Two steel shafts are mounted and aligned on the common base, therefore eliminating the alignment process required for 2 separate shafts. The pre-drilled base mounting holes in the support allow for easy customer mounting. Each 6, 12, 18 and 24 inch aluminum support has 2 threaded holes at one end to assist in leveling the assembly. The TRSA comes in standard lengths from 6 to 192 inches and with shaft dimensions from 0.50 to 2.00 inches.
LinTech's TRCA series, TWIN RAIL carriage assemblies are pre-engineered assemblies which have either SLBO or DLBO pillow blocks mounted to a 6061-T6 aluminum, black anodized machined plate. The pillow blocks are pre-aligned and doweled to the carriage plate to match LinTech's TRSA series shaft assemblies. The use of a TRCA carriage assembly and a TRSA shaft assembly reduces the process of mounting and aligning 2 shafts and pillow blocks. Each carriage surface is machined which allows for accurate mounting of customer loads, and are available with mounting holes with stainless steel inserts. Carriage assemblies are provided with pillow blocks for shaft diameters from 0.50 to 2.00 inches and come in lengths from 6 to 30 inches.
LinTech's SLBC and SLBO series have one linear bearing and 2 wiper seals per pillow block and are self-aligning in all directions. The SLBO and DLBO series have a screw for pre-load adjustment to reduce the shaft and bearing clearance. Lintech's DLBC and DLBO series have 2 linear bearings in one aluminum pillow block, separated by a wick that serves as an oil reservoir. Each pillow block housing provides a flat top surface for load mounting and alignment.
