Motion Monday: Smooth Motion for Fast, Accurate Testing

CHALLENGE Beta Instruments — a manufacturer of various mechatronic, mechanical and robotic solutions — needed a large ring bearing, and was unimpressed with the high cost and implementation difficulty of standard slewing type ring bearings.

The application requirements specific that the ring exhibit smooth motion and have an integrated gear drive.

APPLICATION This measuring device uses state-of-the-art electronics and custom designed computer programs to provide the fast and accurate measurement of Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) screen features, either automated or manual.

SOLUTION A standard ring offers extremely smooth motion without the integration headaches most ring bearings cause. Only six drilled and tapped holes are required for mounting.  The ring comes with external gear teeth as a standard option.

PRODUCTS USED R76-1033-R360-P Ring Slide,  GV3 Bearing BHJ-54-C,  BHJ-54-E — all from Hepcomotion
