Motion Control -What To Consider When Specifying A Linear Slide

Motion Control – Tutorial

Considerations when specifying a linear slide for a new or existing application.

By Mike Quinn • LM76

When a design engineer has fully defined a linear-motion application’s requirements regarding travel length, speed, force, and accuracy as well as repeatability, the next question to answer is this:

Does an off-the-shelf linear slide (or a stock linear slide from a catalog) fully satisfy the application?

motion control - linear motion products

Off-the-shelf linear slides are advantageous for their quick delivery and lower cost than that of custom components. No wonder most linear-motion designs do in fact employ off-the-shelf linear slides from various component and system suppliers.

Lintech’s 100 Series Positioning Tables set the standard for high performance and value. 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components —

Acme Screw or Ball Screw Driven Linear Motion:

The Lintech 100 series linear positioning slides are designed to maximize performance while minimizing physical size and cost. These linear slides use a low friction, preloaded, recirculating linear ball bearing system, which ride on precision ground linear square rail guide. The linear profile rails are mounted to a precision machined aluminum base, which offers a rigid support over the entire travel of the table’s carriage. The load is mounted to a precision machined aluminum carriage, which has threaded stainless steel inserts for high strength and wear life.

There are 30 different acme & ball screw options, that offer high efficiencies and long life at an economical price. These linear positioning tables are designed to allow for numerous options. They include EOT & Home switches, linear & rotary encoders, power-off electric brakes, motor wrap packages and versatile mounting brackets for multiple axis applications.

Single or Multi-Axis Configurations:

Lintech has the ability to build any of its standard positioning systems in single or multi-axis, using pre-engineered mounting brackets. Mix and match different axes for a customized linear robotics solution.
