How to Accomplish Predictable, Reliable Linear Motion

Tips for correctly specifying and sizing your actuator

How To Accomplish Predictable Linear Motion

On the surface, it may seem like choosing the right actuator for a given application is an easy task. In reality, however, much more goes into selecting a reliable actuator than some engineers and system integrators may be aware of.

Self-Aligning Linear Guides For Aircraft Seating

When airline passengers travel in coach class, expectations are fairly low with regard to comfort. For example, most seats only offer two positions, straight for takeoff and landing, and a slight recline for the journey.

 Self Aligning Linear Guides For Aircraft Seating

Coach seats are relatively simple and lightweight structures compared to their more sophisticated counterparts in business class, first class, and super first class. Whereas a coach seat weighs approximately 100 lb, seats in higher classes weigh 200 to 300 lb each, depending on their features. We examine the most important technical factors to consider when selecting linear guides for seating applications.

Avoiding Linear Bearing Failure Series

When linear bearing systems fail prematurely, the reason almost always involves an overlooked application error.

These errors fall into just five different categories and when left unchecked, can reduce the life of a bearing by 50 percent or more:

  • Misalignment of the bearing rails and moving elements.
  • Inadequate lubrication of the bearing's unsealed components.
  • Contamination of the bearing rails and raceways.
  • Crash on start-up.
  • Excess speed and acceleration.

Rollon has now made it easier than ever to avoid the application mistakes that threaten bearing life.

Our technical service team has published a new series of technical articles explaining the five causes of bearing failure in detail and offering advice on how to steer clear of them.
