SKF profile rail carriage LLTHC SUSlim-line model | short length | 15 - 35 mm
The SKF profile rail carriage LLTHC SU is a slim-line model carriage. The LLTHC SU is manufactured according to DIN 645-1 and therefore interchangeable in terms of construction within all DIN-complaint brands. Because of the X-arrangement the LLTHC SU is more self-aligning than most other profile rail carriages. This also contributes in the amount of friction being created between carriage and rail. The integrated lubricant reservoirs constantly re-lubricate the circulating balls to decrease maintenance. The LLTHC SU has an extra short length which makes it very suitable for some specific applications. However this does decrease its load ratings by a small amount. You can choose from three different preload and accuracy classes. The LLTHC SU is available in sizes between 15 and 35 mm.
If you are unsure which size or implementation is the most appropriate for you, the differences are written below. If you are still in doubt you can always contact us on +31 (0)85 – 0661258.
Preload and accuracy classes
To adjunct a profile rail guide to the specific demands of a given application, it is advisable to choose an appropriate preload. This will positively affect the operating behavior of the entire linear guidance system. Preload increases the stiffness of linear guides and thus reduces the deviation under load. You can choose between three different preload classes:
- T0 – Zero preload: For extremely smooth-running rail guide systems with low friction and low external influences. This preload class is only available in P5 and P3 accuracy calsses.
- T1 – Light preload: For precise rail guide systems with low external load and high requirements for overall stiffness
The Accuracy class define the maximum permissible tolerance range of rail system in terms of height, width and parallelism. This choice determines the positioning accuracy of the system within the application. There are three different accuracy classes available for each carriage:
- P5 – standard: ± 100 µm height- and ± 40 µm width tolerance.
- P3 – medium: ± 40 µm height- and ± 20 µm width tolerance.
- P1 – heigh: ± 20 µm height- and ± 10 µm width tolerance.
