RGS04

RGS04 Non-motorized Linear Rail
The Non-Motorized RGS04 Linear Rail is available with an input drive shaft that can be coupled to a motor or mechanical transmission. Rails can also be customized in stroke length, one or dual carriage and coatings. Contact an Applications Engineer for any technical support needed.

  • Lubrication +


    Kerk RGS Linear Guides have Kerkote® TFE on all critical surfaces.

    All moving surfaces include Kerkite® engineered polymers running on Kerkote® TFE coating, providing a strong, stable platform for a variety of linear motion applications.

    Kerkote TFE is a soft coating, a long-term dry lubricant that is optimized for softer plastics like acetyls and nylons, with or without mechanical reinforcement. Lubrication to the nut / lead screw interface occurs by the nut picking up Kerkote TFE particles from the coating as well as from the migration of the internal lubricant within the plastic nut. The lubricant, although solid, also has some “spreading” ability as in fluid lubricants. Kerkote TFE coated screws provide the maximum level of self-lubrication and should not be additionally lubricated or used in environments where oils or other lubricant contamination is possible.
  • Customize +


    Haydon Kerk can custom-design and manufacture unique motorized RGS linear rails solutions to your equipment requirements. Special motor attributes, rail lengths, multiple carriages, alternate lead screws, lubrication, encoders and integrated drives are just some of the typical adaptations engineered to customer needs. Every Haydon Kerk linear rail product is supported by an experienced technical team recognized for innovation, customization, and dedicated customer service.
  • Linear Guide only +


    Kerk RGS Linear Guides provide a strong, stable platform for a variety of linear motion applications. The RGS Linear Guide is designed to easily mount to any flat surface, or bridge free spans, with a convenient, easy-access carriage. The splined aluminum profile, with Kerkote® TFE coating, combines low friction linear guidance with torsional stability. This proven combination of materials assures exceptionally long life without the need for adjustment, lubrication or maintenance. The simplicity of the RGS Linear Guide makes it both easy to use and a great value. The Kerk® RGS Linear Guides are perfect companions to the Kerk® RGS series of screw-driven linear slides.
