We are interested in converting a X stage we have on stock, to move across Z axis.
We are looking for a friction based approach (samples attached), but we can consider other ideas too.
If you are to adopt the suggested (friction based approach), its important detailing the material, tolerances etc to be used. Due to application specific limitations, use of lubricants has to be VERY limited. However, target speeds and duty cycles are VERY limited too (max speed 1mm/sec), so heat dispersion will not be an issue
For those interested in supporting the linear motion with a linear slide - please use NDN 05-10.05
Please note that the motor to be used, as mentioned, is the linear motor appearing in the files attached - please don't use rotary or other motors, or position the linear motor vertically.
