The third generation of MKK and MKR Linear Modules from Bosch Rexroth Canada provides a considerably expanded range of equipment options for the familiar space-saving dimensions of the previous series, according to the company, with ready-to-install linear axes designed to be easily connected to one-point lubrication systems. In the corrosion-resistant versions, the hard chromeplated ball screw drives and ball rails help ensure a high resistance to chemicals.
The Linear Modules consist of an anodized aluminum profile body with integrated ball rails and the option of a ball screw drive or a belt drive. As ready-to-install assemblies, Linear Modules reduce the construction and installation effort in all types of machines and systems, with the one-point lubrication system connectivity helping achieve a longer service life of the axes. For their part, the corresponding components, ball screw drives and runner blocks are also ready for one-point lubrication with liquid grease or oil. The ball screw drive variant of the Linear Module is offered in lengths up to 5,400-mm, while Linear Modules with belt drives are available in lengths up to 9,400-mm.
Also, a new switch concept simplifies assembly and saves time because the magnetic field sensors for limit switches fit directly into the profile frame without additional mounting accessories, while the two carriages with variable centerline-to-centerline distance accommodate larger attachments with enhanced system rigidity.
