FDA/USDA and 3A-Dairy Compliance Brochure features Linear Motion Components from LM76!

Linear Motion Control  - LM76 FDA/USDA/3A-Dairy compliance Brochure!

E. Longmeadow, MA -- Motion Control Components - Linear Motion – Food processing and beverage plants' wash down areas are unique environments that undergo harsh treatment from high pressure washers, steam, and a multitude of caustic chemicals used in the cleaning and sanitizing production equipment. OEMs and maintenance departments need to select components that will not trap contaminating debris and can be thoroughly evacuated following Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOPs). SSOPs are detailed schedules and procedures specifying what to clean, how to clean, how often to clean, and the record keeping used for monitoring.

A helpful component selection guide from LM76, "Linear Bearings, 6 Simple Steps - FDA Compliance, Wash Down Compliance," details the linear motion components available from LM76 that are FDA/UDSA/3A-Dairy compliant.

White Paper - Life Expectancy for Single vs. Double Nuts by Steinmeyer!

Motion Control Components - Steinmeyer Single and Double Nuts

Life expectancy equations provided by some manufacturers only cover nuts having two-point contact. But what about four-point nuts? And what about the effects of preload?

BURLINGTON, MA --Motion Control Components - The fundamental determining factor of life expectancy is duty cycle, which includes load, thrust, speed, and duration of the travel. Calculating these forces is commonly understood. But preload is a very important factor in ball screw life calculations and must always be considered.  In cases where the applied external load is low, preload can determine as much as 90% of the life.

Steinmeyer engineers have developed a preload graph that consists of two curves: each representing the force-deflection curve of one ball nut in a double nut configuration.
