Lintech Motor Mounts

August 16, 2016

Lintech provides an option for motor mounts on screw and belt driven tables. When utilizing a motorized table for a screw or belt driven table, obviously you need a connection point between the motor used and the table. There are many different manufacturers and sizes of motors on the market and an intermediate gearhead may also be required. Lintech already has motor mount configuration designs for many motor manufacturers/models. However, when you add a motor mount, and may be a gearhead too, the overall length of the table really starts to grow. So, Lintech also has preconfigured motor “wrap” designs to enable a more compact overall length.

Lintech has a huge variety of table options and accessories to assist the designer with time savings. For more information on Lintech products, contact Lintech.

Lintech Square Rail Linear Guides

August 1, 2016

Lintech has been providing precision linear guides to many companies over the years. These square rails, also referred to as profile rails due to the varying shapes of the rail sides, have a higher load capacity than similar sized precision linear shafting/bushings. They are also more precise and require less physical space.

Lintech’s online ordering process allows for a quick, easy and inexpensive way for obtaining the size and configuration for a given application. When looking for a fast solution for linear guides, contact Lintech.

Industry Changes

July 1, 2016

These days you can buy just about all of the things you want online and you can download all of the information you want about the products you need before you buy them. Some things are a little bit harder to buy online but the world is continuing to move faster and faster in this direction.

Lintech has offered downloadable models from their website for years now as well as the ability to purchase material online. This online purchasing segment continues to expand.

However, often the motion solution for a particular application is not so clear-cut when deciding upon a particular product to select. Every application has a different set of requirements to contemplate. Therefore, multiple cost/benefit options need to be pursued and evaluated before a type of product emerges as a viable option. After this evaluation process, many times there is no “catalog” solution which is obvious and a custom system seems like the best route to follow.

Lintech has built a significant portion of their business providing custom motion solutions. Customers who inquire may have already completed exhaustive searches looking for an off-the-shelf solution only to determine the fit is not suitable. They may recall in their searches that Lintech has positioned themselves as a custom linear motion system provider. Lintech has US based manufacturing people and machinery to discuss, pass files, and arrive at the best custom solution suited to the constraints of an application.Lintech Application Description

Lintech Belt Drives

June 15, 2016

We had a customer recently looking to make some quick moves. They also needed to move a significant load and maintain motion that was accurate and fairly repeatable. We ended up directing the customer to the 180 series belt drive.

180-cp2-blue-Line-200

The 180 series is flexible in terms of its capacity since you can choose from different “standard” carriage lengths with 2, 4 or 6 bearings for load support. It is constructed with precise and rigid square rail linear guides as opposed to systems using plastic or steel roller wheels.  It is only 75mm tall and 152mm wide. There are numerous standard travel options but there is always the ability to specify something custom. As usual, Lintech offers any and all of the “bells & whistles” necessary to finish the system including motors, controls, gearheads, switches, etc. Generally, these accessories are all available within a 2-4 weeks lead-time.

Lintech’s 610 Series Table

May 31, 2016

Lintech recently introduced the IP30 rated 610 series screw driven linear table. The linear table is enclosed to protect it from contamination as well as providing confidence to customers that lubrication will not escape and harm the their environment. As with all Lintech tables, the 610 series is highly configurable and is offered with many options. Lintech also has pre-configured mounting plates so the tables can be stacked when more than one axis is required.

Lintech also offers motor mount adapters for NEMA, Rockwell, Mitsubishi, Yaskawa and other manufacturers. Of course, 3D models are offered online for standard products and upon request for custom products.

Lintech has been in California for almost 50 years making standard and custom linear motion assemblies.

Carriage Design Options

May 16, 2016

Lintech offers as a standard option on some of their linear tables the ability to choose from 2 carriage lengths and multiple bearings. This is quite unique. Instead of being forced to jump to a larger table, you can merely choose a larger carriage having more bearings to support the type of load being carried.

Carriage Options

This option allows you to save the space and cost associated with being forced into a larger overall system size generally required to gain more capacity. This is one of the many standard design choices available from Lintech. With ALL of the Lintech tables, you are given broad choices to configure the model to your needs.

Lintech Online Tools

May 2, 2016

Lintech manufactures linear motion systems for precision positioning. Part of a task to create a precision positioning system is to select a motor package which will move the specified load at the desired speed. Lintech offers online tools to aid in selecting a motor package with the necessary torque and speed capability.

On the main page there is a link to “sizing apps”. By clicking on that link, you will be taken to a page where you can select the Lintech table you have selected and then you will be prompted to fill in your application specifics in order to calculate the torque and speed required by a motor to perform your task.

Lintech Sizing Applications

Also included on the page with the sizing tools are other useful tools often used for determining the appropriate linear system.
