Linear Drives offer shaft cleaning and lubricating option.

Uhing linear drives are available with combination shaft scraper/grease fitting option for automatic cleaning and lubrication of drive shaft. While drive is running, fitting removes excessive grease, dust, and dirt from shaft and simultaneously ensures adequate shaft lubrication. Debris, as it accumulates at either end of shaft, can be wiped away with a cloth. In most applications, shaft scrapers...

Sensor-Controlled Winding System has internal compensation.
Machinery & Machining Tools

Sensor-Controlled Winding System has internal compensation.

Able to be used with Uhing traverses and other level winding traverse drives, AVS system uses sensors to monitor and coordinate spool rotational speed relative to accumulation of material at spool flanges. Continual automated balancing of spool rotational speed with line feed speed and traverse speed/position results in smooth, level wind with no depressions or bulges at spool flanges. Suitable...

Linear Positioning Drives offer adjustable pitch/side thrust.
Communication Systems & Equipment

Linear Positioning Drives offer adjustable pitch/side thrust.

Model RS linear drives feature adjustable axial thrust as well as pitch settings of 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, or 0.5 times shaft diameter. Side thrust and linear pitch will not vary when other is adjusted, simplifying process of finding settings that will enhance smooth linear movement and overall optimum drive function. Units achieve linear speeds of up to 5 fps, over distances of up to 13 ft, with...

Rolling Ring Drives offer grease fitting option.
Controls & Controllers

Rolling Ring Drives offer grease fitting option.

Providing axial thrust up to 800 lb, Uhing Rolling Ring Drives with grease fitting option achieve speeds up to 13 fps over travel distances up to 16 ft. When drive is running, fittings facilitate automatic shaft lubrication while wipers clean shaft, preventing buildup of grease. Mounted adjacent to wipers on each end of drive, grease fitting assemblies contain felt rings which absorb and evenly...

Rolling Ring Linear Drives slow down independent of motor.

Facilitating smooth reversal, Series RG offers option whereby end stop assemblies are fitted with V-shaped cams to decrease linear speed of drive prior to reversal without using electronic controls or reducing motor speed. After reversal, cams permit smooth ramp up of drive speed, eliminating possible whipping action of tools. Slowdown cam applications include applying coatings, slitting, spray...

Optical Flange Detector enhances spooling accuracy.

Optical Flange Sensing System enhances winding accuracy when used with Uhing traverse winding drives. Two versions are available: one relies on reflective properties of spool flanges, and one uses light curtain concept that does not require reflected light. Both systems employ opto-sensors to detect spool flanges and signal pneumatic or electronic switch to flip spring-actuated reversal lever on...

Winding Drive suits general spooling applications.
Computer Hardware & Peripherals

Winding Drive suits general spooling applications.

Uhing Model RGK3-20-0 rolling ring, traverse winding drive uses injection-molded plastic parts for housing and rolling ring carriers. It offers 110-130 Newtons axial thrust due to bearing assembly design where all 3 thrust rings pivot instead of one. Release lever enables user to slide drive freely on shaft without turning on motor. Linear pitch control mechanism is continuously adjustable from...
