The linear unit can extend in both directions. A geared servomotor is mounted on the outside of the aluminium profile and drives the actuator via a rack and pinion drive. Servomotors from other manufacturers, low backlash precision planetary gearboxes, end switches and distance measuring systems can be fitted on request.
Schaeffler: MTKUSE Telescopic Actuator
- Tuesday, 17 May 2016 09:23
Schaeffler has developed the MTKUSE telescopic actuator for secondary axes such as in pick-and-place applications or for tool transfer. Three precision linear ball bearing and guideway assemblies are arranged on top of one another, making the possible travel distance more than twice that of the basic actuator.
