This configuration is well suited for users who want to plug directly into a pre-existing wire harness. The SplineRail combines mechanical drive, guidance, and a stepper motor actuator in a single, compact component. The system uses a Size 17 single stack or double stack stepper motor with either a 1.8 or 0.9 degree motor step angle. Screw leads are available from 1.27 to 30.5mm per revolution, providing a wide range of performance profiles that include self-locking threads, which can support a load without external power or breaks.

The SplineRail technology uses a Kerk precision rolled lead screw, supported by bearings and contained within a concentric aluminium spline, driving an integrated Kerkite composite polymer nut/bushing. The extruded aluminium spline offers excellent torsional stability. KerKote TFE coating and self-lubricating Kerkite nut/bushing material ensure long life and zero maintenance. Typical applications include pick-and-place mechanisms and robotic assemblies in life sciences instrumentation, semiconductor equipment, business machines, packaging and assembly.
