Product Announcement from THK America, Inc.
Structures and Features
Lightweight, high rigidity aluminum base with Caged Ball LM Guides has been utilized for the guide portion. A screw or belt options are available for the drive system. In addition, Caged Ball LM Guides and QZ Lubricator for the Ball Screw has been utilized to provide a long-term maintenance free actuator.
Utilizing Caged Ball LM Guide (SSR, SHS)
SSR model: Best suited for the horizontal application with its 90-degree ball contact structure in the radial direction.
SHS model: It can handle loads from all directions (radial, reverse radial, and horizontal) with its 4-way equal load rating capability.
[Ball Screw Type]
Variety of screw leads can be selected. For wrap-around motor types, three motor directions (left, right and bottom) can be selected.
[Timing Belt Type]
Highly rigid timing belt ensures that high speed processes are possible for longer stroke applications than the Ball Screw driven type.
Lightweight and High Rigidity
By using a hollow aluminum extrusion, light weight and high rigidity is achieved.
GL-N Model also available with optional QZ Lubricator
A Caged Ball LM Guide and QZ Lubricator for the Ball Screw have been utilized to ensure a long-term maintenance-free actuator.
Ensuring Adaptability with Most Advanced Motors
A large variety of flanges have been engineered so that a wide selection of motor options are available to be used with the GL-N.
Multiple Options Available
Multiple options such as covers, bellows, sensors and cable carriers are available.
Same Height as the Conventional GL Model
Due to the common height dimensions between the GL models and the GL-N models a drop-in replacement is possible.
