Integrated Rack Range will mount directly to most Linear Guide Rails

Integrated Rack Range from Atlanta Drive Systems

ATLANTA Drive Systems, Inc. offers a range of Integrated Racks which mount directly to most standard linear guide rails, eliminating the need for additional machining and alignment, saving time and money. Compact, performance optimized designs can easily be achieved with these racks. By mounting the rack and rail together, the need for a separate mounting surface for the rail is eliminated.

Ball Toss Demo using a H2W Single Rail Stage

Ball Toss Demo using a H2W Technologies Single Rail Stage

H2W Technologies’ single rail positioning stage (SRS) utilized in a ball toss demo, which tosses a golf ball through a spinning hoop and then catches it using the built in sequencing and indexing capabilities of AMC’s servo drives.  There is no external controller or vision system used. The SRS-EX series stage is ideal for closed loop positioning applications that require long travel distances in a compact, small footprint.  It is assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion allowing for long travel distances without the need of machining additional components.

Medium Load Linear Slides with Built-in Controllers

T-LSR Medium Load Linear Slides with Built-in Controllers from Zaber Technlogies


Zaber's T-LSR Series devices are computer controlled motorized linear slides that can carry up to 20 kg loads. These stages offer 75 to 450 mm travel ranges, up to 80 mm/s speed, and up to 100 N thrust. Different pitch lead screw options allow for versions with different resolutions (fine to coarse), and the stages’ built-in controllers enable multiple units to be daisy-chained and controlled without additional hardware.

New Polynoid Linear Actuator Line

Polynoid Linear Actuator Line from H2W Technologies
With the recent acquisition of the Baldor linear motion product line, H2W Technologies now manufactures an extensive line of AC polynoid linear actuators. The AC polynoid is an electrically operated, open loop AC linear induction motor that provides a constant force over its entire stroke. It can run directly off of 115 / 230 VAC line voltage or with an adjustable frequency drive. Its direction of travel is reversible by switching 2 of the 3 leads.
