Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, a brand of AMETEK Precision Motion Control (Waterbury, CT), has introduced the BGS06 BGS (Ball Guide Screw) linear rail system utilizing the popular size 17 single-stack or double-stack stepper motor linear actuator. Depending on static, dynamic, and moment load requirements, the user can choose among three BGS frame sizes: the BGS04, BGS06, and BGS08. All frame sizes are designed to position heavy loads and maintain repeatability and accuracy, while withstanding significant cantilevered loading.The rail systems utilize linear stepper motors and precision-rolled 303 stainless steel lead screws. Lead screws are coated using Black Ice® TFE coating, providing a wearresistant and maintenance-free dry lubrication. The lead screw drives a precision nut embedded in a machined aluminum carriage mounted to a stainless steel ball rail.
