Linear drives with fine stroke option
Amacoil’s Model RG linear drives feature a fine stroke option for fine adjustment of maximum travel distance. The option is designed to allow the end stops to ride on threaded rods with control knobs on both ends. Turning the rods moves the end stops in extremely small increments permitting very fine adjustments to the maximum stroke length. This facilitates accurate placement of the end stops for precisely establishing the linear drive reversal points. The fine stroke option is designed for linear motion applications where accuracy in setting the reversal points enhances process accuracy and integrity.
An additional feature is that operators may adjust the travel distance while the system is running, without placing hands near moving parts and risking injury. The Model RG drive is used in various types of production equipment including converting/packaging machinery, wire/cable spooling equipment and other automated machinery with a linear motion component. Uhing Model RG drives are available in nineteen sizes with axial thrust from 7 to 800 lbs.
