Ultra-precise linear motion

Ultra-precise linear motion A new range of direct drive, linear air bearing slideways from Loadpoint Bearings provides straightness of motion better than 0.1µm in 100mm of travel, and resolution on position accuracy better than 0.1µm. Developed for use on ultraprecision machine tools, the slideways are also highly suited for applications on test or measuring equipment and on machinery used in clean environments. The direct drive slideways provide a simple, neat and highly effective answer to the requirements for ultraprecise linear motion and positional accuracy. They employ inherently accurate air bearings as machine elements; these units being virtually frictionless at the relatively low surface speeds at which linear slideways are used. In addition, when driven directly by a DC brushless linear motor, the slideways are completely free from the backlash, mechanical noise and hysteresis associated with other types of bearing and drive. These performance advantages are further complemented by wear-free operation and an indefinite operating life, provided that the slideways are kept clean.Loadpoint Bearings is producing the new slideways in a range of sizes up to a maximum overall length of 1.0m.
