Model RG Linear Drives 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.
RG drives are available in fifteen sizes to meet varying linear speed and axial thrust requirements. Amacoil/Uhing RG drives are also available on the shaft in a custom linear motion assembly.
- Axial Thrust (max.): 800 lbs.
- Linear Pitch: Variable
- Zero Backlash
