Linear positioning actuators offer complete automation flexibility

MiniTec UK has launched a new range of linear positioning actuators based on its ProfileSystem range of machine framing and building components.

The precision ballscrew driven Linearmodul LMS provides up to 1400mm of travel and is housed in a 90 x 90mm extruded aluminium profile with standard T-slots on 45mm centres, which utilise MiniTec's range of interfacing and interconnection components.

The lateral slots also provide a fixing point for datum sensors and limit switches and the modular design includes a stainless steel barrier strip and cover arrangement that seals and protects the internal moving parts of the actuator.

Aimed at applications where accuracy, durability and minimum installation space are important selection criteria, MiniTec says the LMS will suit large area gantry, pick and place and robotic handling systems. It is delivered as standard with lubricated-for-life dual linear rail ball bearings with matched carriages that support loads in all directions for speeds of up to 1.6m per second with the 16 x 16mm pitch ballscrew option.

Other ballscrew pitch options include 4, 5 and 10mm variants, and a T7 accuracy grade option features a preloaded nut system for 0.04mm axial play and repeatability to 52 microns per 300mm. An acme screw version is also available, with a further choice of a preloaded nut arrangement for increased precision.
