented motion technologies into a single integrated system. The RGS brand linear rail will come preassembled with the IDEA programmable actuator, greatly simplifying product integration for the OEM.

The Kerk RGS04 linear rails feature standard wear-compensating, anti-backlash driven carriages to ensure repeatable and accurate positioning. All moving surfaces include Kerkite engineered polymers running on Kerkote TFE coating, providing a strong, stable platform for a variety of linear motion applications.

The IDEA programmable system combines Haydon hybrid linear actuator technology with a fully programmable, integrated stepper motor drive. The programmable drive comes with an easy-to-use patent pending graphic user interface to program motion profiles directly into the system and also contains a “debug” utility allowing line-by-line execution of a motion program for easy troubleshooting.

By combining technologies into a single preassembled unit, Haydon Kerk is able to improve system integration for the equipment OEM or end user. The overall cost for the customer is also lowered by offering a complete solution as it eliminates the need for rotary-to-linear conversion, as well as simplifies product development with fewer components required.
