Equipment builders often struggle with binding issues during the installation and alignment of linear guides when assembling parallel configurations. Extra care and precision in the preparation of mounting structures and mounting surfaces is required to prevent binding during assembly. Additional attention can result in schedule delays and cost overruns when unexpected problems occur.
Guide wheel based linear bearings with crowned running surface are designed to accommodate misalignment in parallel configurations of the linear guide rails and can be quickly assembled onto less accurately prepared mounting structures without binding. Several mounting orientations are possible and new product additions provide flexibility for a variety of equipment applications. This webinar is a design guide to eliminate binding in linear bearings.
By attending this webinar, you will learn:
- About linear components that are designed to compensate for installation misalignment in parallel rail installations
- Design recommendations, orientations, and configurations to properly assemble linear guides across wide installation spans
- How to reduce frustration, assembly time and linear rail alignment time
