The Model RS rolling-ring linear-drive family now includes the RS8 drive nut. The new nut drive runs on an 8-mm-diameter, case-hardened and ground, smooth shaft with no threads to trap debris and cause clogs or jams, providing built-in overload protection. Drive-system components are protected from possible damage from the churning and grinding that sometimes occurs with linear-drive devices, resulting in less downtime for cleaning threads and making repairs.
The RS8 features zero backlash linear motion and the inner race of each rolling-ring bearing is in constant point-contact with the shaft. Ten RS drive-nut models are available, each with a specific axial thrust capacity.
