Haydon Kerk Motion adds WGS Compact linear slide to product line-up.
Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions recently added its WGS Wide Guide Screw to its linear slide product line. Made from the same components as in the RGS Linear Rail Series, the slide has stroke options of 6, 12 and 18 inches in three different leads (0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 inch), and ships with a size 17 and a size 23 motor mount. Other available imperial and metric leads include short leads for non-backdriving vertical applications, as well as longer leads capable of speeds of more than 60 inches per second (1.5 meters per second). An integral mounting base can provide support over the entire length that can extend up to 8 feet (2.4 meters). All moving surfaces include Kerkite high-performance polymers running on a Kerkote TFE coating. The slides come with wear-compensating, anti-backlash driven carriages.
