Original Press Release:
New, Linear Guide Systems Move 1200 Lb. Loads At Speeds Of 30 Feet Per-Second!
E. Longmeadow, MA - Two new series of high speed, low cost, compact linear guide systems called, "Speed Guides,TM" have been introduced by LM76. The Speed Demon OSG type and Speed Demon SG type linear guide systems are designed for speeds up to 10 m/sec. (32.8 ft/sec.), accelerations to 50 m/sec.2 and loads up to 5600 N. (1259 lbs.). These quiet, low profile guide systems are ideal for: High speed assembly and sorting operations, pick and place robots, industrial, office, and packaging machines, vacuum applications, and medical equipment (including patient care devices).
The OSG type linear guide systems are available in five rail & block sizes. Each OSG rail features pre drilled mounting holes, dual RC60 steel shafting in lengths up to 4 Meters (13 ft.), and can be ordered cut to size. Each OSG block features 4 dual contact roller bearings with two bearings on eccentric mounts for easy clearance adjustments. Running straightness is just +/- 0.02mm (+/- .0008 in.) regardless of system length.
The SG type linear guide systems are available in seven rail sizes and 19 block designs in seven sizes to fit a wide range of applications. Each SG rail features pre drilled mounting holes, dual RC60 steel shafting in lengths up to 4 Meters (13 ft.), and can be ordered cut to size. SG blocks feature three to five dual contact roller bearings with one, two, or three bearings on eccentric mounts for easy clearance adjustments. Running straightness is just +/- 0.015mm (+/- .0006 in.) regardless of system length.
The OSG and SG type Speed Demon linear guide systems are ideal for use in X, Y or Z axes. Integral felt wipers, high angular dual contact bearings, and corrosion resistant materials permit installation in a broad range of adverse environments. Shafting options include RC60, 440C, and Chrome Plating. For easy integration into a new or existing application CAD drawings are available on the LM76 Website www.lm76.com.
