Automation guide rails

Article-Automation guide rails

If you want to keep products running straight and true through your cell?s automated assembly systems, SKF USA Inc. (Bethlehem, PA) suggests using its SKF profile rail guides. They?re engineered to provide precise positioning, smooth operation, high load-carrying capacity, high stiffness, unlimited stroke, and low-noise operation. They also incorporate the company?s prelubricated reservoirs?standard in all carriages?to optimize rail lubrication for reliability and longevity. Their guides feature a profile rail with four precision-ground raceways and a slide unit with four ball circulation paths.

The Gothic arch configuration of the raceways provides enough rigidity to accommodate equal load capacity in all directions. And the two-point contact of rolling elements with the raceways promotes high operational speeds with minimal noise and a low coefficient of friction for smooth-running performance. The guides are available in several sizes, and with various slide configurations and lengths to satisfy application requirements. Ready-to-mount, the units simplify installation and minimize adjustment requirements, and they can be customized to satisfy specific application needs.?CK
