Three aluminum carriage lengths are available to meet size needs as well as moment loading conditions. Carriage units come assembled or as a kit for on-site assembly with your choice of lubricators. Two types of stainless steel V bearings allow for a choice between highly compliant twin and double row linear motion bearings for higher load demanding applications.
Stainless Steel Roller Bearing Assemblies
Stainless steel twin roller bearing type is a two piece deep groove ball bearing, which provides the most compliance and tolerates the highest amount of misalignment. Stainless double row roller bearing type utilizes a one piece bearing design with a double row ball configuration for higher load capacity and rigidity. Nitrile seals are standard for stainless steel twin and double row linear motion bearings to provide greater protection from liquid and small particle debris. Through-hole and blind hole mounting type configurations are also available in two lengths to handle different carriage thicknesses.
Stainless Steel Spacer and Flat Slides
Slides are made of stainless steel AISI 420 series and are ground to a N5 rating. V slides are available in the following configurations: •
- Double edge spacer slide
- Double edge flat slide
Mounting holes are available as counterbores or through-bores. Dowel pins can be used to more accurately align track during installation.
Flange clamps allow for mounting of stainless steel slides at the ends. Aluminum alloy is used to make the flange clamps, which are then coated with an anti-corrosive coating. The anti-corrosive coating is approved by the US Department of Agriculture.
Cap Seals and Lubricators
Cap seals and lubricators allow for optimal performance of systems by properly lubricating the interface between the V slide and V bearing. Both cap seals and lubricators provide a grease reservoir for continuous lubrication during system life.
Aluminum Carriage Plates
Aluminum carriages come in three standard lengths. Carriages are coated with an anti-corrosive coating, which is approved by the US Department of Agriculture. Hole patterns on standard carriages readily accommodate cap seals and lubricators. Custom carriages can also be made from customer specified materials such as stainless steel.
