Linear drive speed control
Uhing √É¬¨rolling ring√É¬Æ drives now feature two design options for fine adjustment of linear speed, neither of which requires electronic controls or programming. A control lever/dial provides 100 discrete settings, permitting changes to the drive√É¬≠s linear pitch (distance traveled per shaft revolution) in 0.01 in. increments.
Alternatively, for applications requiring more precision, a worm gear
design allows users to adjust pitch by turning a control knob attached
to a threaded rod which bypasses individual pitch settings to provide
virtually unlimited fine tuning of linear speed.
