Vadnais Heights, MN—June 18, 2012—Nexen Group, Inc. announces it will be showcasing its innovative motion control products at the 2012 International Manufacturing Technology Show, taking place September 10th through the 15th at McCormick Place in Chicago. IMTS is one of the world’s largest industrial trade shows where manufacturing industry professionals can preview new machine tools, controls, computers, software, components and systems designed to improve process efficiency. This year, Nexen will be offering visitors an in-depth look at its latest Roller Pinion System (RPS) models, Precision Ring Drive (PRD) and will provide a preview of its new, first-of-its-kind technology.
Specifically engineered to meet diverse and demanding motion control challenges, Nexen’s RPS features a unique roller pinion/toothed rack combination that delivers high-accuracy positioning with zero backlash and virtually eliminates cumulative error. Constantly evolving in order to provide the widest range of high-quality motion control solutions, the RPS is offered in five distinct models, each 99 percent efficient, with low friction and minimal maintenance requirements.
For indexing and rotary positioning applications, Nexen’s PRD contains a roller pinion system that is 99 percent efficient and a gearbox that performs at a 96 percent efficiency rating for smooth, precise motion. Reaching speeds of 300 rpm and lasting for up to 60,000,000 revolutions, the PRD combines power, rigidity and durability to satisfy current industry demands for higher performance capacity at lower energy costs.
Nexen will be located at Booth E-4306, where visitors can view a new, live demonstration of these products in action and learn how Nexen’s motion control technology can significantly improve application precision, reliability and efficiency.
