The linear module is a mechanical structure that provides linear motion. It can be used horizontally or vertically. It can also be combined into a specific motion mechanism--that is, multi-axis motion commonly referred to as XY axis, XYZ axis, etc. in the automation industry mechanism.
LIMON linear module is usually used with a power motor. It can be used to automatically reciprocate the work piece by installing other required work pieces on the block to form a complete conveying motion device and setting a suitable motor forward and reverse program. Thereby achieving the purpose of mass production and intensive production of equipment.
Our company's linear module products are widely used in automated production equipment, dispensing, painting, picking and placing.

What are the main types of linear module?
· Belt driven type linear module

· Ball screw driven type linear module
The positioning accuracy is ±0.01mm, maximum speed 1m/s.
· Linear motor driven type linear module
How does the linear module works?
The name of linear module is also varied, including linear unit, electric cylinder, slide table and mechanical arm. Although the name is different, its working principle is the same.
It can be divided into belt driven, ball screw driven type and linear motor driven type, and the working principle of first two are the same. They are the modular product which integrates servo motor, screw and timing belt, which convert the servo motor rotation movement into linear motion, at the same time, convert the best advantage of servo motor: speed control precision, precise control of speed, revolution and torque into precise speed, position and thrust control of the actuator, and finally achieve high-precision linear motion. For linear motor driven type, it converts electric energy into linear motion mechanical energy without any intermediate conversion mechanism.
What is the difference between repeatability and accuracy of these three types linear module?
· Belt driven type linear module (±0.05)
· Ball screw driven type linear module(±0.01)
· Linear motor driven type linear module(±0.001)
How to choose different types of linear module?
· If general force is not large, long stroke, precision requirements and relatively high, it can choose to use linear motor driven type linear module.
· If the force is larger, the stroke is shorter, the precision requirement is higher, it can choose to use the ball screw driven type linear module.
· If the force is general, the stroke is long, the accuracy requirements is not high, it can choose to use the belt driven type linear module.
What is a linear module used for?
Linear modules combine highly sophisticated movements with high rigidity. They can be easily installed and are generally designed for average loads. In contrast, linear stages are especially suitable for moment loads due to the structure of the guide system. The various motorised versions can be used in many sectors of conveyor technology and automation.
