Linearsystems from Rodriguez combine the advantages of linear guiding systems and mechanical drive mechanisms in a compact and simple way. Rodriguez ALS series linear slides are equipped with precision guide shafts. Selfaligning linear ball bushings as well as standard versions or fullsteel linear ball bushings are available as rolling bearings. Additionally these units can be equipped with selflubricating linear slide bushings.
Rodriguez linear slides offer the user a choice between the movable (version A) or the fixable slide (version B). Both variants are available with or without bellows (option F). If extremely high loads should exert an influence on the linear slide, the use of supported precision shafts is recommended. Ballscrew-driven systems (ALSK), trapezoidalscrew-driven systems and beltdriven units are available.
In addition to the linear slides, the Rodriguez portfolio also includes linearsystems with linear guideways as guides, sliding guides and roller-bearing guideways. Connected to an aluminium profile, this is a very compact and high-performance linearsystem. These systems can be driven by ballscrews or belts.
Also in the program: Linear guideway-tables are the ideal system for linear motions with high rigidity requirements. The base plate of the rail guide tables consists of machined aluminum profiles or steel with stop angles. The Rodriguez ball rail guides built into the stiff axis with four long guide carriages per table part. The drive is optionally performed either with a ballscrew drive (RSTK), linear motors (RSTL) or a belts (RSTZ).
The linear slides of the ALS series are equipped with precision round rail guides. Various linear bearings are available such as self-aligning linear ball bearings as well as standard or solid steel linear ball bearings. Alternatively, the units can also be fitted with self-lubricating linear slide bearings.
Rodriguez linear slides are available in several versions:
Movable slider (Design A)
Fixable slider (Design B)
With and without bellows (Option F)
Supported precision shafts (for very high loads)
Drive variant rolled ballscrew drive (ALSK)
Drive variant rolled ballscrew drive (ALST)
Drive variant toothed belt (ALSZ)
Features of the ALS series:
Cross-section of 24x65 mm up to 135x230 mm
Maximal lift up to 5700 mm
Maximal Cdyn 31620 N
Compact linearsystems of the Movopart / Wiesel series
This component consists of an aluminium profile with integrated linear guideways. They are driven optionally with rolled ballscrews or toothed belt. This results in very compact and efficient linear systems.
For linear movements with high requirements regarding the stiffness, ball rail tables by Rodriguez are used. The base plate of the ball rail tables consists of processed aluminium profiles or steel with reference edges. Rodriguez linear guideways with four long carriages for each slider are integrated in the stiff axis.
The compact, closed linear system RLA is equipped with a rolled ballscrew drive and two recirculating linear guideways. The linear system RLA is especially suitable for applications in the medium load range with high requirements in respect of accuracy.
The basis of the linear unit RLA is an aluminium profile with an integrated ballscrew drive, two linear guideways and suitable bearings. Each has get two guide carriages.
Optimally coordinated, high precision mechanical conversion parts and a self-retaining stainless-steel cover strip complete the linear unit RLA.
If necessary, the RLA can be modified specifically to the application. It would also be possible to merge several linear units to an X-Y cross table or an X-Y-Z systems solution.
