With the design calculation program "Linear Motion Designer (LMD)" Bosch Rexroth is offering a tool for easy dimensioning of profiled rail systems and screw assemblies. The software covers the complete range of Bosch Rexroth roller-, ball- and miniature rail systems, as well as the ball screw- and planetary screw assemblies. The specialist in linear motion technology has produced a user-friendly software solution that satisfies all requirements of practical project planning and offers engineers unique opportunities to select and dimension the linear motion components themselves. By entering the process data – dynamics, masses and forces - once, users can compare different applications simply by changing the system parameters.

Furthermore it is possible to dimension the profiled rail system and the screw assembly in one calculation with the same process data.

Possible combinations for Profile Rail            
Number of Guide Rails 1 1 2 2 2 2
Number of Runner Blocks 1 2 2 4 6 8

Further advantages:

  • Visualization of the calculated configuration
  • Adaptation to the customer's own coordinate system by freely selectable coordinates
  • Convenient and flexible Calculation of 3-axis applications by entering transverse acceleration rates
  • Integrated update function
  • Available in following languages: German, English, French, Spanish, Chinese
