FXRG Series Flexible Linear System Overview
FLEXRACE FXRG is a very flexible linear system with unique assembly possibilities which provides an extremely versatile linear system, with a great variety of rail/roller configurations for a wide range of applications. FLEXRACE is designed to be a strong and simple multitask linear system for larger handling and automation applications. It is a low-cost, easy to assemble system that offers smooth motion even on inaccurate surfaces.
High Quality Black Hardening Treatment Anti-Corrosion Technology
FXRG Rail Design
The rail is made from special high strength carbon steel alloy to assure a good nitride hardening with our T RACE-NOX treatment. An innovative hardening technology applied to the linear rail products are able to increase the hardness on the surface and in depth, enough to guarantee to support the typical Hertz's stress in the point of contact with the rollers, and to grant a strong resistance against corrosion, reduce the friction and resulting wear, and enable a long service life of the rail. After nitride hardening the rails are processed with an oxidation treatment and subsequently a hot-oil impregnation to assure a nice black color and a high corrosion resistance. Mounting holes are located at 160mm spacing.
Rail lengths up to 2500mm long are able to ship via UPS and can be processed through the BWC online store. Longer lengths, up to 4.0 meters long can be process by our customer service department with other arranged trucking services.
The correct lubrication of rails and rollers is very important to assure long life of the products. In the case of high frequency applications it is suggested to clean the raceways and rollers and re-lubricate approximately every 100,000 cycles under normal operating conditions. We suggest using grease for high precision applications of type NLGI2 (ISO2137).
The FXRG rail allows for many different rail mounting configurations to support moment loads with 2 or more parallel rails. Simply attach the rails to plan or tubular supports to create the guideway and attach the rollers to carriers for running on the rails. With the unique triple raceways, very compact and space saving linear solutions can be obtained. The below illustrated configurations are examples of customized assembly solutions. These solutions can also be made locally by the end user from the components of FXRG rails and rollers. If requested BWC can assist with engineering calculations to assure the correct dimensions to accommodate specific load and moment capacities. The main advantage is that linear guide solutions with very high Mx moment load capacities can be easily designed and assembled.
What is T RACE FXRG Series?
T RACE FXRG Series is a flexible linear system, and no that doesn’t mean the rail is bendy. When we say flexible we mean that the series is extremely versatile allowing for greater control of rail and roller configurations.
What does the “G” in FXRG stand for?
The “G” in FXRG stands for Gothic, which is the unique and innovative shape of the rail. This multi-surface concave shape is designed to offer the smoothest motion even on inaccurate surfaces.
Are there any special materials or processes that go into making FXRG rails?
There are! Like the rest of the T RACE product lines, FXRG is made from a special carbon steel alloy and features the exclusive T RACE-NOX nitride hardening treatment.
What kind of roller options can I get with FXRG?
Several! FXRG rails work hand in hand with the R.V guiding roller, the R.P floating roller and the R.F free floating roller. It all comes down to what you want for your application.
Can I use different size rollers on the same FXRG rail?
Yes, FXRG rail is capable of being used with R. rollers sized at 18, 28, 43 and 63!
Do FXRG rails or rollers need any sort of maintenance?
A little bit. In order to ensure long life of the products it is suggested, for high frequency applications, to clean raceways and rollers as well as re-lubricate approximately every 100,000 cycles (in normal operation conditions).
Is there a specific grease that I should use to re-lubricate?
As long as your reaching for grease meant for high precision, preferably in the ISO2137 class, you are in the clear.
Are there any applications that FXRG works especially well in?
FLEXRACE, as a product line, was designed to be a low-cost and easy to assemble system. FXRG Series is an ideal motion solution for larger handling and automation applications!
