APPROPRIATE CHOOSING THE LINEAR MOTION GUIDE FOR ROBOTIC APPLICATIONS
The Linear Motion Guides (LM Guides) are provided with an ideal rolling mechanism capable of bearing vertical and horizontal loads. Therefore, the difference between dynamic and static friction is minimal and lost motion hardly occurs. The problem of choosing the appropriate type and size of the LM Guide is very important to obtain maximum performances of the mechanical systems guided by such mechanism. Based on the knowledge of operating conditions and data from the producer catalog, this paper provides a practical algorithm to support designer works.Key words: linear motion, motion guides, robotics, machine design.
