Linear drive

The M RG80 linear drive supplies up to 800 lb of side thrust for heavy-load, linear-motion applications. The drive features “rolling-ring” linear-motion engineering, enabling mechanical control over reversal, thereby eliminating the need for electronic controls. Also has a reversible motor. Additionally, linear pitch (speed) may be manually adjusted without gear reduction or adjusting drive motor speed. The drive provides linear motion in packaging and converting equipment and in other production machinery requiring a reciprocating linear motion component.
