Linear motion costs down

Baldor reports that it has lowered the entry costs for implementing linear motion technology. Linear motion systems can offer benefits of speed, acceleration, accuracy and repeatability over rotary systems, and with its Series LSXT linear motion systems, Baldor says it has reduced the cost of linear motion by some 30%. Series LSXT stages are available in travel lengths up to 2.84m with a payload capacity of 136kg. Maximum velocity is 5m/s, with accelerations up to 98.1m/s2.
