HaydonKerk Motion Solutions, a premier manufacturer of linear motion products, has launched a new Web-site that reflects the joining of two world-class brands in the field of linear motion: Haydon and Kerk.

Visitors to www.haydonkerk.com can find a full range of information about HaydonKerk linear motion products, including leadscrews and nuts; stepper motor linear actuators; drives; linear rails, guides and splines; and Haydon switch and instrument sealed switches. What’s more, visitors can also access useful technical advice on subjects such as Selecting the Proper Motor, Stepper Motor Theory and Drive Definitions.

Waterbury, CT-based Haydon Enterprises, a Harbour Group company, acquired Kerk Motion Products, Inc. in May 2008.  For nearly 50 years, Haydon has been known for building electric motors and stepper motor based linear actuators. Since 1976, Kerk’s internationally patented, anti-backlash designs and materials have provided high accuracy, unsurpassed repeatability, and long life in a full range of motion-control applications. 

Together, the two companies now offer a broad range of precision linear motion products. Recognized as a leading manufacturer of precision leadscrew and anti-backlash nut assemblies, stepper motor based linear actuators, and linear rail and guide systems, HaydonKerk Motion Solutions offers high performance in demanding applications such as laboratory automation, medical instrumentation, semiconductor fabrication, military, aerospace, and industrial applications.
