New adapters for MiniTec’s range of linear axes combine perfectly for multi-axis systems

Written by: Minitec UK Ltd | Published:

A new range of precision adapters from MiniTec allows its complete range of linear positioning slides to be combined easily and economically for flexible and convenient build of multi-axis positioning systems.

Linear axes and modules based on the MiniTec aluminium profile system are demonstrating their reliability in many different applications for more than 25 years. The manufacturer relies on its own production, a comprehensive stock-holding as well as custom-oriented service. The complete range consists of compact leadscrew and belt driven guides from 45 mm square section up to heavy duty 180mm wide units. For high-precision linear axes with optimised installation space, the LMS Linearmodul series includes recirculating ball bearing guides and recirculating ball screws. The key characteristic across the linear positioning system range is the modular concept used throughout; with the same groove size and all components compatible with all sizes of MiniTec's profile system machine framing range allowing complete machine base and automated positioning system build from a single supply source.

MiniTec has extended its modular positioning system with newly developed precision adapters allowing all linear axes to be combined easily and economically to form multi-axis systems. Applications such as material handling, packaging, pick-and-place, material testing, marking or laser machining can be handled flexibly and precisely. The new adapters are suitable for fastening profile system guide rails onto slides as well as slides on slides. With adapters having stop edges and holders, extensive adjustment of the system is not necessary.

All MiniTec linear guides can be delivered as components, ready for installation, or may be supplied as complete assemblies including drive and control units as well as application programming. System design may be carried out by the customer using MiniTec's comprehensive CAD software or MiniTec can provide a complete design and installation service if required.
