Four-row Linear Recirculating Ball Bearing and Guideway Assemblies
Series KUVE-B / KUVE-B-KT
High dynamics, high load ratings, small mounting space, small moving mass, low-noise operation, long-term running quality, minimum maintenance, high level of operational reliability: Those are the requirements linear guidance systems have to meet today. However, they cannot all be met by one single product. For this reason, INA has developed two versions of ball type profiled rail units which can be installed in the same mounting space:
High dynamics and maximised load ratings
For these applications INA offers its heavy-duty KUVE..B series in a full complement version. The INA engineers have integrated many functions, such as a 10% larger lubricant reservoir, variable connection of lubricant ducts as well as steady, slight displacement force etc., into the units, yet managed to keep them compact. Moreover, it is also possible to use the new carriages on the existing guideway profile.
Low noise generation and high dynamics
Units of the low-noise KUVE..B (KT) series are characterised by separation of the individual rolling elements by spacers. Thanks to a new design of the ball recirculation system, the development of noise is considerably reduced, by ca. 50% compared to KUVE..B. At the same time, the INA engineers have managed to reduce the masses of the entire guidance system by ca. 15% compared to the heavy-duty series. This means that the low-noise version, KUVE..B (KT), is very suitable for applications requiring high traverse speeds, high dynamics and as low a noise level as possible.
