How to Accomplish Predictable, Reliable
Tips for correctly specifying and sizing your
On the surface, it may seem like choosing the right actuator for
a given application is an easy task. In reality, however, much more
goes into selecting a reliable actuator than some engineers and
system integrators may be aware of.
Self-Aligning Linear Guides For Aircraft
When airline passengers travel in coach class,
expectations are fairly low with regard to comfort. For example,
most seats only offer two positions, straight for takeoff and
landing, and a slight recline for the journey.
Coach seats are relatively simple and lightweight structures
compared to their more sophisticated counterparts in business
class, first class, and super first class. Whereas a coach seat
weighs approximately 100 lb, seats in higher classes weigh 200 to
300 lb each, depending on their features. We examine the most
important technical factors to consider when selecting linear
guides for seating applications.
Specifying Actuators For Clean Room
Selecting the right actuator for use in any
manufacturing operation involves a host of application-specific
variables, including aspects such as the required stroke length,
load capacity, acceleration, maximum speed and positioning
The following tips are intended to help design engineers
determine the correct actuator for their next clean room
application, a common task for those working in the medical device,
pharmaceutical, biotechnology and semiconductor manufacturing
Specifying Actuators For Heavy-Duty
What does a design engineer or system integrator need to
know when selecting actuators for heavy-duty packaging
The task of selecting, sizing and applying linear actuators
involves many variables, from stroke length and duty cycle to
precision and accuracy requirements. Here we take a detailed
look at some of the most important aspects to consider.
Anticorrosive Coatings Protect Train
As economies around the globe continue to confront
higher energy prices and population density in large urban centers,
the worldwide rail industry is poised for steady expansion and
ongoing technological innovation.
High-speed and very high speed (VHS) passenger rail lines, in
particular, are gaining ground within Europe and beyond, including
Spain's ambitious AVE project and China's continued investment in
multiple domestic lines.
Avoiding Linear Bearing Failure Series
When linear bearing systems fail prematurely, the reason
almost always involves an overlooked application
These errors fall into just five different categories and when
left unchecked, can reduce the life of a bearing by 50 percent or
- Misalignment of the bearing rails and moving elements.
- Inadequate lubrication of the bearing's unsealed
- Contamination of the bearing rails and raceways.
- Crash on start-up.
- Excess speed and acceleration.
Rollon has now made it easier than ever to avoid the application
mistakes that threaten bearing life.
Our technical service team has published a new series of
technical articles explaining the five causes of bearing failure in
detail and offering advice on how to steer clear of them.

One of the greatest threats to the long life of a linear motion
system usually occurs on its very first stroke.
Managing Misalignment in Linear Motion
Of all the factors that contribute to the premature failure of
linear bearings, misalignment ranks near the top of the list. Learn
how to cope without breaking the bank.
