MISUMI Europa GmbH is constantly adding to its range of linear units. The LX Series now offers a greater choice of standard lengths and two single-axis linear units with parallel mounted motors. The new unit lengths can be used to tap into new markets. The motor assembly also requires less installation space in a longitudinal direction.
MISUMI has expanded its LX-Series product range to include a greater choice of standard lengths: The LX20 now comes in installation lengths of 80, 250 and 300. The LX26 model is now available to order in lengths of 100, 350 and 400 and the LX30 version in a length of 125. The new designs come in installation heights ranging from 20 to 45 mm with spindle pitches between 1 and 20 mm. Like all MISUMI LX linear units, the systems operate with minimum noise and high precision thanks to the use of precision ball screws. All LX linear systems use clean room compatible lubricant. This includes the new single-axis LX30 and LX45 linear units with parallel mounted motors. Up to now an installation length of between 100 and 150 mm had to be factored into the travelling distance; the new LX unit reduces this to a compact 40 mm. The motor flange on the flanged nut housing is designed to accommodate almost any servo or stepper motor on the market.
Naturally, the new MISUMI components are also available as sealed units, which are particularly suitable for use in harsh environments. All LX-Series units also come with an LTBC-plated base plate and guiding carriage. This extends the life span of the component by protecting against corrosion and reducing friction.
LX-Series linear units from MISUMI are renowned for their impressive rigidity and precision, as well as their compact design. They are compatible with motors from almost every manufacturer and can be ready for dispatch within just 13 days. The LX unit with parallel mounted motor comes with an adapter plate, cover and belt drive. What’s more the belt drive does not need to be self-assembled.
