LM76 is the Exclusive North American Distributor of a new high speed integrated bearing and drive system featuring +/- 5-micron repeatability, and zero backlash. This new X-Axis BE125-10 Open Screw Drive System sets new standards for length of travel, speed, and precision for Cartesian Robots (robots that move in X, Y, and Z axes according to Cartesian Coordinates also know as rectangular coordinates) and single-axis linear stages!
The new X-Axis BE125-10 Open Screw Drive System is a compact linear stage measuring 125 mm (4.921-in.) wide x 86 mm (3.386-in.) high x 4391 mm (172.874-in.) long and can handle dynamic loads to 500 kg (1102 lbs). The standard stroke length is 4000 mm (157.480-in.) and custom stroke lengths to 10 m (32.8-ft) can be specified.
This new drive system consists of a precision-ground open screw and two pre-loaded radial ball bearings additionally the open screw drive system is supported by bearings spaced every 250 mm that prevent screws as long as 10 m from whipping even at 5000 rpms. This is in contrast to a closed screw system (ball screw and nut) which are more limited as to length of travel and rpms.
The guide system consists of two parallel shafts and 8 preloaded radial bearings. In addition to smooth motion, low vibration, low noise (<68db at 3000 rpm), and minimal heat generation the BE125-10 Open Screw Drive System is capable of travel speed up to 1.7 m/sec (5.5 ft/sec). and pitch and yaw accuracy over 4000 mm (157.480-in.) of travel is just +/- 0.02 mm (0.00079-in.).
Get the high precision X Axis BE125-10 Open Screw Drive System for higher throughput, and guaranteed longer life in: Pick-and-place, sorting, packaging, assembly, machining, and testing applications. This complete linear stage and drive system is easily integrated in new and existing applications.
LM76 also 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 system 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.
