A linear guideway allows a type of linear motion that utilizes rolling elements such as balls or rollers. By using recirculating rolling elements between the rail and the block, a linear guideway can achieve high precision linear motion. Compared to a traditional slide, the coefficient of friction for a linear guideway is only 1/50. Because of the restraint effect between the rails and the blocks, linear guideways can take up loads in both the up/down and the left/right directions. With these features, linear guideways can greatly enhance moving accuracy, especially, when accompanied with precise ball screws.
Ballscrews, also called a ball bearing screws, recirculating ballscrews, etc., consist of a screw spindle and a nut integrated with balls and the balls’ return mechanism, return tubes or return caps. Ballscrews are the most common type of screws used in industrial machinery and precision machines. The primary function of a ballscrew is to convert rotary motion to linear motion or torque to thrust, and vice versa, with the features of high accuracy, reversibility and efficiency.
Bearing supports are composed of main body, bearings, cover plate, spacers, oil seals, lock nut, and set screws. Matched with the customer´s axial loading requirement, the bearing support has three configuration types: DF, DFD and DFF.
HIWIN Corporation's single axis robots utilize a combination of a motor driven ballscrew or belt and linear guideway system. These compact and lightweight units are customizable and can be easily transformed into a multi-axis system, making them suitable for a wide range of industrial applications. Depending on the application needs, Hiwin offers a single axis robot that will increase a systems productivity and efficiency.
HIWIN Corporation Crossed Roller Bearings consist of an outer ring, an inner ring, and a plurality of rollers and spacers. The roller lies between the inner and outer ring with the spacers placed between the rollers to prevent the mutual friction between them thereby decreasing the torque resistance for rotation. There are six types of Hiwin Crossed Roller Bearings comprising of, the split outer ring type (CRBA), the split inner ring type (CRBB), the high rigidity type (CRBC), the split outer ring with mounting holes (CRBD), the high rigidity with mounting holes (CRBE) and the customized type (CRBX).
