Motion Control – Use FDA Compliant Off-the-Shelf Linear Motion Components!

Motion Control – FDA Compliant Components

To: OEMs “Tooling Up” for Urgently Needed Medical Products! Use FDA Compliant Off-the-Shelf Linear Motion Components!

motion control FDA compliant components

 

LM76

E. Longmeadow, MA — Motion Control Components – Linear Motion – In dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic many companies have volunteered or been requested to produce urgently needed medical products such as: Masks, gowns, and ventilators. “Tooling Up” quickly to produce medical grade products for some companies can bring challenges. In addition to needing FDA compliant materials that will be used in the actual masks, gowns, and ventilators, the tooling used to manufacture these products may also need to meet FDA compliance standards. Depending on the product being manufactured, the tooling may need to be: Washed down using caustic chemicals, cleaned with high pressure steam, or sterilized with high Intensity Ultra Violet light or radiation.

Ordering custom FDA compliant linear motion slides and XYZ stages can result in long delays. As an alternative, many companies have linear motion slides in stock for immediate delivery, however, they may not be FDA compliant. In many cases it is the bearings that are not in compliance. LM76 manufactures several types of FDA compliant linear bearings and pillow blocks that are drop-in-replacements for existing bearings. FDA compliant bearings and pillow blocks from LM76 will not trap contaminating debris and can be thoroughly sanitized following Sanitation StandardOperating Procedures (SSOPs). SSOPs are detailed schedules and procedures specifying what to clean, how to clean, how often to clean, and the record keeping used for monitoring.

A helpful component selection guide from LM76, “Linear Bearings, 6 Simple Steps – FDA Compliance, Wash Down Compliance,” details the linear motion components available from LM76 that are FDA/UDSA/3A-Dairy compliant. Included are: Foodstream electroless nickel plated pillow blocks, PTFE lined stainless steel bearings, ceramic coated linear bearings, self-aligning corrosion resistant linear ball bearings, and Thomson® Super SmartTM corrosion resistant, self-aligning, high load linear ball bearings, and solid ETX pillow block/bearings. Shafting to compliment the type of bearing selected includes: Class L Stainless 303/304/316, 440C case hardened stainless, Rc 60 case hardened steel with an Armoloy coating and also Rc78 Class L for enhanced hardness and wear resistance. End blocks and shaft supports that have a ceramic or electroless nickel coating are also available, as well as new ETX Scraper Seals that prevents intrusion of contaminates adding another line of defense.

LM76 also designs and custom builds linear slides from Stainless Steel and other FDA wash down compliant materials.

About LM76

Founded in 1976, LM76 has been a leading designer/manufacturer of linear bearings, slides and linear motion systems. LM76 is renowned for its industry leading Minuteman PTFE Composite linear bearings. LM76 is a leading supplier of precision linear shafting: RC60, 300 Series Stainless Steel, and ceramic-coated aluminum shafting.

Motion Control – Custom Linear Mechanisms

Motion Control – Custom Linear Mechanisms

Custom Linear Mechanisms from Steinmeyer …

Welcome to Where Precision Is.  You Can Turn to Steinmeyer for Design and Assembly of Custom Linear Mechanisms for your Precision Positioning Systems
Modern mechatronic systems consist of numerous precision components that must be assembled in complex configurations. Here, every detail counts.Steinmeyer Mechatronik, a division of August Steinmeyer GmbH, offers design and assembly services for a variety of demanding applications.We have deep experience in medical devices, laboratory instrumentation, optical inspection & semiconductor positioning. Our engineers can implement your finished design or optimize your concept.

For Example …

Highly Stiff Linear Axis for Optics

Construction of a flying telescope

The Max Planck Institute has built a helium-balloon borne telescope in the Sunrise project. This telescope hung from the balloon by means of a rope and ascended to heights of up to 24000m. The atmosphere is very thin at this altitude, and the conditions are similar to those in space. Such a balloon mission, however, costs only a fraction of a rocket launch with a conventional satellite, and represents an interesting alternative to space travel. Since the telescope hangs only on a rope, it bends due to gravity. Spherical mirrors were used, so that the bend of the optics could be compensated by simply shifting the optical components. The correction movements were achieved by the positioning systems shown here.

System with short strokes and excenter drive

The so-called M3 mechanism adjusts the tertiary mirror in the longitudinal direction and consists of a conventional carriage system and ball screw drive. For the M2 positioning system, which adjusts the secondary mirror in three translational degrees of freedom, a very short-stroke system based on an excenter drive was developed. Both positioning systems are driven by high-transmission miniature stepper motors with additional encoder feedback.

Motion Control – The Engineering Edge – Application – ETX Pillow Blocks!

motion control components

motion control - the engineering edge application

Motion Control Application – This was a troublesome application. This system is completely submerged in radioactive water at a nuclear power plant. So no Teflon, no seals, no lubrication – nothing that will degrade in a radioactive environment. The majority of components are stainless steel – except for our ceramic coated/supported shafting and our special, designed for this particular application/never made before, ETX self-lubricating linear blocks. As you see, there is a circular saw which cuts metal-mesh filters which need to be replaced every few months. A big solution for a pressing application.

Motion Control – Six-Axis Linear and Rotary Positioning Stage!

H2W Technologies Six Axis Linear Motion Rotary Positioning Stage

Linear motion H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA —– Linear Motion Control – The SRS-080-10-020-01-3EXRTS is a six-axis positioning stage that consists of three rotary motors, with encoders, each mounted to three independently moving linear axis. It is ideal for applications that require independent multiple motions on a single travel plane.

Each linear axis uses a H2W brushless linear motor BLDM-D06 to generate a continuous/peak force of 24.8 lbs [110 N]/74.5 lbs [331 N] with each moving table capable of a total stroke length of 82 in [2083 mm]. Each linear axis has an independent non-contact 1.0-micron resolution encoder head reading a single encoder scale allowing for precise positioning using any multi-axis motion controller. Each moving table is guided by a rigid recirculating ball linear bearing block sharing a single linear bearing rail.

Each rotary axis consists of a standard 34-frame rotary stepper motor with a 40,000 counts/rev resolution encoder. Using a state-of-the-art motion control electronics package provided by H2W, each rotary stepper motor can operate as a 2-phase rotary brushless motor. Each motor can generate a continuous torque of 27.1 oz-in [3.06 N-m]. Each rotary axis is removable, which, in turn, reduces the moving weight of the linear axis to which it was mounted. This allows for larger payloads on each linear axis.

The entire stage is assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion, thus reducing the overall weight of the system. It has end-of-travel rubber bumper stops, a home positioning sensor, end-of-travel-sensors, and custom mounting holes are available upon request. There are also provisions that allow customer cables to be routed within the cable carriers.

Features:

  • Multiple linear motors on single magnet track Combined linear and rotary displacement
  • Rotary axis is capable of full 360-degree rotation
  • Ability to run closed loop rotary stepper motors
  • Rotary axis can be easily removed
  • Six axis of coordinated motion
  • Assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion

Application Story – FDA/Washdown System Excels with Special Linear Motion Shaft Assembly from LM76!

Linear Motion - Application Story - Dairy

LM76

E. Longmeadow, MA – — Linear Motion – Application Story – Dairy machinery manufacturers are under intense scrutiny by FDA inspectors when it comes to FDA material and caustic washdown compliance. Recently, LM76 was called by a large US dairy packaging company to review a problematic portion of their filling line. After each shift, the filling line is washed-down, has a caustic foaming agent applied to kill bacteria and then is final rinsed. The caustic foaming agent was destroying – literally eating – the aluminum shaft supports while shafting exhibited pitting and showed signs of minor corrosion. Additionally, there were areas where product got trapped and these locations were havens for bacterial growth. Because this system was in-place and our customer was the end-user, LM76 engineers had to use direct drop-in replacement com¬ponents. What to do?

First, we decided to forgo the original bearing system that used 440c stainless linear ball bearings running on 440c hardened shafting. After reviewing loads and speeds we determined that our stainless FDA Compliant, self-lubricating linear bearings would do the job. By choosing sliding friction bearings, we were able to switch the less corrosion resistant 440c with a better 316 stainless shafting while eliminating greasing of the linear ball bearings. To increase shaft hardness, corrosion resistance and decrease “Stick/Slip” of the sliding bearings, we applied an Armoloy coating. This coating raises the shaft hardness from Rb25 to Rc78. Additionally, both the 316 stainless and the coating are FDA compliant. Along with enhanced hardness, corrosion resistance and FDA compliance, this coating has an inherent lubricity that aids in lowering “Stick/Slip”. “Stick/Slip” is a condition inherent in sliding linear bear¬ings. It takes a greater force to move a sleeve bearing linear system from static position than it does to maintain dynamic motion. Thus any assistance in lowering this value is meaningful. Now that we had the correct shafting, we turned our attention to the aluminum shaft support Here we made 2 design decisions:

1. We applied a ceramic coating to the aluminum “T” support. This coating is FDA compliant, is file hard (resists scratching) and is highly corrosion resistant.

2. To enhance system flushing to remove trapped product that could produce harmful bacteria, we segmented the support system to allow for proper evacuation of all washdown solutions and debris.

Linear Motion – How Do You Move Articles of Antiquity?

Linear Motion Application – How Do You Move Articles of Antiquity?

Very Carefully With A High Load Rail System from LM76!

Linear Motion - Moving Articles of Antiquity using LM76 Rail System

LM76 - Linear Motion

E. Longmeadow, MA – — The Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) has to move articles of antiquity from one location to another. In this instance, they are moving a 5000 year old relief (hieroglyphics) weighing 8000 pounds to a new location in the Museum. Here is a frontal photo of the Relief from The Tomb of Senenuka.

Part of wall from tomb of Senenuka; nine stones fitting together and including two niches; lower left piece smooth limestone; upper far left preliminary black ink sketch; right of this sketch is a complete relief showing two seated figures; central piece has large scene of seated male on the left and other smaller male figure to the right; upper far right male figure relief outline; left of this again a scene of two seated figures at a table.

Senenuka Time of Khufu or Khafre (Maybe Dyn 5?) Overseer of the Pyramid-town of Khufu, Director of King’s wad-priests, Boundary official of a settlement, etc.

The MFA contracted CBI Consulting of Boston to design the frame and fixturing. Craig Barnes, an award winning architectural engineer called Mike Quinn of LM76 to review the linear motion application. Over the course of several weeks, LM76 and design partner Todd Kanipe designed a telescoping, high load roller/linear motion rail system that won approval. According to CBI’s Keith Bouchard, the linear rail system moves very smoothly and so far meets the expectations of this program.”

Linear Motion Application – According to MFA Antiquity Specialist Jean Louis Lachevere, “All of these moves present very real dangers to the artifact being transported. In this case, we have a 8000 pound relief which already has its problems due to age and the fact that it is limestone ( limestone is very vulnerable to the atmosphere ).” Seen from the front, the relief is straight. From the back, much of the top back is gone. Thus, the back of the relief has to be plastered so the back is flat. Pins are inserted to further reinforce the relief and then it is tipped on its back. It is then moved to its new atmospherically controlled display case. LM76’s design is used in the transfer from the dolly to the mounting rails and restraints in the display case. This 36” motion is fraught with things that can go wrong. One of the considerations is the possibility of an earthquake…any problem conceivable is taken into account.
