The F-Guide, LinMot’s newest motor guide solution, is a direct replacement for the previous G01 guides, offering additional features and capabilities.
The F-Guide employs a moving carriage riding on a linear rail. Improving on the G01 guides’ recirculating ball bearings riding on an extrusion captured linear shaft, the F-guide uses an industry-leading high-speed bearing and linear rail assembly. This design improves reliability, increases stiffness, and provides smoother operation. As an alternative to LinMot’s H and B guide units, the F-Guide offers longer strokes, increased load capacities and a more rigid design.
The F-guide is available in stroke lengths from 140mm to 2075mm. Readily available adapter plates allow easy to assemble gantry system configurations. LinMot’s H-guides or B-guides make for easy Z-axis addition. The unique linear-rotary all in one actuator can be mounted for Z-axis/Theta axis on any F-guide. An optional external position sensor system can be added for improved repeatability and accuracy.
