Recirculating units enable an unlimited stroke with linear motion all in a compact design.
Schneeberger, the renowned Swiss German manufacturer developed this range of products, which are available through LG Motion in the UK, adding yet more depth to the already wide range of motion control products available from our stock.
The units are supplied with either ball or roller bearings and are able to support rigid and compact designs with an unlimited stroke. The standard unit is also combined with Schneeberger linear bearings types R and RD.
The components are manufactured from through-hardened tool steel with aluminium transmission parts as well as plastic wipers and damping elements. Stainless steel versions of the unit are available on request.
The recirculating units deliver a high level of accuracy and rigidity with an unlimited stroke and may typically be used in both normal environments as well as cleanrooms or in a vacuum.
The range of sizes and options are suitable for small to heavy loads and it is also possible to even out minor angular errors with the units.
Ball Or Roller Options
The recirculating units are available in sizes 1 – 12 and come in various lengths. For small to medium loads, the ball bearing option types SK and SKD with damping elements is recommended. For heavy loads, the SR unit with crosswise rollers is recommended and for vacuum and cleanroom applications the SKC with ceramic balls should be used.
