Engineering Development Center offers customers the ability to order online
from a standard listing of prototype parts available for 24-hour shipment. The
online ordering system allows an engineer to quickly obtain off-the-shelf
linear motion components for concept testing while evaluating their needs for
an application-specific customized linear motion solution. It offers quick
turnaround for off-the-shelf and customized prototypes. Parts ordered through
the online system are available for same day shipment while customized parts can
be available in a matter of days. Hybrid and canstack linear actuators,
precision lead screw assemblies, RGS and LRS linear rail systems, ScrewRail
linear actuators, and drives are all available. Applications for linear motion
products span a variety of high-tech industries including medical instruments,
life science research equipment, laboratory instrumentation, semiconductor
manufacturing, optics and laser equipment, and military/aerospace applications.
