RAIL width on the new 'igus' DryLin sliding guide NK-02-40, available from Treotham Trading , has been adapted to known standard design profiles.
The '40' in the article number represents the rail width in millimetres and provides a flush fit. Position of the drilled holes enables simple groove attachment to standard type aluminium files.
Application range of this guide is very broad. In addition to simple manual and format adjustments, many other tasks are already being solved by the unit in the materials handling sector.
Unlimited acceleration option at low loads can be used to considerably increase cycle times in the packing industry or in work piece feeding systems.
The product has a low overall height and weighs very little because it is constructed from aluminium and plastic. Solid lubricants impregnated in the plastic make additional lubricants unnecessary and eliminate maintenance.
Dry running allows it to be insensitive to dust and dirt. The rail is made of anodised aluminium and the sliding carriage made of blue chromated zinc to also resist corrosion.
Even at very high speeds and extreme acceleration rates the unit runs quietly. An important contribution to this effect is provided by the very wear-resistant, replaceable sliding elements made of iglidur J, which stands out due to its low friction values and excellent abrasion resistance.
As a counter-running partner, anodised aluminium contributes further toward achieving very minimum wear. Another positive gain is the minimum stick-slip tendency which is especially important in the case of minimum stresses and very slow feed motions.
'igus' customers can utilise the free-of-charge service life calculation of their specific application. Through the igus distributor, Treotham Trading, the user receives information on wear behaviour, required driving force, service life and a general function check of the application.
