The Reliance Cool Motion Stage (RCMS) combines the high speeds, linear accuracy and reliability of a screw driven linear slide with the intelligence of the Reliance Cool Muscle Motor with rail lengths up to 1m.
High performance proprietary polymers and TFE coatings extend the life of the moving parts.
Constructed with a precision aluminium guide and carriage and driven by a precision rolled stainless steel leadscrew.
The Reliance Linear Rail Actuators combine linear accuracy and reliability of a screw driven linear slide with a robust lightweight aluminium rail, giving high axial end to end stability and precise motion system accuracy.
Ideally suited to low speed and shorter strokes than the RCMS, the Reliance Linear Rail Actuators provide modest load carrying capacity in pitch, roll and yaw.
Reliance has a range of X, Y, Z and rotary motorised stages which can be easily adapted to provide various linear and rotary movements.
Easily adapted to suit the Reliance Cool Muscle Motor these stages can provide a reliable and complete solution.
Please enquire for details of these stages as the number of possible variations are high. We cannot show all the variants on this website.

Reliance Linear Slides are designed around standard products and therefore provide reliable movement in the smallest possible space envelope, for example the Reliance Cool Motion Stage Size 17 is available with lengths of 1m and a width of only 51mm. Also the direct drive without coupling on the Linear Rail Actuator provides the shortest possible inline length.
Coupled with a Reliance Cool Muscle motor, Motorised Stages can use the integrated controller and high resolution magnetic encoder to provide a full closed loop position system. For more information see the Reliance Cool Muscle. Please note Linear Rail Actuators do not include this option.
Reliance Cool Motion Stage provides the highest speed with a maximum of 1270mm/s on P/No: RCMS17L-1000.
All Reliance Motorised Stages are either lubricated for life or designed with proprietary polymers and coatings to provide lubrication free actuation. Additional lubricants should not be applied.
Using a Reliance Cool Muscle Motor set to 50,000 pulses per revolution the following resolutions can be achieved:
RCMS P/No: RCMS17L-M02 may achieve 0.00004mm/step
Miniature Actuator P/No: RCMRPA may achieve 0.00008mm/step
Reliance Motorised Stages are low backlash as standard. For example a typical RCMS accuracy is shown below:
Reliance Motorised Stages utilising the Reliance Cool Muscle motors, allow multiple units to work in sequence, either to produce circles, ellipses or complex arc motions in a daisy chain network such as 'pick and place' machines. These stages can be safely operated entirely on their own or communicate via RS232, RS484, Ethernet, ModBus, CanOpen or Profibus driving from their own memory banks or dynamically from a PC or HMI.For simpler applications the Racktuator is easily integrated with a standard stepper motor drive being driven either step and direct or with CW/CCW pulses.
Reliance Motorised Stages are a simple cost effective method of providing linear motion in many different applications.
These range from scientific research, medical pick and place, semi-con positioning, factory automation to packaging machinery.
