Linear Rails - LRS Motorized

Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, a premier manufacturer of linear motion products, offers the Haydon™ Linear Rail Systems (LRS™). These precision linear rail systems consist of a stationary base with a load bearing carriage that travels along a custom-extruded wear resistant aluminum rail. The motorized LRS uses a Haydon size 17 external linear actuator, or for greater performance, an optional size 17 double stack external linear actuator integrated into the slide for a complete single axis positioning system. A non-motorized system can also be ordered with various leads and shaft end configurations that accommodate virtually any source of rotary power. The lead screw is made from 303 stainless steel and coated with Black Ice™ TFE coating.

The LRS carriage design controls side movement with a patent pending self adjusting linear bearing. Integrated "T" slots accommodate full length support and various mounting options. The load easily attaches to the compact moving carriage with four or six screws. Designed to metric engineering standards, the rail provides end to end mechanical stability and precise, repeatable motion. The LRS comes standard with a general purpose nut. For extreme control and precision, the LRS can be built using the optional "CMP" compression style or the "WDG” wedge style anti-backlash nuts. Typical applications include medical, instrumentation, plant automation, CNC equipment, food and beverage automation, packaging and custom machinery.
