In metrology machines, the Amacoil/Uhing RS linear drive provides backlash-free linear motion. There is constant contact between the bearings and the drive shaft – even during reversal. The result is zero play which improves accuracy in profile measuring procedures.
In material handling systems, Model RS rolling ring drives provide smooth linear movement. The inherent low maintenance of RS drives make them well suited for material handling systems such as conveyors and other devices subject to the wear and tear resulting from high usage rates.
The RS linear drive is well suited to indexing equipment in automated machinery. Robotic arms have a limited range of motion, however, an X-Y table driven by an RS unit significantly extends the range of motion of the robot along single or multiple linear axes.
