R.A. Rodriguez is launching its own miniature linear guideway, known as the BM series. Four sizes complete this range, with overall heights of 8–16mm and carriage widths of 17–32mm; basic dynamic loading capacities range from 850-6450N.
Compact for discrete installation, this caged-ball design has high-precision Gothic arch raceway profiles for long life, low noise and the accommodation of high loads. The high moment load ratings of the guideways make them suitable for single-rail applications. Minimum vibration is assured by the quality of the raceway surface finish; this also contributes to the guideways' long and trouble-free working life, as does the sealed carriage with lubrication nipple.
Available in five precision grades with a choice of five preload specifications, the BM linear guideway series is also available in stainless steel. These products have been proven in Europe in a range of applications, including driven and manual positioning and X-Y combinations.
