Item Linear Motion Systems
MBS can provide a range of solutions for your linear motion needs. Below is
a summary of some of the available linear slide options. If you would like us to quote
for an assembly, or would like to discuss your requirements in more detail,
please contact us
. If you would
like more information about the component pieces, please refer to the Item
and look at the Dynamic Elements section.
KLE Linear Units
Based on Item's Roller Guide technology, these belt-driven
Compact Linear Units
utilise AT type timing belts for increased accuracy and are internally
guided, so finger-traps have been eliminated. Available in 80x80mm or
60x60mm cross-sections, they are particularly suited where long
stroke-lengths are required.
Item Roller Guides are designed with simplicity and time saving in mind.
Comprising hardened ground steel shafts inserted into a special clamping
profile, which is itself mounted to any Item extrusion. Bearing assemblies
are combined with extruded carriage plates, allowing the user to make full
use of the system grooves for attaching additional components. It is
possible to build the linear slide into any Item framework. Any length can
be accommodated and there are a range of sizes available, making these
guides ideal for most dynamic applications, particularly where high speed is
a requirement. They are also well protected against dust or dirt ingress,
and are very smooth running due to the use of double deep-groove ball
bearings inside the V-Rollers, and point contact between V-Rollers and
shafts. Corrosion-resistant and stainless-steel options are also available.
C-rail Slide Systems
designed as compact units and are perfect for sliding and lifting doors, and
for moveable guards. Available in a range of sizes, there are different
bearing types to suit your application. System grooves are available for
attaching other components.
Available in different sizes, these high load bearing
linear guide rails
are particularly suitable where there are high moments involved. They
incorporate unique Item clamping mechanisms to ensure rapid assembly to Item
Ball Bush Guides
Available as either complete guides with ball bushes concealed within the
profile, or as separate ball bush blocks, these economical Item units are
very useful where high precision is not required. Available in different
sizes, the position of the bushes can be adjusted to suit loading
Item have a range of belt drive options. Perfect for high speed and long
stroke lengths, there is a selection for most load requirements. A range of
motor couplings and robust bevel gearboxes is also available.
Rack and Pinion Drives
rack and pinion drive system
fits compactly into the groove of any line
8 aluminium extrusion and offers high accuracy along with rapid assembly
Where very accurate positioning is required, Item ballscrew drives of
different pitches are available. Built around a special 80x80 extrusion, the
incorporated system grooves allow linear guides or roller guides to be
attached directly to the ballscrew.
Item chain drives are suitable in dirty environments where a lower level of
precision is required. The chain is completely enclosed within the profile
grooves, reducing the risk of accidental contact.
