Motion Control System for Semiconductor Manufacturer Withstands Corrosive Vapors In Plating Operation!

Motion Control – Stages for Corrosive Environments

Linear Motion System from LM76 for corrosive Plating Line

motion control - linear motion products

Linear Motion – The above twin Linear slide system was designed for a large manufacturer of semiconductors. The vapors from a plating operation were so corrosive that linear components were failing within months of installation. LM76 designed a motion control system which was predominately stainless while some components were nickel plated.Ā  LM76’s polymatrix, ball screw nut was a major improvement over a competitor’s system which employed a standard re-circulating ball nut.

Linear Bearings: Special Plated, Lubrication Free, High Temp, Angular Contact Ball Bearings
Shafting: 304 Stainless with a Proprietary Hard Chrome Finish

Linear Motion Ball Screw from LM76
LM76 supplied this system complete with drive kit and motors.

Linear Motion System features Stainless Lead Screw and Polymatrix nut

LM76 employs our special
Polymatrix Screw/Nut assembly
in our stainless steel linear slides.
Our Polymatrix Nuts offer the following
advantages overtraditional plastic
and ball nuts:

1. Extremely Hard
2. Will not imbed, include material
3. Will not absorb liquids
4. Higher Load Capacity
5. No debris or mechanical failure
mode( lost balls ).
