2A Single tube linear units
The group “Single Tube Linear Units 2A” contains linear units made of chrome-plated steel or bright stainless steel precision tubes. Together with linear unit connectors, these form a solid linear round or square guide. The spindle drive in the guide tube transmits the linear movement to a linear unit connector.
The linear units are freely configurable and are entirely manufactured by Inocon. Single tube linear units can be divided into four types:
Linear units with one guide element: the linear unit connector is moved along the guide tube by the spindle thread.
Linear units with two opposing guide elements: two linear unit connectors move symmetrically along the guide tube due to different thread directions.
Linear units with two independent guide elements: two linear unit connectors move independently along the guide tube due to separate spindles.
Telescope linear units: an outer tube forms the linear unit connector, which is moved along the inner guide tube by the spindle thread. This increases or decreases the total length of the linear units.
Possible accessories for the single tube linear units offered in group 2D include handwheels in various designs, position indicators and spacer plates for spindle clamping. The accessories are matched to the nominal diameters of the linear units. The matching linear unit connectors are available in group 2B in all typical part types, such as cross, base or flanged linear unit connectors.
Together with the linear unit connectors, single tube linear units can be used to quickly and easily assemble solid linear guides that can be flexibly adapted to many different areas of application, such as for format adjustment and machine building.
