Acorn Industrial Services will be exhibiting a wide range of linear motion products from world class manufacturers Nadella, THK and SKF at the Southern Manufacturing show at Five, Farnborough
Products highlighted will include Nadella’s new C-Line guide rail. The new C-Line LS series is a complete guide system consisting of a guide rail, guide rollers and carriage. The rail is manufactured from drawn steel, induction hardened and zinc plated for long term reliability. The design of the system allows for parallelism and mounting surface errors, leading to simpler and less costly installation, according to the firm. The C-Line rollers are lubricated for life and feature an integrated lubricating system. The carriages have concentric and eccentric rollers allowing the running characteristics to be adjusted to suit the application. Speeds of up to 8m/s and acceleration up to 50m/s2 are possible, say the company.
Nadella C line linear guide system can be used in a wide range of applications in both general and automated machinery, and are particularly well suited to installations where a higher tolerance to rail misalignment and surface mounting errors are necessary. Furthermore these guides can be used in contaminated environments, says the company, where profile rail guides would not be suitable.
In addition to the new C-Line guide rail, Nadella’s FSRO Oval circuit, belt drive actuator, their Heavy Line, V-Line, U-Line and Base Line guide rails will also be on display, alongside products from THK and SKF.
