Linear Motion Systems

item International first introduced linear motion to the Machine Building Kit System in 1988. This dynamic section has since expanded to include a variety of high-quality extruded aluminum profiles, components and comprehensive linear motion systems. From light duty to heavy duty, with travel of a few inches to over 100 feet, and loads of a few ounces to thousands of pounds... the item Machine Building Kit System consists of a wide range of dynamic components for MB Kit Systems’ engineers to select from when designing a mechanical solution for your next linear motion project.

item International’s initial breakthrough into linear motion revolutionized how belt driven linear actuators are approached. By taking advantage of the high straightness tolerance of the Line 8 extruded aluminum profiles, item International designed Shaft Clamp Profile enabling the installation of guide shafts into the standard t-slot grooves. This modularity is not only convenient for those looking to add motion capabilities to an existing frame, though it is particularly useful when designing and constructing large support structures for linear gantry applications.

Original equipment manufacturers throughout an array of industries have partnered with MB Kit Systems to design and integrate linear motion directly into the structural support of machines. By taking advantage of MB Kit Systems’ no-cost engineering support, machine manufacturers can receive a comprehensive mechanical solution from one source, saving time and money without sacrificing quality.

item International’s engineers in Germany are constantly innovating new product offerings for the entire Machine Building Kit System. Two recent linear actuator additions include the compact and comprehensive KLE & KRF systems. The KLE & KRF offer easy belt-driven linear actuator solutions that are ideal for tight spaces without sacrificing precise movement.  With traditional belt driven linear actuator systems and ball screw linear actuators, we can build a tailored linear motion system by utilizing the extruded aluminum profiles and components. Learn more about our capabilities in belt-driven linear actuators.

Allow our in-house engineering group the opportunity to propose mechanical linear motion solutions, exclusively utilizing item’s Machine Building Kit System. Common parameters for linear actuator applications include: load (and any off-set load), thrust load, max speed, acceleration, any incline, structural support details (fully supported or free-span?), carriage configuration, or any pertinent details concerning the operating environment. Provide us with the motor make and model and we’ll include the necessary adapter plate machining to provide you with a turnkey linear motion system that is plug and play ready.
