Curved Linear Rail Systems and Applications

Most of the machines being manufactured today have only two types of motion, radial motion, and linear motion. Linear motion is usually obtained from machine elements with radial motion. For example, a servo motor is a radial motion element, but when used with a ball screw, it converts radial motion to linear motion. Linear slide products are also linear motion elements. However, they often require radial drive equipment to move. But, not all radial motion equipment is intended to create linear motion. For example, the turntable equipment in a milk bottling plant works only to produce radial motion.
