New Linear Motion Technology selection guide from Rexroth features product details and technical insights

New Linear Motion Technology selection guide from Rexroth features product details and technical ins

Rexroth’s comprehensive Linear Motion Technology selection guide helps design engineers determine the most appropriate linear motion products and systems for their applications.

Bosch Rexroth’s new Linear Motion Technology selection guide gives machine design engineers a comprehensive overview of the benefits and applications of Rexroth’s linear motion products. The guide is also a resource to help engineers determine which linear motion products meet their application requirements, as well as technical insights into issues like cost savings through standardization and energy efficiency.

The guide is available as a free download at www.boschrexroth-us.com/linearmotion.

The 88-page guide provides information about the applications, performance capabilities and energy efficiency of linear motion technology.

It also contains an overview of the structural design, operating principles and characteristics of Bosch Rexroth’s linear motion products, including precision modules, profiled rail, ball screw drives, miniature components, electromechanical actuators and completely preconfigured linear motion systems with matching motors and controls.

Not just a product brochure, the Linear Motion Technology selection guide offers engineers example applications and technical drawings to illustrate, for instance, how reducing friction can dramatically lower energy consumption without sacrificing machine performance or capacity. Other examples illustrate how precision-engineering and manufacturing of profiled rail systems can minimize downtime during changeovers, provide cost –efficiency in logistics and installation, and lower the overall cost of ownership.

The new guide is part of the recently created Bosch Rexroth Linear Motion Resource Center online, which provides customers with easy access to Rexroth’s most popular linear motion resources, including interactive tools for system design, product configuration tools, technical documents, product updates, and other useful information.
