LINEAR UNITS - BACKFLASH-FREE AND NO-WEAR COUPLINGS BY R+W IN LINEAR UNITS
Whether it is a stepper motor or servo drive, the requirements for linear units with regard to speed and precision are constantly growing. The reason for this are the shorter cycle times for efficient optimization of processes. As a result, acceleration times and travel speeds are being constantly improved. In the case of errors in the alignment of individual guides, these dynamics lead to an increase in the loads on bearings while at the same time precision is reduced.
The backlash-free and non-wearing couplings by R+W can help in this case. Synchronization of two parallel linear units is achieved using a maintenance-free intermediate axle. For direct connection with the servo motor, it is possible to choose from torsion-resistant or vibration-damping couplings, depending on the application requirements.
