Linear Drives Trainer


Linear Drives Trainer, #221

This versatile, bench top device helps facilitate training in the design, function, installation and alignment of modern linear drive components.

Fabricated from steel and aluminum, this device combines a variety of common industrial components and installation scenarios in one assembly.

Provision has been made for shimming elements to establish level and parallel shaft conditions. Additionally, various applications for converting rotary to linear motion can be demonstrated, hands-on.

This device will help make training in linear drive component terminology, applications, installation and troubleshooting more realistic, productive and effective.
