THK KR-RL actuator integrates LM guide and right/left ball screw.
THK launched its Type KR-RL LM guide actuator, which features a driving element that uses right/left threads and enables symmetrical movements with a single motor. The actuator integrates an LM guide and a ball screw. The Type KR-RL is designed to handle loads in all four directions (radial, reverse-radial, and horizontal), making it possible to install in any mounting orientation. The unit is designed for a range of applications, including gripping, measuring, and positioning for robot hands, screw tightening machines, cutting equipment, and dispensers. It is available in nine sizes ranging from 15mm to 65mm with long or short block types.
