  • Linear Slide Tables

    A linear motion bearing is a device that is used to permit the movement of a specific entity in a linear way. Linear slides are devices which are used to provide precision motion along linear planes for many different types of automated machinery for the purposes of pushing, pulling or positioning. Using ball bearings, or cylindrical bearings, linear slides are able to move with low friction and energy expenditure. An application that needs linear motion to operate is a linear slide table, like the ones found in fabrication. The two...

  • An Inspector Gadget Like Van

    Growing up I had a very good friend who was restricted to a wheel chair, although I didn't know it was a restriction while we were small but was rather jealous of his Inspector Gadget chair, with all it's cool buttons, speeds and so forth, He also had phenomenal personality and spirit, which never made anyone who knew him think he was less able to do everything we were able to do. I was particularly jealous of his mom's van, which was equipped with a special elevator that came out...

  • Positioning Stages: The Maneuverable Table

    Tabletops are one of those necessities that we may think we can do without but are actually vital to us in industrial, commercial and residential contexts alike. Although meals do not require a table to be eaten, a restaurant without tables would be a strange place indeed. Outside of the residential spectrum, office buildings must have table space for computers, phones and a center to create a meeting space around. Industrial contexts cannot get machining done without a variety of tabletop options available to steady the material being machined. Also,...

  • Roller Tables: Heavy Load Capacity

    If you have a heavy duty application that requires a linear slide that can handle some serious weight, then the roller table is the device you are looking for. Able to push, pull and position objects or machine parts with precise maneuverability and controlled speeds when attached to an electric motor, the roller table is a more complex version of the simple but essential roller slide. The roller slide is a basic linear slide model, utilizing a series of cylindrically shaped metal pieces within a basic framework called liner rails....

  • Finding the Right Roller Table Material

    Roller tables are a type of positioning stage. The provide low-friction movement to heavy and/or awkward loads. They can be found in industrial automation equipment, fiber optic systems, semiconductors and material handling industries. When choosing the perfect roller table, there are many things that need to be taken into consideration. One of the decisions that must be made is what material it should be made of. The material will determine how well the product will perform in its application. One popular choice is aluminum. Aluminum is a popular choice because...

Industry Information

Roller Tables

Roller tables, or positioning stages, are motorized linear slides that are used to provide low-friction precision movement to heavy or cumbersome loads. Industrial automation equipment, fiber optic systems, semiconductor and material handling industries all use roller tables to some degree in their applications.

Roller tables are manufactured to be highly accurate and able to withstand a heavy load capacity while pushing, pulling or positioning. Common types include low profile, heavy duty and crossed linear rails tables. Using roller slides, roller tables are able to have single or multiple axis with shafts and tables in order to maximize direction and control. Roller tables are high precision pieces of equipment often moved by driving mechanisms, mechanical or electrical, allowing for even massive loads to be moved fairly easily. A roller table is composed of a linear base and an attached moving carriage. The carriage houses the roller bearings or cylindrical bearings that allow for the low friction motion between the linear rails and the platform, or table. Cylindrical bearings result in the least amount of mechanical noise and so are the most commonly used bearing in roller tables.

Aluminum is a material commonly used for the fabrication of roller table components as it is able to withstand the force from heavy loads and maintain its structure. Stainless steel is also commonly used, especially in applications where corrosion resistance is an important element of operations. Tables can be custom designed in terms of size, load capacity, freedom of movement and material based on which application the table is intended to be used for. Crossed roller linear rails provide greater control and precision and in roller table applications, the rails may be crossed at a 45° angle between the base and the carriage. Roller cages can be added to a table to help balance loads and prevent slipping during movement. For some applications, covers or other shields can be attached to the linear slides to prevent debris or dust getting inside the sliding mechanism and obstructing motion. However, the slides will likely need to be disassembled and cleaned from time to time to ensure optimum performance of the roller table. Roller tables are a cost-efficient method of moving equipment or improving the efficiency within an operation. The design can be simple to manufacture and operate, and the driving mechanism for roller tables can move a heavy load with a relatively small power output, making it further cost-efficient to use roller tables.
