Aston, PA – Amacoil/Uhing has introduced a new option for Uhing RG linear drives which enables extremely fine adjustment to the linear pitch of the drive unit. Using the new control knob option, the pitch may be adjusted while the drive is moving without changing motor speed. Nor is there any need for gear reduction. The pitch adjustment option enhances both positioning accuracy of the drive unit and control over linear speed in linear motion applications, says the company. The standard linear pitch adjustment control on the Uhing RG drive is a lever which is manually moved to a notched setting on a scale. Each notch increases or decreases pitch by 0.01. There are 100 discrete notched settings on the scale which enable a 10:1 turndown of the linear pitch of the drive unit. Simply turning the control knob increases or decreases the linear pitch of a Uhing drive unit which effectively changes the linear speed of the drive.
