News From the Industry
When it comes to specifying linear motion within a machine, system designers have many options from which to choose. Making the right choice can impact the ease of installation, footprint and cost of operation.
The following article is a round-up of the latest linear motion product and industry news items featured at www.powertransmission.com and on social media.
Electromechanical rodless linear actuators can offer better load handling in smaller spaces than rod-style actuators, but realizing those benefits requires careful attention at the specification level. Whether you are replacing a failed actuator, looking for better performance or building a new application from the ground up, success depends on how precisely you specify application requirements.
Improving System Performance One Application at a Time. PTE recently caught up with IKO, Rollon and THK to breakdown the basics in linear motion rolling guides.
Here's what one supplier is doing to take advantage of the mobile phone in your pocket.
Digitalization is increasingly transforming mechanical engineering and manufacturing technologies, bringing with it not only unparalleled control and flexibility over production systems but so much more.
The Swiss Army Knife of PT Components.
When designers and integrators need simple, flexible and compact linear actuation, they often turn to stepper motor linear actuators (SMLAs). The high configurability of SMLAs is among their greatest virtues, but sorting through myriad configuration options to tailor the optimal solution for a particular application can be a challenge for even the most seasoned motion engineer.
Key advantages of linear motion components in aerospace applications.

Linear guide systems are perhaps the most diverse group of products in the motion control industry. Here's how to pick the best one for your application.
Reviewing the characteristics of lead screws vs. ball screws can help you select the right screw-driven system for your linear motion application.
Fully integrated linear modules can be versatile and cost-effective for linear transport applications in packaging machinery.
Energy efficiency is for more than just motors. Here are some mechatronics companies making sure you get more bang for your buck when it comes to your power bill.
Companies look to fuel economy, energy efficiency and operating costs to improve off-highway applications.
Bosch Rexroth began developing linear bushings, shafts, slides, and transfer tables as prototypes in the 1960s. The first two complete linear modules with linear guides in combination with a ball screw assembly and toothed belt drive as a ready-to-install subsystem were launched in 1990 -- a quantum leap in the linear axes range which had previously been dominated by components.
In today's highly competitive world, the better someone understands the advantages and benefits of direct drive technology, then the more they will have an advantage in machine building, giving them an edge over their competition.
How to select a guide wheel with the properties best-suited for a given application to create a system that reduces design costs and engineering changes, and lowers warranty, assembly, installation and mounting costs.

This Q&A session with various experts at Thomson Linear Systems covers linear slides & stages, clutches & brakes, bearings and actuators.
Companies focus on customization and quality in linear motion
Ball screw assemblies are key to this patent-pending oilfield corrosion prevention solution.
Smart actuators bring big benefits to utility and other off-highway vehicles
A reader asks for clarification on last issue's Ask the Expert column about ball screw sizing.
When the need arises for linear motion or positioning, there are many choices. One can use an Acme screw, ball screw, rack & pinion, or belts. The cost of a linear motor solution is generally greater than a mechanical linear product, but when one needs highly accurate, repeatable, high-speed motion, then the answer may be a linear motor.
