Model ARS Linear Drive assemblies are mechanically controlled alternatives to screws and other linear motion devices. Used in various types of production machinery, rolling ring engineering assures zero-backlash, even during reversal. Whereas screw-based systems can jam, the RS Linear Drive runs on a threadless shaft. No clogging or jamming means less downtime for repairs. RS drives also save on maintenance costs – the only maintenance needed is periodic shaft lubrication. Example applications: metrology machines, material handling equipment, test and measurement devices.
ARS drive assemblies are custom engineered for each specific application. Assemblies are furnished ready for machine-mounting including drive unit, shaft, rails and other options as required. Amacoil/Uhing RS drive units are also available separately.
