EP/EPX-II linear units
Higher precision and lower tolerances of the mounting surfaces to one another are the key features that characterise the new improved version of the EP/EPX-II 30/40 linear units for the occasional through to the frequent movement and positioning of medium to high loads in any assembly position. The robust twin tube unit compensates for high bending moments during manual and motor-driven adjustments, is compatible with its predecessors and is easier to maintain and clean. Contributing towards the ease of maintenance is the new lead nut concept: the split lead nut enables simple replacement in the case of wear and tear – no need to dismantle the linear actuator. Another innovation is the optional spindle lock on the carriage. In this case, an inner tension element takes over the clamping of the drive screw, thus preventing any inadvertent shifting of the carriage. The optimised EP/EPX linear units offer improved running properties, lower wear and tear and an extended lifetime, thanks to the ideal combination of modern materials and the standardised use of high-performance slide guides – RK Rose+Krieger has replaced the coated metal bushes with adjustable conical slide bushes made of special plastic.
