The Linear Units and Guides that we can offer are available in a range of styles and sizes and have unique features which are produced to industry standard dimensions.
Many of our Linear Units and Guides are from our supplier Thomson Linear. These can be broken down into ball screw driven units or belt driven units, these can then be either ball guided or slide guided.
A screw driven unit offers high thrust and stiffness. These are based on anything from a low cost lead screw with a preloaded nut to a state of the art high precision ball ground screw and everything in between.
A belt driven linear unit are the best choice for applications where both acceleration and speed are the most important criteria. The Belt driven linear units we can offer use a wide range of different belts so we will find something to suit your application.
Ball screw driven – ball guided units; These units have been design for high thrust applications with high play loads and offer precision and stiffness. They offer a high force and excellent repeatability down to 0.0005mm.
Ball screw driven - slide guided ; These are lower cost units which can still be used for high thrust applications. They are well suited to demanding environments and have durable guide systems. Many of these units offer wash-down protection.
Belt driven ball - guided units; These linear units are smooth running making them well suited to high speed and acceleration applications which require a long lifetime. They can offer speed up to 5m/s and acceleration up to 40 m/s².
Belt driven slide - guided units ; Belt driven slide guided linear units are for applications which require smooth travel at high speeds with high acceleration. These units are low maintenance, cost efficient and chemically protected versions are available.
Our linear units are suitable for a range of applications; they have the following advantages;
Linear Units can be used in many industries and for many applications, for example;
