Actuators compatible with profile system

Actuators compatible with profile system MiniTec UK has launched a new range of linear positioning actuators based on and completely compatible with its ProfileSystem range of machine framing and building components. The precision ballscrew driven Linearmodul LMS provides up to 1400mm of travel and is housed in a 90x90mm extruded aluminium profile with standard

T-slots on 45 mm centres that utilise MiniTec's wide range of interfacing and interconnection components. The lateral slots also provide a fixing point for datum sensors and limit switches and the modular design includes a stainless steel barrier strip and cover arrangement that seals and protects the internal moving parts of the actuator.

Aimed at applications where accuracy, durability and minimum installation space are important selection criteria, the LMS will suit large area gantry, pick and place and robotic handling systems - as part of a complete MiniTec machine frame system - or as separate components, complete with MiniTec supplied motors, drives and motion controls.

The LMS is delivered as standard with lubricated-for-life dual linear rail ball bearings with matched carriages that support loads in all directions for speeds of up to 1.6 metres per second with the 16mm diameter by 16mm pitch ballscrew option. Other ballscrew pitch options include 4, 5 and 10mm variants, and a T7 accuracy grade option features a preloaded nut system for 0.04mm axial play and repeatability to 52 microns per 300mm. An acme screw version is also available, with a further choice of a preloaded nut arrangement for increased precision.

The flexibility built into the range also extends to the choice of bearing system. The standard bearing system may be replaced with dual heavy-duty recirculating linear rail guides with four carriages, rated at a 10,000km service life. Alternatively, a novel low-friction plastic bushing version can be supplied for an extremely economical positioning solution.
