R. A. Rodriguez is introducing the compact TMT Power-Line linear guideway T100 and says it is extremely easy to assemble. By simply fitting a motor, the guideway is made ready to move light loads with high acceleration and speed. The self-supporting structure of the rail and its factory-applied M6 mounting holes enable quick, easy and economic installation.
This belt-driven, design features four lubricated wheels and can accommodate direct loads of up to 400N and side loads of 1080N. Maximum stroke from the single-piece construction is up to 7000mm. It is suitable for speeds up to 4.5m/s and typical positioning accuracy is +/-0.1mm. The concentric bearing arrangement provides for easy adjustment of preload.
Virtually silent in operation, this new addition to the RA Rodriguez linear motion range is also maintenance-free. The motor or geared motor can be mounted directly to the guideway or via a coupling.
The Power-Line linear guideway T100 is manufactured by TMT, a company that specialises in the design and manufacture of robust rail profiles for automotive lift-and-carry transfer lines. Its Speedy Rail system is said to be widely used by the world's leading car manufacturers.
