Motion Control Application – How Do You Move Articles of Antiquity?

“Very Carefully” With A High Load Rail System from LM76!

motion control - application

E. Longmeadow, MA – — Motion Control – Application -The Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) has to move articles of antiquity from one location to another. In this instance, they are moving a 5000 year old relief (hieroglyphics) weighing 8000 pounds to a new location in the Museum. Here is a frontal photo of the Relief from The Tomb of Senenuka.

Motion Control – FDA/USDA/3A-Dairy Compliant ETX Scraper Seals for Linear Bearings Used In Food Processing Applications!

Motion Control – ETX Scrapers and Seals


E. Longmeadow, MA – Motion Control Components – Linear Motion – LM76 has introduced FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy compliant, snap-in ETX Scraper Seals for linear bearings. Machined from Ertalyte® PET-P, ETX Scraper Seals have high strength, excellent wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, and excellent dimensional stability at higher temperatures than seals from other materials. Designed with a slight interference fit between bearing ID and shaft, ETX Scraper Seals prevents contaminates and debris from migrating beneath the seal as it scrapes the shaft surface.

Ertalyte® PET-P’s low frictional characteristics have little impact on drive force. These FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy compliant scraper seals are ideal for: Pharmaceutical, medical, food, and dairy processing applications.

Motion Control – CERAMICSPEED Bearing Units Are FDA Compliant!

Motion Control – Ceramic Radial Bearings are FDA Compliant

E. Longmeadow, MA – LM76 is continuing to expand its FDA compliant radial and linear bearing product lines. CERAMICSPEED Bearing Units are the latest additions. Bearings used in the food and beverage industry have to be reliable, easily cleaned, and require only minimal maintenance. CERAMICSPEED Bearing Units featuring FDA-approved Si3N4 (Silicon Nitride) balls have extremely long service life as Si3N4 balls are 2 times harder than steel balls and 4 times smoother.

motion control - linear motion products

This means, CERAMICSPEED Bearing Units handle higher loads with less friction, resulting in longer life of the balls and the race. Balls made from Silicon Nitride do not change their shape under load and are not subject to spalling which can contaminate the foods or beverages being processed. They are also very tolerant of temperature extremes (-30OC to 100OC) and thermal shock.

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

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.  LM76’s polymatrix, ball screw nut was a major improvement over a competitor’s system which employed a standard re-circulating ball nut.

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.
