Rack and Pinion System offers high linear accuracy.

Rack and Pinion System includes gear reducer or gearmotor with integrated pinion and rack. All mounting surfaces are ground to tight tolerances. Standard rack lengths are 167 to 500 mm. High linear accuracy is due to minimum total pitch error of 12 -µm per 500 mm of length. Load capacities up to 13,000 N are available. Wear-resistant surface treatment and individually deburred gear teeth provide...

Stepper Motors have integral fail-safe brakes.

Stepper Motors have integral fail-safe brakes.

Brakes, coupled to 5-Phase AM Stepper motors, stop heavy loads rapidly and hold them stationary in case of power failure. Holding torque ranges from 41.66 to 138.87 oz-in. Brakes are part of NEMA-size 23 or metric-size 34 package, with dielectric strength sufficient to withstand 0.5 kV at 50 Hz, insulation resistance of 100 Mohms or better, with 500 V potential applied between motor windings and...

Grinding Wheel makes it easy on operator.

Grinding Wheel makes it easy on operator.

Type 29 Z-Plus weighs half of typical 4 1/2 in. grinding wheel, thus increasing operator's control and comfort while decreasing fatigue, particularly with small grinders used in tight spaces and at odd angles. Wheel's slightly concave profile lessens grinder's angle of attack, also reducing operator fatigue. Wheel has aluminum oxide abrasive, making it suited for blending and surface weld removal...

Aluminum Shafting resists corrosion and wear.

Aluminum Shafting resists corrosion and wear.

Drylin-® S aluminum shafting works with DryLin-® R linear bearings and Iglide-® plain bearings. Anodized shafting has lower coefficient of friction and 3X lifetime of steel when run against appropriate bearing material. Aluminum shafts are available in nine models ranging from 1/4 to 2 in. dia. Shafting can be cut to length per customer requirements.

Rotary Actuators provide precise positioning.

Rotary Actuators provide precise positioning.

CRAB Series feature modular construction to promote customization, and perform with few moving parts. Preloaded ball-screw assembly and gear-tooth profile virtually eliminate backlash. Actuators can achieve rotational motion ranges from 100 to 360 deg (depending on rack length) and torque capacity exceeding 5100 lbs-ft of force. All are self-contained and ready-to-mount for plug-in operation (AC...

Stepping Actuator provides long controlled movement.

Stepping Actuator provides long controlled movement.

Model DSM4234LN stepper motor can continuously move linear pole with precision of 0.0035 mm full-step linear movement, or 0.00175 mm with half-step drive. Leadscrew nut formed in shaft has M4 hole threaded through center, which enables variable shaft lengths of any practicable size to be used. Threaded nut supports front bearing to adjust for minimum backlash. Applications include throttle...
