Linear Bearing Speed and Acceleration: Which Spec Matters Most In Automated Systems?

It may always be tempting to look at a linear bearings’ maximum speed to see if it will do the trick in a fast motion system. But focusing solely on speed without regard for the underlying mechanics of the linear bearing system will only slow you down.

Read our paper to understand why engineers focused on medium-precision applications like fast, light automation systems may pay too much attention to speed specs when acceleration is what really counts. Read our paper to understand why only when considered in the context of acceleration and the overall motion profile does speed become important.
