LG Motion launches recirculating units from Schneeberger

09 November 2016

Schneeberger launched a new range of products through LG Motion and adds more depth to the wide range of motion control products available.

A brief description

The units are supplied with either ball or roller bearings and are able to support rigid and compact designs with an unlimited stroke. The standard unit is also combined with Schneeberger linear bearings types R and RD. The components are manufactured from hardened tool steel with aluminium transmission parts as well as plastic wipers and damping elements. Stainless steel versions of the unit are available on request.

Principal benefits

The units deliver a high level of accuracy and rigidity with an unlimited stroke. They may typically be used in both normal environments as well as cleanrooms or in a vacuum. The range of sizes and options are suitable for small to heavy loads and it is also possible to even out minor angular errors with the units.

Ball or roller options

The recirculating units are available in sizes 1 – 12 and come in various lengths. For small to medium loads the ball bearing option types SK and SKD with damping elements is recommended. 

For heavy loads the SR unit with crosswise rollers is recommended and for vacuum and cleanroom applications the SKC with ceramic balls should be used.
