The Kerk® RGS® Rapid Guide Screw is a screw-driven slide that offers exceptional linear speed, accurate positioning, and long life in a compact, value-priced assembly. The length and speed of the RGS is not limited by critical screw speed, allowing high RPM and linear speeds, even over long spans.
Standard leads include .100-in, .200-in, .500-in and 1.00-in (2.54, 5.08, 12.7 and 25.4 mm) travel per revolution. Many optional leads, both inch and metric based, offer everything from high efficiency to non-backdriving leads for vertical applications, eliminating the need for brakes. With HaydonKerk Motion Solutions™ wide range of available leads, speeds of more than 60 inches per second (1.5 meters per second) are possible, rivaling belts and cables while offering superior positioning accuracy, repeatability and axial stiffness.
