Linear Actuator Improves Accuracy and Motion Control

Kerk Motion Products, manufacturers of non-ball lead screws, announces its new Linear Actuator designed for positioning requirements in a variety of challenging applications. It is the first to incorporate Kerk’s trademark qualities of high precision, long life and patented technology in a value-priced rod-type linear actuator.

The Kerk Linear Actuator is lead-screw driven and provides an electromechanical alternative to a pneumatic actuator, improving accuracy and motion control in packaging industry applications. The ability to precisely move the actuator to any position and vary the speeds within the stroke, allows for flexibility and adjustability to accommodate the multitude of sizes, shapes and package changes. The actuator eliminates the noise, air quality and cost associated with pneumatics, is maintenance-free and does not require lubrication. It is reliable and provides long life even in harsh environments.

The Kerk Linear Actuator is designed to accept NEMA size 17, 23, and 34 motors, uses both Kerkote TFE Coating and Kerkite high-performance composite polymers in combination with Kerk Precision Lead Screws.
