April 19, 2018 – Bosch Rexroth announced the latest version of the Linear Motion Designer. The update is designed to enhance user guidance, databases and additional calculations for the dimensioning of Rail Systems and Screw Drives.
When dimensioning the mechanical components for linear movements, the users first enter process data, such as dynamics, masses, and forces. They can also specify the required life cycle. The tool provides instructions for optimum dimensioning. The Linear Motion Designer has recently been updated with calculations that round off dimensioning: Algorithms assess the maximum drive torque at the screw journal as well as the load rating of the end bearing.. After the dimensioning is complete, the user will have checked the drive train dimensions technically as well.
The Linear Motion Designer is an integral part of the digital engineering and procurement chain from Rexroth. Once dimensioning is complete, the user can skip directly to the configurator to obtain a CAD model. The data is automatically saved and does not need to be reentered manually. Further detailed information on the upgrade can be found in the online catalog.
