Pinion System -- The Linear Drive Alternative
offers an advanced technology that revolutionizes linear motion. The Roller
Pinion System (RPS) provides zero backlash, very high positional accuracy,
unlimited length, very high speeds, 99% efficiency, high rigidity, low noise,
low maintenance, corrosion resistance, and long life. This opens up new design
possibilities and provides the capability to achieve much higher levels of
performance in machine designs.
unique RPS design eliminates many of the limitations of current linear drive
Ball Screws: Limited by critical speed, maximum speed, cumulative error,
vibration, thermal expansion, supplemental cooling, noise, low efficiency,
maintenance, and life.
Rack and Pinion: Limited by low accuracy and speed, backlash, tooth fatigue, noise, high cost of
dual and split pinion systems, high maintenance, and short life.
Drives: Limited by low accuracy, backlash, low load capacity, short lengths, belt
stretch, and low rigidity.
Motors: Limited by low load capacity, high cost, strong magnetic fields, and liquid
