MOTION CONTROL: Low cost, linear motion systems from LM76, feature high speed travel to 10 m/sec (32.8 ft.), acceleration to 50 M/sec2 (164 ft/sec2) and high load capability to 5600N (1259 lbs.). Designers can select from five low profile linear motion systems for easy integration into manufacturing and processing equipment, and OEM Products.
Easy to install linear systems such as the SG, OSG and EL300B parallel shaft linear systems are lightweight, feature RC60 shafting, low friction, lubricated and sealed-for-life rollers, and adjustable preload. These low cost, precision dual rail systems can be mounted horizontally, or vertically. SG linear motion systems are available in lengths to 3962 mm (13 ft) seven rail sizes and 21 rolling block sizes and configurations. The OSG systems are available in four rail and rolling block sizes. Felt wipers are an available option. The very stable, wide base EL300B liner motion system is available in lengths to 3000 mm (9.8 ft).
The low profile LRBS (single shaft) & LRBT (twin shaft) linear rail systems offer high speed, high stiffness and adjustable preload. The single and twin shaft rails are predrilled for direct mounting and the rolling blocks have predrilled holes and “T” slots. The Defender Rail also features adjustable preload, is available in lengths to 3120 mm (10.2 ft) in stainless steel or lower cost zinc plated steel.
LM76 manufacturers a broad variety of FDA & USDA compliant bearings and shafting, in inch sizes of .25 inches to 1.5 inches, and a FDA & USDA compliant profile rail and slide systems that can easily be integrated into new and existing applications. The bearing options include: Self-lubricating FDA & USDA compliant Teflon® composite bearings in a 304 stainless steel shell, and lower cost bearings with a ceramic coated shell and FDA & USDA compliant liner. Bearings are available in closed and open configurations, and are drop-in replacements for all inch sized linear ball bearings.
