LinMot F and E-Guides are moving stator applications with tubular linear motors. The mechanical design is based on a special aluminium profile on which up to two high-precision profile rail guides are attached. Use of ball bearings in the carriages guarantee a reliable and smooth operation, support of external forces, torques and bending moments. These products offer high guidance accuracy, facilitate dynamic and precise positioning of load. The guides can be mounted together into a gantry or semi gantry designs without any additional adapters. It is also possible to run multiple stators on the same guide. Direct mechanical compatibility with other LinMot guides for the vertical axis, linear rotary motors and other products, combined with the wide range of stroke availabilities for all axes, the moving stator guides offer a powerful toolbox for any automation task.
Guides with lower friction designed for normal loads with lower static and dynamic load ratings, where static and dynamic moments are admissble.
Guides designed for heavier loads and “long” loads. Two parallel carriage rails and carriages eliminate torsional vibrations. A heavy duty version of the E guides with 4 carriages on 2 rails provides even more mechanical stiffness.
The Moving Stator Guides offer a wide variety of applications and design possibilities. The user can easily implement applications like, Pick & Place, Pick, Rotate & Place, Multiple Stator and Gantry Configuration.
Use of ball bearings in the carriages guarantee a reliable and smooth operation, support of external forces, torques and bending moments.
The guides are designed to be mechanically compatible with each other and a high range of LinMot products. This allows compact multi axis designs from a single supplier for immediate use in applications, without requiring to self-develop additional components.
When more than one axis is required, multiple guides can be easily assembled into gantry or semi-gantry designs. Master-slave setting of stators on one programmable axis simplifies control. With combinations of available strokes, a wide working area can be reached.
Next to the LinMot Linear Stator’s own integrated position sensors, both incremental and absolute external encoders are available as an option. Together with a magnetic band, the external sensors provide a high-resolution linear measurement system.
