Belt-driven actuated linear guide
max. 1 m/s, max. 1 m, max. 3300 N | MTE series
The MTE linear actuator is a design where the motor mounts to the carriage and the body traverses; which makes an ideal fit for vertical lift applications. The body is constructed from a 55 mm x 55 mm (2.17 in x 2.17 in) anodized aluminum profile; allowing for corrosion resistance in severe environments. The linear actuators outer surfaces are precision extruded, providing for flush mounting on both sides and the base to facilitate a qualified, clean and easy installation. T-slots along the full body length allow for the unit to be mounted in numerous orientations and for ancillary items, such as sensors, to be mounted directly to its body.
Linear motion is provided by a steel reinforced timing belt. Belts provide for high speed, high force and high acceleration while maintaining accurate positioning. Applications requiring long lengths of travel are optimum for using belt drives over screw drives mainly due to not being subjected to vibrations caused by the screws when reaching critical speed. Smooth running, low noise and low maintenance are other benefits when using belt drive systems.
Linear guidance is through re-circulating ball bearing runner blocks traveling on hardened and ground profile rails. The unique carriage design and bearing placement boasts for high load and moment capacity. The profile rail and bearing design provide high rigidity, accuracy and speed with low friction, noise and vibration for the carriage.
