Low Cost, "Roll-Slide Mini"(TM) Carriage and Rail Linear Motion Systems

E. Longmeadow, MA – Low cost, "Roll-Slide Mini"™ carriage and rail linear motion systems are  available from LM76 in lengths from 160 mm (6.30 in.) to 1200 mm.  Travel is from 88 mm (3.46 in.) to 1128 mm (44.41 in.)  These low profile linear motion systems are just 12 mm (0.47 in.) high and feature: Quiet running, low resonance, smooth motion, low friction 440c stainless steel roller bearings (Coeff of Friction is .001 to .010 compared with .15 to .30 for polymer plain bearings), low magnetic signature, corrosion resistant stainless steel rails and, electrodeless nickel plated carriages.

For easy integration into an application, the "Roll-Slide Mini"™ carriage and rail linear motion systems have evenly spaced mounting holes in the rails, and the carriage has four drilled and tapped mounting holes.  Maximum dynamic load is 80 N (45 lbs) for a single carriage, and the temperature range is -100 to 500 C (-50 O to 1400 F).  Applications can include: Camera sliders, sensor carriers, medical, bio-pharmaceuticals, food, defense/ aerospace, and manual adjustment mechanisms.  As an option the carriage is available with a stainless steel, plastic tipped friction knurled hand stop, and the rails are supplied with end stops. Carriage and rail systems can be ordered with zero clearance for maximum precision.

LM76 manufacturers and distributes 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 self-lubricating (PTFE) 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.

Founded in 1976, LM76 has been a leading designer/manufacturer of linear bearings, slides and linear motion systems.  LM76 is renowned for its industry leading Minuteman self-lubricating (PTFE) linear bearings.  LM76 is a leading supplier of precision linear shafting: RC60, 300 Series Stainless Steel, and ceramic coated aluminum shafting.  LM76 also offers several FDA/USDA compliant linear bearings and slides for the food processing, pharmaceutical, medical, and packaging industries.
