Uhing Precision motion drive system
The Model RG rolling ring linear drive is integrated with a motion controller for precision linear motion applications. The 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 providing fast, accurate positioning and reciprocating linear motion. Depending on the size of the RG drive nut in the system, the system provides from 7 to 800 lb of axial thrust. The drive head’s linear movement is defined via software and monitored by sensors feeding back to the electronic control unit. The drive stores up to 20 programs.
