Model ARG Linear Drive Assemblies are mechanically controlled alternatives to screws and other linear motion devices. Used for repetitive, back-and-forth linear motion, the drives reverse automatically without reversing the shaft. Travel direction and linear speed are mechanically controlled, independently of the drive motor. This simplifies machine design, set-up and operation by eliminating the need for electronic controls and programming. Example applications: winding machines, spray & coating equipment, scanning devices, other applications requiring reciprocating linear motion.
ARG drive assemblies are custom engineered for each specific application. Assemblies are furnished ready for machine-mounting including drive unit, shaft, rails, end stops, and other options as required. Amacoil/Uhing RG drive units are also available separately.
