Linear units offer maximum configuration flexibility

23 November 2010

Rose+Krieger's new generation of RK DuoLine linear units, which are supplied with a spindle or timing belt, offer greater flexibility, thanks to optional coupling and motor adapters, which can be attached to all four hollow shaft outputs on the idler unit. Not only does this simplify positioning, customers can also configure and adjust the axial motor themselves.

The DuoLine with spindle drive is fitted with a new spindle support for increased rotational speeds of up to 2m/s and stroke lengths of approximately 5m. All DuoLine variants are magnetically sealed to provide a protection rating of IP40. The enclosed ball rail system also provides an efficiency rating above 85% on the spindle variant and brings the no-load torque for the timing belt variant down to 2.5Nm.

The variants also share common features in terms of installation options. The BLOCAN profile slots have T-rails with tapped holes to simplify the attachment of loads and provide the greatest possible flexibility. A central lubricator supplies grease to the guide system and spindles (depending on type), minimising maintenance.
