Haydon Intros Linear Rail System Line
Linear rail system.
Waterbury, CT — Haydon Switch & Instrument, Inc. is introducing its latest product line, Linear Rail Systems. The new system uses a precision leadscrew assembly to provide controlled positioning along the axis of a robust linear slide. The system consists of a stationary base with a load bearing carriage that travels along a custom-extruded wear resistant aluminum rail. It uses either the company's size 17 hybrid external linear actuator.

For greater performance, an optional size 17 hybrid double stack external linear actuator can be integrated into the slide for a complete single axis positioning system, or the system may be provided with various leads and shaft end configurations that accommodate virtually any source of rotary power.

The Linear Rail Systems also offer control of slide bearing play with a patent-pending self-adjusting linear bearing. Integrated "T" slots accommodate full length support and various mounting options. Loads easily attach to the compact moving carriage with four or six screws. Designed to metric global engineering standards, the rail provides end-to-end axial stability and precise motion system accuracy.

For extreme control, the Linear Rail Systems can be used with the company's high precision anti-backlash nuts including "C" compression style, "W" wedge style, as well as Haydon freewheeling "N" style nuts. Typical applications include medical,

instrumentation, plant automation, CNC equipment, food and beverage automation, packaging and custom machinery.
