Ball Guided Rail Systems

Ball Guided Rail System
The BGS Linear Rail combines many technologies into a single integrated linear motion platform. The system provides excellent load capability and is engineered for both normal and overhanging loads. High roll, pitch, and yaw moment loading capability allows the system to maintain tight accuracy and repeatability, even in applications requiring significant cantilevered loading. The lead screw drives a machined aluminum carriage mounted to a precision stainless steel ball rail resulting in a rigid, smooth-operating motion system. Offers an optional wear-compensating anti-backlash driven carriage. Black Ice® TFE coated screw provides a permanent wear-resistant dry lubrication.

When integrated with an IDEA Drive, the system combines Haydon hybrid linear actuator technology with a fully programmable, integrated stepper motor drive. By combining technologies into a single preassembled unit, Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions is able to improve system integration for the equipment OEM or end user. The overall cost for the customer is also lowered by offering a complete solution as it eliminates the need for rotary-to-linear conversion, and simplified product development.
