Made from the same quality components as used in the RGS®
The WGS slide has a unique, compact profile that provides improved torsional stiffness and stability versus Haydon Kerk's existing RGS and RGW slide products. Stroke options of 6", 12" and 18" are available in three different leads (0.1", 0.5" and 1.0") for 24-hour delivery at the Haydon Kerk e-commerce store. Each WGS Slide ships with a size 17 and a size 23 motor mount.
Information on other available imperial and metric leads is available at www.haydonkerk.com. These include short leads for non-backdriving vertical applications, eliminating the need for brakes, as well as longer leads capable of speeds of more than 60 inches per second (1.5 meters per second) that rival belts and cables, while offering superior positioning accuracy, repeatability, axial stiffness and lower maintenance costs. Longer lengths and different leads are available on a special order basis. An integral mounting base can provide support over the entire length that can extend up to 8 feet (2.4 meters).
The WGS utilizes sliding plane bearings on a low-profile aluminum guide rail that keeps the motion smooth throughout the travel distance. The lead-screw is precision made of high-quality stainless steel rolled on site at a Haydon Kerk manufacturing facility. All moving surfaces include Kerkite® high-performance polymers running on a Kerkote® TFE coating. The slides come with wear-compensating, anti-backlash driven carriages. Additional driven or passive carriages can be added, along with application-specific customization. Linear guides without the drive screw also are available.
