Linear modules have several names, such as linear modules, rectangular coordinate robots, linear slides, etc., which are automatic upgrade units following linear guides, linear motion modules, and ball screw linear transmission mechanisms. The linear and curved motion of the load can be realized through the combination of each unit, making the automation of light loads more flexible and more accurate in positioning.
Linear module play an very important role in automation industrial filed. It has many advantage feature for application.
- Cost reduction.
- High accuracy.
- Easy system installation and maintenance.
- High performance of dust proof.
- High efficiency, High reliability.
The currently widely used linear modules have 3 types: synchronous belt type, ball screw type, and linear motor type.
1. The synchronous belt type linear module is mainly composed of: belt, linear guide, aluminum alloy profile, coupling, motor, photoelectric switch, etc.
2. The ball screw type linear module is mainly composed of: ball screw, linear guide, aluminum alloy profile, ball screw support seat, coupling, motor, photoelectric switch, etc.
3. Linear motor type linear module mainly element is linear motor, linear guide rail, alloy profile.
Linear modules have been widely used in measurement, laser welding, laser cutting, gluing machine, spraying machine, punching machine, glue dispensing machine, small CNC machine tool, engraving and milling machine, sample plotter, cutting machine, transfer machine, Sorting machine, testing machine and suitable for education and other places.
