Precision motion drive system for linear motion applications
Amacoil’s Model RG rolling ring linear drive is integrated with a motion controller for linear motion applications. This precision motion drive is fully programmable and meets application requirements for precision winding/spooling, pick-and-place machines, X-Y coordinate tool movement, metrology equipment and other machinery applications. The precision motion drive system provides 7 to 800 lb of axial thrust depending on the size of the RG drive nut in the system. Linear movement of the drive head is defined via software and monitored by sensors feeding back to the electronic control unit. While storing up to 20 programs, the system is suited for a range of materials including wire/cable, PVC tubing, string, fiber, rope, rubber hose, and vinyl strips. Drive nut travel direction, linear pitch, and other motion parameters are controlled by the angle of the rolling ring bearings inside the drive unit.
