Haydon Kerk Motion’s programmable splinerail linear actuator designed for programmability.
Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions introduced its Programmable Motorized SplineRail Linear Actuator, which combines mechanical drive, guidance, and control in a single component. The system uses a size 17, single stack or double stack stepper motor with the integrated Haydon IDEA Drive, which incorporates a graphic interface for programming through the use of on-screen buttons.
The SplineRail utilizes a Kerk precision rolled lead screw, supported by bearings and contained within a concentric aluminum spline, driving an integrated Kerkite composite polymer nut/bushing. When mounted vertically, the actuator can also be used to simultaneously lift and rotate (Z-theta motion).
Screw leads are available from 0.05-in. to 1.2-in. per revolution providing a wide range of performance profiles, including self-locking threads that can support a load without external power or breaks. Haydon Kerk specializes in custom solutions and the SplineRail is a versatile platform to build upon.
