Rail Brakes

The RB Series of linear profile guide rail brakes from Nexen Group (Vadnais Heights, MN) use spring force to secure the load in holding applications. Each brake clamps directly onto the center of the guide rail for positive braking and holding in all axes. The brakes eliminate drive train backlash and elasticity, and are spring-engaged and air-released for power-off. Other features include an adjustable facing gap, a large friction facing contact area, and field-serviceable friction facing replacement.

Tie Rod Cylinder

The CA2 metric tie rod cylinder series from SMC Corp. of America (Indianapolis, IN) features aluminum die-cast covers to reduce weight. Cushioning capabilities were improved by increasing the volume of the cushion chamber and by using a floating cushion seal. The seal reduces movements of the piston rod at lower operating temperatures. The new design features allow 30% more kinetic energy absorption during the cushioning at the end of the stroke.

Voice Coil Actuator

Gee Plus (Elgin, SC) has announced the VM2436 voice coil actuator that provides bi-directional linearity over a maximum linear stroke of 0.59". It develops a peak force of almost 11 ounces in a package size of 0.94" outside diameter by 1.49" long. The actuator is constructed using a Teflon-impregnated coating on the core of the magnet assembly, with the coil assembly running directly against the surface. The actuator is suited for individual equipment requiring a z-axis drive.
