Serapid's Linearbeam Proves its Versatility
The newest product from Serapid, the LinearBeam, continuously proves its versatility across many different industries and in a variety of applications.
The LinearBeam functions as a rodless linear actuator, but the similarities between the LinearBeam and other rodless actuators ends there.
Serapid's LinearBeam can withstand the harshest and most demanding operating conditions while extending forces able to move mountains (literally)! Two -hundred ton loads are not unusual for this linear actuator. Furthermore, the Serapid LinearBeam can extend to virtually any stroke length without limitation.
Recently, the LinearBeam was included in a quick die change system Serapid custom-engineered for a large tool and die comapny in Van Buren Township, Michigan. The Two-Position Rail Mounted Die Cart will be used on the company's 1000 ton press.
The LinearBeam will provide smooth motion to guide the cart carrying dies weighing up to 50,000 pounds over the rails. The cart will travel approximately 60 feet, and is driven by a gear motor traveling at a speed of about 10 feet per minute.
In addition to its most recent use, the LinearBeam has been used in the nuclear industry to transport nuclear waste approximately 100 feet. For a recent theatre project, it glided a 200-ton orchestra across a stage. Additional applications include steel mill transfer, off-shore skid movement, high temperature units and furnace loading.
When presented with a motion problem that is difficult to solve, regardless of the environment, turn to Serapid's expert staff to engineer a solution suited to your exact application requirements.
