Kerk Motion Products, one of the world's premier manufacturers of non-ball lead screws, will demonstrate its RGSW and RGSWX Series Slides in booth # 3005 at the upcoming SEMICON West 2008 show, from July 15-17 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. The slides provide both exceptional value and linear motion performance to engineers in demanding industries such as the semiconductor industry. Like the original RGS® slides, the RGSW and RGSWX slides offer precision motion in a convenient package. Their patented design allows high linear speeds without critical speed concerns.
Kerk's RGSW and RGSWX slides offer thicker and wider bases than the original, more compact RGS® slides. Both the RGSW and RGSWX series include direct sensor mounting systems and the RGSWX slides with direct motor mounting can accept NEMA-frame motors without any modifications or additional fabrication. Requiring no maintenance or lubrication, the anti-backlash slides can be manufactured in lengths up to eight feet. Longer lengths are possible on a custom basis.
The Kerk® RGSW and RGSWX enhance Kerk's product range and provide a more complete solution for customers requiring integrated product features. Additional carriages can be mounted on the rail for additional support required by larger loads or unusual mounting configurations.
