Oriental Motor's LS Series of rack & pinion systems provide linear operation for pressing and lifting applications. Available in both horizontal and vertical orientation the rack-and-pinion gearheads are coupled with standard AC compact motors.
A "linear head" or rack & pinion system can generate linear motion simply by combining a standard AC motor.
Linear heads can be combined with a wide range of standard AC motors and also available with many different stroke lengths for use in simple operations such as push, pull, lift and lower.
Each model comes in two types; horizontal type and vertical type, to allow for mounting in different directions to meet various limitations on installation.
