Stainless Steel And Self Aligning Linear Ball Bearings Are Easily Lubricated Right Inside of LM76's "New Design" Pillow And Flange Blocks!

Linear Motion Control  - LM76 New Design Pillow and Flange Blocks!










E. Longmeadow, MA Motion Control Components - Linear Motion - Lubricating Stainless Steel and Self-Aligning Linear Ball Bearings has never been easier! "New Design" pillow blocks and flange blocks from LM76, features a lubrication fitting, and an alignment set screw in the pillow blocks and flange blocks, and the Stainless Steel and self aligning linear bearings are modified by having an alignment flat ground on the bearings' outer shell and drilling a hole through the outer shell. Lubricants can then be pumped directly inside of linear ball bearing races without having to remove the bearing from the shaft. The Pillow and Flange Blocks also have been designed to accommodate an encapsulated ETX Scraper Seals that prevents contaminants from getting inside the bearing and retains the lubricant in the bearing.

Steinmeyer Tutorial - Ball Screws - Maximum Load!

Motion Control Components - Steinmeyer Tutorials







Tutorial presented by Steinmeyer - Their Ball Screws are specially manufactured for dynamic performance




BURLINGTON, MA --Motion Control Tutorial - Ball Screws - Maximum Load

There are five ways a ball screw may fail due to overload:

  • Excessive dynamic loading, which means the screw makes too many revolutions under a certain load resulting in material fatigue. This can be avoided by selecting a ball screw with sufficient dynamic load capacity (or by reducing the number of revolutions and/or reducing the load). This is the subject of the load capacity discussion.
  • Exceeding the static load capacity, which causes instant and permanent damage to the ball screw due to brinelling of balls and races, and prevents any further normal operation of the ball screw. Static load capacities are listed as technical data.

Motion Control - Single Rail Positioning Stage H Gantry from H2W Technologies.

H2W Technologies Single Rail Positioning System






Santa Clarita, CA —-- H2W Technologies’ latest single rail positioning stage H-gantry design is an open frame XY positioning system. It has two bottom parallel axes with one cross axis connecting the two (H-gantry).

Each linear axis uses H2W’s brushless linear motors (BLDM-B04), and each has a total stroke length of 25.67 in [652 mm]; can generate 6.2 lbs [27.8 N] of continuous force and 18.7 lbs [83.3 N] of peak force, or a combined 12.4 lbs [55.6 N] continuous force and 37.4 lbs [166.6 N] of peak force on the bottom axis. The non-contact 1-micron resolution encoders allow for precise positioning. The moving tables are guided by a precision recirculating linear ball bearing system.
