When a major manufacturer of stone fascias for upscale homes needed to transfer its 300lb mold forms into a spray booth for release coating, they approached TKF Conveyors.
When linear bearing systems fail prematurely, the reason almost always involves an overlooked application error.
For a case in point, consider what’s involved when switching from a ball-rail linear guide to Rollon’s Compact Rail.
In all too many applications, engineers still pick linear guides based on familiarity rather than true accuracy, load and size requirements. And all too often, the most familiar linear guides are recirculating-ball styles with the longest lead times.
Not all linear guides are created equal when it comes to delivery times. The highest-precision classes of linear guides usually have dramatically longer lead times, especially at lengths beyond 1240 mm.
