Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, a brand of AMETEK® Precision Motion Control, announces the release of its new Catalog and Design Guide, completely revised for 2013. The new Haydon Kerk linear motion catalog is expanded with new product sections, including IDEATM encoder-ready stepper motor controllers, BGS linear rail systems, and a linear rail application checklist. The new 250+ page catalog and design guide illustrates a wide range of products engineered for use as building blocks in sophisticated linear motion assemblies depending on the customers’ application needs.
The catalog is a “starting point” to help educate customers on Haydon Kerk technology, products, and core capabilities. The components themselves can be customized, or the customer can work directly with Haydon Kerk’s engineering team to design more complicated highly customized motion assemblies. The catalog is divided into 3 major sections: 1) Precision lead screw and nut assemblies; 2) Linear actuators and stepper motor drives; and 3) Motorized and non-motorized linear rail systems. In addition to basic product information, each section includes a brief overview of the technology behind the products, part number construction, sizing charts, and product comparison charts. Typical applications for Haydon Kerk products include robotics, infusion pumps in medical equipment, precision liquid dispense systems in laboratory automation equipment, transport stations and valves in semiconductor manufacturing equipment, factory automation, and other high-tech precision motion systems.
