Heavy-duty traverse drives

Uhing RG50, RG60, and RG80 drives now have a 100-notch scale for pitch-adjustment control, doubling precision over previous versions for more-accurate incremental linear movement. The unit’s 10:1 linear-pitch range is now adjustable over 100 discrete notched settings. A worm-gear option makes linear pitch infinitely adjustable using a control knob.

Large RG traverse drives provide from 225 to 800 lb of axial thrust and are primarily used for traverse winding of thick cable, heavy rope, and chain onto spools and reels. RG drives are also used for linear motion in packaging and converting equipment, and in other production machinery requiring reciprocating linear motion. “Rollingring” mechanical control over reversal eliminates the need for electronic controls and a reversible motor.
