Haydon Kerk Compact integrated screw/slide system
The WGS wide guide screw has been added to the company’s linear slide product line. The linear slide uses a screw-driven carriage that offers continuous linear speed while maintaining accurate positioning. The WGS’ length and speed are not limited by critical screw speed, allowing high rpm, linear speed and long stroke lengths. The slide’s compact profile provides improved torsional stiffness and stability, and an integral mounting base can provide support over the entire length, which can extend up to 8 ft. Longer lengths are available on a special-order basis. Standard leads include 0.100-, 0.200-, 0.500- and 1.00-in travel per revolution.
