Linear Slide Tables

A linear motion bearing is a device that is used to permit the movement of a specific entity in a linear way. Linear slides are devices which are used to provide precision motion along linear planes for many different types of automated machinery for the purposes of pushing, pulling or positioning. Using ball bearings, or cylindrical bearings, linear slides are able to move with low friction and energy expenditure. Continue reading

An Inspector Gadget Like Van

Growing up I had a very good friend who was restricted to a wheel chair, although I didn’t know it was a restriction while we were small but was rather jealous of his Inspector Gadget chair, with all it’s cool buttons, speeds and so forth, He also had phenomenal personality and spirit, which never made anyone who knew him think he was less able to do everything we were able to do. I was particularly jealous of his mom’s van, which was equipped with a special elevator that came out of the back door and lowered itself to the ground for my friend to roll onto, then rising again with him and his chair into the van. When we were on our way to school, he always let me ride up with him, and we would sing the Inspector Gadget theme song the whole way up. What I didn’t know then was that the mechanism that allowed my friend to equip his van with an Inspector Gadget like lift was simple but amazing; it was a linear slide table. Continue reading

Positioning Stages: The Maneuverable Table

Tabletops are one of those necessities that we may think we can do without but are actually vital to us in industrial, commercial and residential contexts alike. Although meals do not require a table to be eaten, a restaurant without tables would be a strange place indeed. Outside of the residential spectrum, office buildings must have table space for computers, phones and a center to create a meeting space around. Industrial contexts cannot get machining done without a variety of tabletop options available to steady the material being machined. Also, the medical field and other scientifically based industries rely heavily on tables for testing and examination. It is in these last two contexts that not only a table, but a positioning stage is necessary. Continue reading

Roller Tables: Heavy Load Capacity

If you have a heavy duty application that requires a linear slide that can handle some serious weight, then the roller table is the device you are looking for. Able to push, pull and position objects or machine parts with precise maneuverability and controlled speeds when attached to an electric motor, the roller table is a more complex version of the simple but essential roller slide. The roller slide is a basic linear slide model, utilizing a series of cylindrically shaped metal pieces within a basic framework called liner rails. Sometimes motorized as the roller table is, a roller slide can run manually as well, similar to a manual conveyor belt. Continue reading

Finding the Right Roller Table Material

Roller tables are a type of positioning stage. The provide low-friction movement to heavy and/or awkward loads. They can be found in industrial automation equipment, fiber optic systems, semiconductors and material handling industries. When choosing the perfect roller table, there are many things that need to be taken into consideration. One of the decisions that must be made is what material it should be made of. The material will determine how well the product will perform in its application. Continue reading
