Linear Motion Systems
Our product philosophy is focused towards providing modular solutions for technically demanding manufacturing applications while maintaining high standards of rigidity, functionality and flexibility. The add-on principle allows for the easy integration of linear motion systems and modules with our structural aluminum framing system.
Timing belt driven linear modules (LZR) are designed to be motor driven, and provide repeatable back and forth movement.Learn More
mk linear positioning modules (series VST) are designed to solve adjustment and positioning tasks.Learn More

Common Applications for Linear Motion Systems
While linear motion systems like the LZR and VST are useful in a wide variety of industrial applications, they are particularly common with machine tooling and electronics and semiconductor manufacturing. This is due to their ability to provide fast and precise positioning, as well as steady, reliable axis traversing.
LZR & VST Modules
Two of mk North America’s standard linear motion modules are the LZR and VST systems.
Made with linear motion rails and slides, mk North America’s LZR modules are timing belt-driven units consisting of a simple track profile, carriage wagon, and drive components. With the LZR, positional accuracy is possible up to approximately 0.2 millimeters.
The VST linear positioning module is specially designed for applications with demanding adjustment and positioning requirements. Features include trapezoidal spindles, POM-nuts, and a high-quality surface coating to reduce friction.
