Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions has introduced the latest addition to its new BGS (Ball Guide Screw) linear rail product line. The BGS06 linear rail with the integrated IDEA Drive is a versatile system utilizing the popular size 17 single stack or double stack stepper motor linear actuator with an integrated and fully programmable stepper motor controller. 

All Haydon Kerk BGS rail systems utilize linear stepper motors and precision rolled 303 stainless steel lead screws. Lead screws are coated using Black Ice TFE coating providing a wear-resistant and maintenance-free dry lubrication. The lead screw drives a precision nut embedded in a machined aluminum carriage mounted to a stainless steel ball rail. The result is a rigid, smooth operating motion system. The BGS06 with the integrated IDEA Drive is available with the following standard features...
