Haydon Kerk WGS compact integrated screw/slide system
Motion Technologies has available Haydon Kerk’s WGS Wide Guide Screw linear slide.
The linear slide utilises a screw-driven carriage that offers continuous linear speed, while maintaining accurate positioning. Length and speed of the WGS are not limited by critical screw speed, allowing high RPM, linear speed and long stroke lengths.
The slide has a compact profile that provides improved torsional stiffness and stability. An integral mounting base can provide support over the entire length, which can extend up to 2.4 m. Longer lengths are available as special orders.
Standard leads include: 2.54, 5.08, 12.7 and 25.4 mm travel/revolution and other imperial and metric leads are available. There are short leads for non-back driving vertical applications, eliminating the need for brakes, as well as longer leads capable of speeds of more than 1.5 m/s.
The device utilises sliding plane bearings on a low-profile aluminium guide rail that keeps the motion smooth throughout the travel distance.
All moving surfaces include Kerkite high-performance polymers running on a Kerkote TFE coating. The slides come with wear-compensating, anti-backlash driven carriages. Additional driven or passive carriages can be added, along with application-specific customisation. Linear guides without the drive screw also are available.
