New RediMount System Allows Thomson Slides to Mount With Any Motor
(PRWEB) November 4, 2004
A design enhancement for Metric ballscrew driven slides, Piloted RediMount offers numerous benefits to users of factory automation products. Both the leadtime and the slide price are independent of the motor a customer intends to mount. In addition, both the ordering and field maintenance processes have been simplified. It also gives users the ability to inventory slides and customise motor mountings at the point of use.
Among the new design features are a self-aligning hub to maintain concentricity between motor shaft and gearhead, plus a pre-installed pinion to eliminate setting procedure. Its modular design allows separate stocking of gearhead and input housing, while interchangeability is guaranteed as the same RediMount system is used across all Micron product lines.
The Thomson piloted RediMount system also incorporates an intermediate housing and hub to the motor end block of the slide. This housing will not change the overall length of the motor end block because, at the time of order, it is machined to mate with the key characteristics of the customerÂs motor – including bolt size and bolt circle diameter on the motor flange, motor pilot diameter and motor shaft diameter and length.
ÂThe Thomson Piloted RediMount eliminates the need to research, confirm the fit, or specify the interface dimensions between a positioning slide and the motor of choice,Â explained Anders Trygg, Danaher MotionÂs Product Manager for Linear Systems. ÂThe user simply specifies the desired Thomson Slide part number, as well as the manufacturer and part number of the motor that the end user will be installing. We assume the responsibility of customising the mating motor interface, with no increase in lead time or price for a given frame size, Âhe added.
