Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions Products

Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions has the experience, the people, the technology, and the facilities to design a linear motion solution that will put your challenging ideas into practical motion. Our on-site technical team is ready to assist you.

We offer a combined 80 years of design and manufacturing history in the field of precision linear motion; an indispensible asset in meeting the challenges of today’s tough application needs such as laboratory automation, medical instrumentation, semiconductor fabrication equipment, military, aerospace, and industrial applications.  Modified for application-specific needs, Haydon Kerk builds linear motion solutions based on a wide portfolio of products including stepper motor linear actuators, programmable linear actuators, precision lead screws and anti-backlash nuts, motorized and non-motorized linear rails, and linear guides.



Kerk® brand anti-backlash nut and acme lead screw assemblies easily interface with many types of rotary power sources for an optimized precision linear motion system including stepper motors, servo motors, brushless DC motors, brush-type DC motors, and AC synchronous motors. For optimum performance and accuracy, several patented anti-backlash designs are available, depending on application needs.

The Haydon™ line of stepper motor linear actuators offers an effective solution that simplifies the conventional way of translating rotary to linear motion. This rotary-to-linear conversion is unique; it takes place within the stepper motor itself therefore eliminating the use of belts and pulleys, rack and pinion, and other mechanical components.  Hybrid linear actuators are available in size 8, size 11, size 14, size 17, size 23, and size 34.  Can-Stack linear actuators are available in diameters ranging from 15mm to 46mm.

Stepper motors and stepper motor linear actuators require external electronics in order to operate. The most effective way to optimize the performance from a stepper motor is through the use of a chopper drive, also known as a constant current drive. Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions offers several types of chopper and microstepping chopper drives.

Linear rails should be considered when a more extensive linear motion solution is desired to lower overall system material cost, engineering time, and assembly cost. The linear rails and slides are complete mechanical assemblies that include the linear bearing, rotary bearings, mechanical frame, leadscrew assembly, and when required, a motor or integrated motor/drive unit.

Linear Guides and Splines are motion components used for anti-rotation, bridging spans, and additional system support and guidance.
