Linear motion guide bearing for assembly systems

Heason Technology 's range of precision positioning components has been augmented by the introduction of the 400-Series ball profile linear guide bearing system, which has recently been launched by its distribution partner, Thomson.

Aimed at cost-sensitive applications across industrial automation, including pick and place, materials handling, packaging equipment and transport technology, the guide is a drop-in replacement for competitive brands with industry standard fixing dimensions and a symmetrical 45 degree rail profile for equal load carrying capacity in all directions and improved tolerance for mounting surface inaccuracies.

The range covers six nominal rail widths from 15 mm to 45 mm in stock lengths of 4000 mm and a wide choice of carriage styles including narrow and extra-long variants to match application requirements. With individual carriage load capacity between 9 kN and 130 kN and a choice of two accuracy and two preload grades for precision and load matching, notable features for the 400-series include a polymer lined ball-return tube that reduces noise and vibration, and individual ball track lubricant channels that maximise lubrication effectiveness.

Heason Technology says that the range also benefits from a very wide selection of options and accessories to optimise the performance and costs of the installed bearing system.

These include a carriage with caged ball-spacing retainer option for increased running smoothness and lower noise at high speeds, as well as a standard non-caged version for general purpose use.
