Mini linear guides bring higher dynamics to pick-and-place machines

Mini linear guides bring higher dynamics to pick-and-place machines
In the semiconductor industry machines operate with cycle times of one second or less, therefore pick-and-place units must offer very high dynamic performance. A case in point can be seen at a manufacturer of chip-mounting systems, where NSK recommended a combination of its ball screw and miniature linear guide technologies to replace the existing linear motor and significantly increase dynamic capability.

Low-friction ball bearings increase energy efficiency

Low-friction ball bearings increase energy efficiency
Energy efficiency is increased and operational noise is reduced through the use of low-friction ball bearings in drive systems. Bearings of this type will also reduce heat generation, which in turn helps to extend service life. Based on concepts such as optimised raceway geometry and special sealing concepts, NSK has developed several series of ball bearings that offer significantly lower friction characteristics.

Bearings save nearly €20k a year at biogas plant

Bearings save nearly €20k a year at biogas plant
NSK’s advanced moulded-oil deep groove ball bearings are used in the rotary screen of a biogas plant, and has seen a service life of more than double a normal bearing, which can help manufacturers save €19,200 per annum. Moulded-oil bearings feature lubricant that is embedded in a polyolefin resin, which prevents the penetration of liquid and particle contaminants to permit extended periods of maintenance-free running.

Increasing service life for linear guides

Increasing service life for linear guides
A solution to short lifespan issues recently was needed from a sheet metal manufacturer as it was experiencing difficulties with the drive and guide elements on its automated welding systems. The linear guides for a robotic welding gun on one particular production line had to be replaced every two or three months. Due to the cost of replacement parts and maintenance time, as well as equipment down-time, the company turned to NSK to investigate and provide a proposal to address the problem.

Ball screws offer greater dynamic load capacity

Ball screws offer greater dynamic load capacity
  The newly developed S-HTF series ball screws from NSK offer more than double the service life and 1.3 times greater dynamic load capacity than the company's previous generation product. These performance attributes have been achieved thanks to the use of a steel material for the screw shaft that delivers an optimised combination of hardness and resilience.
