THK Introduces Type CKR Actuator For Clean Room Applications
Schaumburg, IL - (June 28, 2006) Designed for clean room environments, THK's new Type CKR Actuator offers low dust generating and corrosion-resistant features.
For reduced dust generation, the Type CKR incorporates a unique sealing mechanism that achieves cleanliness of Class 4 under the ISO14644-1: 1999, which is equivalent to class 10 under Fed. Std. 209E (internal suction, under down flow environment). The CKR has externally mounted suction couplings for particle collection. AFE grease is utilized to generate an extremely low level of particles. To resist corrosion, the LM rail and ball screw of the Type CKR are surface treated.
Based on the proven design as THK's Type KR LM Guide Actuator, the Type CKR is compact, rigid and highly accurate. THK's Type CKR Actuator offers positioning accuracies of 0.010mm, overall rail lengths from 100mm to 940mm and stroke ranges of 41.5mm to 808mm.
THK manufacturers the widest range of linear motion products including conventional LM guides, ball screws, mechanical actuators and ball splines and more. All THK products have been designed and manufactured to meet the strictest requirements. THK's experienced Global Engineering Team can provide customized linear motion solutions with our standard linear motion products as well as our mechatronics products for your most demanding applications.
