Precise, clever and maintenance-free
Offenburg – Drive technology specialist HIWIN is expanding the functions, properties and areas of application of its linear guideways in the CG series with a modular building block system.
This opens up numerous options for tailoring rails and blocks in the CG series to different requirements.
The advantages are clear to see: The mechanical linear guideway can be quickly and easily turned into an intelligent guiding component with highly accurate, integrated distance measuring. Depending on the application, additional lubrication units can extend the maintenance intervals to achieve maintenance-free lifetime lubrication.
Thanks to the modular building block principle, HIWIN delivers in record time, whether it be the standard version or a customised linear guideway.
The CG linear guideways are generally characterised by their high precision and load-bearing capacity. As the four ball tracks are arranged in an O shape, the linear guideway is more rigid and can sustain much higher rolling moments. This is particularly beneficial for applications with single guides.
HIWIN GmbH, a subsidiary of the Taiwanese HIWIN Technologies Corporation, has been developing, producing and selling linear technology since 1993. Alongside rails, ballscrews, linear actuators and ball bushings, the product portfolio also includes complete positioning systems comprising linear motor axes, linear modules, planar motors, rotary tables, torque motors, positioning measurement systems and industrial robots. As well as standard solutions, HIWIN also manufactures custom-made products. Furthermore, the Offenburg-based company offers consultations and product training as well as a maintenance and repair service. HIWIN’s customer base includes individual users and OEM customers from a huge range of industry sectors; for example, manufacturers of machine tools, packaging machines and special-purpose equipment as well as producers of medical technology.
