E. Longmeadow, MA – Motion Control  — LM76 offers extremely competitive pricing on all types of precision shafting: round, hollow, predrilled, continuous support extrusions, predrilled & assembled shafting. We specialize in standard linear shafting: RC60/Class L Linear Shafting, 300 series s/s Linear Shafting. For most applications, RC60/Class L is the linear shafting of choice with all LM76 linear bearing styles: Minuteman, Ceramic Coated and FDA/USDA compatible.

When using a linear motion self lube linear bearing of any kind PTFE like our industry leading Minuteman™ linear bearing, remember that non-lubricated linear shafting will oxidize and rust. LM76’s soft 300 series stainless linear shafting ( RB25 ) is a natural selection for both our Minuteman™ and FDA/USDA compliant linear bearings where washdown and chemical resistance are a must.  To you help select the best shafting and bearings for your application review carefully the “Selection Guide” below: Read more »

E. Longmeadow, MA – Motion Control – Application Story – Dairy machinery manufacturers are under intense scrutiny by FDA inspectors when it comes to FDA material and caustic washdown compliance. Recently, LM76 was called by a large US dairy packaging company to review a problematic portion of their filling line. After each shift, the filling line is washed-down, has a caustic foaming agent applied to kill bacteria and then is final rinsed. The caustic foaming agent was destroying – literally eating – the aluminum shaft supports while shafting exhibited pitting and showed signs of minor corrosion. Read more »

Motion Control – CERAMICSPEED Radial Hybrid Bearings Prevents Arcing!

Motion Control – Hybrid Radial Bearings

motion control- the engineering edge

motion control - hybrid radial bearings

E. Longmeadow, MA – — Motion Control – CeramicSpeed Insulated ball bearings are custom made for electrical motors and your guarantee against damage caused by stray currents.

The ceramic balls used for this product series are non-conductive and have an insulating ability of 15 kV per mm – higher than that of atmospheric air.

Bearings from competing manufacturers with an insulating coating typically have an insulating ability of up to 1 kV; provided that the coating is not damaged – for example when the bearing is mounted. In practice this protection isn’t always sufficient, meaning that these bearings are also vulnerable to damage by stray currents.

In addition to being protected from the passage of electrical currents, the operating temperature is 10-20 °C lower, and the resulting is a bearing life typically 4-8 times longer than traditional steel bearings.

E. Longmeadow, MA –Motion Control – LM76 has developed the most corrosion resistant linear bearing available. In space, deep under the sea, or in the harshest environments, when there can be no “Plan B,” Pegasus Series 1 Linear Ball Bearings can be counted on to perform. In some applications linear bearings will not move for days, weeks, months or even years, however, when called on to perform they must work as if they just came out of the box. LM76’s Pegasus Series 1 Linear Bearings feature Silicon Nitride (SiNi) Ceramic Balls in a shell with retainer and end caps all made from 440 Stainless Steel and then ArmorloyTM coated. Read more »
