  • Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions is the joining of 2 world class brands in the field of linear motion; Haydon™ and Kerk®. Together, we now offer a broad range of precision linear motion products. Recognized as a leading manufacturer of precision acme lead screw and anti-backlash nut assemblies, stepper motor based linear actuators, and linear rail and guide systems, Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions offers high performance in demanding applications such as laboratory automation, medical instrumentation, semiconductor fabrication, military, aerospace, and industrial applications.
Product Portfolio

  • Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions offers a unique line of hybrid stepper motor linear actuators that open new avenues for equipment designers who require high performance and exceptional endurance in a very small package. The various patent pending designs use a proprietary manufacturing process, which incorporates engineering thermoplastics in the rotor drive nut and a stainless steel acme lead screw. This allows the linear actuator to be much quieter, more efficient and more durable than the v-thread and bronze nut configuration commonly used in other linear actuators. Motor life is improved more than 10 times over the traditional bronze nut style – and it requires no maintenance and does not affect the cost. An additional feature is the bearing pre-load adjustment which, unlike other designs, does not protrude from the motor configuration commonly used in other actuators.

      • Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions offers a full range of linear actuators from size 8 to size 34 in a wide range of force outputs. All stepper motor linear actuators can be customized for application specific needs.
      • IDEA™ Programmable Stepper Motor Controller

      • The IDEA™ Drive Stepper Motor Controller is a stepper motor drive and fully programmable control unit that uses an intutitive patent-pending Graphic User Interface (GUI).

      • Available: Captive/Non-captive and External

      • Haydon offers a miniature electronic switch capable of monitoring the home positions of linear actuators.

      • The Haydon™ line of dual motion actuators provides independent linear and rotary motion from a compact package. The actuators are based on unique, patent pending designs and incorporate Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions proven motor technology.

      • Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions takes pride in the ability to customize linear motion systems for just about any application. The linear actuator and lead screw assemblies pictured are just a few examples of the thousands of unique systems designed and manufactured.

      • All Haydon™ motors are available with a specifically designed encoder for applications that require feedback. The compact optical incremental encoder design is available with two channel quadrature TTL squarewave outputs. An optional index is also available as a 3rd channel.

    • KERK® LEAD SCREW ASSEMBLIES are modified acme thread forms optimized for performance and available in a broad range of lead screw diameters, leads, and nut styles, custom designed for your application. Kerk lead screws are self-adjusting, maintenance-free and require no lubrication.

              • Chopper Drives

              • A chopper drive allows a stepper motor to maintain greater torque or force at higher speeds than with an L/R drive. The chopper drive is a constant current drive and is almost always the bipolar type.

          • Hyadon Kerk's rotary motors are built to provide exceptionally high torque to size ratios. By utilizing a patented enlarged rotor with low inductance coils, the motors provide superior torque and continuous, reliable high performance. At rated voltage, the 46 mm motor produces 16 oz.-in. of holding torque, the 36 mm motor produces 4.5 oz.-in., the 26 mm motor produces 1.8 oz.-in. and the 20 mm motor produces 0.65 oz.-in. Optional rare earth magnets may be specified for even higher torque. Bronze sleeve bearings are standard, ball bearings are also available.

            Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions has patented technology and the facilities to produce these motors in high volume. We provide rapid turn-around for prototypes and production orders. Custom designs and special engineering requirements such as special shaft diameters, lengths and mounting flanges are welcome.
