Process for selecting NB LINEAR SYSTEM

In order to select the optimal NB product for your system, it is necessary to check and calculate about various conditions in your system. Please select optimal NB product according to the following procedures. (For details, please refer to the PDF catalogs on the Downloads Page.)

Go to Download Catalog

Go to Download CAD

1. Check the application conditions

Identify machine type to be used, application conditions, environmental conditions, and desired accuracy.

Arrow
2. Decide system type

Please decide the system type depending on the operating conditions.

Go to Products Information

Arrow
3. Pre-select the size and number of linear systems

Pre-select the size and number based on balance of machinery and other equipment as well as past experience.

Arrow
4. Calculate applied load

Calculate applied load on each system. Calculate average variable load.

Refer to Engineering Information [ Method for Determining Applied Load ]

Arrow
5. Determine static load

Determine basic static load rating and allowable static moment by applying static safety factor.

* When neither a point to be checked nor a calculation result fulfills conditions in this stage, it is necessary to return to [2:Decide system type] and to do selection again.

Refer to Engineering Information [Allowable Load]

Arrow
6. Compute rated life

Checking Hardness Coefficient, Temperature Coefficient, Contact Coefficient and Applied Load Coefficient, please compute the rated life in consideration of the applied load (No.4) and the basic dynamic load rating (Pre-selection).

* When conditions are not fulfilled as compared with [1:Determine the application conditions], it is necessary to return to [2:Decide system type] or [3:Pre-select the size and number of linear systems] and to do selection again.

Refer to Engineering Information [Life]

Arrow
7. Determine preload and accuracy

Decide preload and accuracy based on the operating conditions. (refer to each product description for preload and accuracy)

* When neither a point to be checked nor a calculation result fulfills conditions in this stage, it is necessary to return to [2:Decide system type] or [3:Pre-select the size and number of linear systems] and to do selection again.

Refer to Engineering Information [Rigidity and Pre-Load]

Arrow
8. Select Lubrication and dust prevention method

Select lubrication and dust prevention method. (seals, bellows, covers)

Refer to Engineering Information [Operating Environment]

Arrow
9. Confirm the space needed in the equipment

Confirm space and installation dimensions in consideration of the machine size and ease of maintenance.

* When neither a point to be checked nor a calculation result fulfills conditions in this stage, it is necessary to return to [2:Decide system type] or [3:Pre-select the size and number of linear systems] and to do selection again.

Arrow

Thus, selection completed.

If you have any question, please contact NB.
