  • SplineRail Linear Actuator
Jun 2011
Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions Inc.Request Info
WATERBURY, Conn., June 17, 2011 — The motorized SplineRail linear actuator with an integral connector is now available from Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions Inc.

Offered alone or with a harness assembly, the integral connector features a positive latch for high connection integrity and is rated for up to 3 A. The mating connector will handle a range of wire gauges from 28 to 22, a configuration that is ideal for users who want to plug directly into a pre-existing wire harness.

The device combines mechanical drive, guidance and a stepper motor actuator into a single compact component. It uses a size 17 single- or double-stack stepper motor with either a 1.8° or 0.9° motor step angle. In addition, screw leads are available from 0.05 to 1.2 in. per revolution, providing a range of performance profiles that include self-locking threads, which can support a load without external power or breaks.

The company’s SplineRail technology uses its lead screw, supported by bearings and contained within a concentric aluminum spline.

Applications include pick-and-place mechanisms and robotic assemblies in life sciences instrumentation, semiconductor equipment, business machines, and packaging and assembly, as well as a variety of factory automation applications.

When combined with the company’s range of motion control components, the linear actuator can be used to create custom systems for many types of motion.

linear actuator
High-precision motorized positioning device, often linked to computer control equipment.
stepper motor
A positioning drive that rotates a fraction of a 360° turn when the motor coils are activated, resulting in linear or rotary motion. They are generally one of two types, either variable reluctance or permanent magnet; the characteristics are much the same. Also called stepping motors.
