A new Linear Rail System uses a precision leadscrew assembly to provide controlled positioning along the axis of a robust linear slide. The system consists of a stationary base with a load-bearing carriage that travels along a custom-extruded, wear-resistant aluminum rail. It can use one of the company’s matching linear actuators or may be provided with various leads and shaft end configurations to accommodate virtually any source of rotary power. Slide bearing play is controlled with a self-adjusting linear bearing and loads easily attach to the moving carriage with screws. Typical applications include plant automation, food and beverage automation, packaging, and custom machinery.
