Treotham Automation has introduced a new restricted space linear guide system capable of achieving a minimum linear axis installation height of only 20mm and an installation width of only 45mm, thanks to the innovative lateral positioning of the spindle in the drylin linear axis (SLT-BB) system.
Weighing only 0.15kg with a manual or motor drive both being possible, the compactly designed system offers a maximum rotational speed of 1,000 rpm and a maximum linear speed of 1.5 m/min for fast as well as effortless and smooth movement.
The ball-bearing spindle is available with trapezoidal or steep thread and the bearing clearance can be adjusted seamlessly using the drylin T-miniature slide TWE-04-12.
The high capacity, compact design size and lubricant-free operation of the drylin linear axis SLT-BB makes it suitable for automation applications in beverage and food machinery including vending machines.
Since all the bearing spots of the drylin products manage without lubricant and are characterised by excellent wear-resistance, they are suitable for use in many soiling-sensitive applications such as those in the food industry. Their maintenance-free operation also guarantees significantly lower operating costs.
