Amacoil-Uhing Model RG linear drive assemblies are built for various types of production equipment
Amacoil-Uhing Model RG linear drive assemblies are designed to feature an option for fine adjustment of travel distance. The option is constructed to enable location of the drive unit reversal points. This is made for linear motion applications where precision setting of the reversal points is made to enhance process accuracy and integrity. The Model RG drive is built for various types of production equipment including converting/packaging machinery, wire/cable spooling equipment and other automated machinery with a linear motion component.
Amacoil says that operators may adjust travel distance while the drive is running, without placing hands near moving parts and risking injury. The control knobs are typically positioned on the end of the threaded rods opposite the drive end of the assembly, made to assure clearance for connecting the shaft to the drive motor. Uhing Model RG drives are available in seventeen sizes with axial thrust from 7 to 800 pounds. A complex electronic control system is designed to be unneeded because travel speed and direction are mechanically controlled, independent of the drive motor.
