Motion Control – Use FDA Compliant Off-the-Shelf Linear Motion Components!

Motion Control – FDA Compliant Components

To: OEMs “Tooling Up” for Urgently Needed Medical Products! Use FDA Compliant Off-the-Shelf Linear Motion Components!

motion control FDA compliant components

 

LM76

E. Longmeadow, MA — Motion Control Components – Linear Motion – In dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic many companies have volunteered or been requested to produce urgently needed medical products such as: Masks, gowns, and ventilators. “Tooling Up” quickly to produce medical grade products for some companies can bring challenges. In addition to needing FDA compliant materials that will be used in the actual masks, gowns, and ventilators, the tooling used to manufacture these products may also need to meet FDA compliance standards. Depending on the product being manufactured, the tooling may need to be: Washed down using caustic chemicals, cleaned with high pressure steam, or sterilized with high Intensity Ultra Violet light or radiation.

Ordering custom FDA compliant linear motion slides and XYZ stages can result in long delays. As an alternative, many companies have linear motion slides in stock for immediate delivery, however, they may not be FDA compliant. In many cases it is the bearings that are not in compliance. LM76 manufactures several types of FDA compliant linear bearings and pillow blocks that are drop-in-replacements for existing bearings. FDA compliant bearings and pillow blocks from LM76 will not trap contaminating debris and can be thoroughly sanitized following Sanitation StandardOperating Procedures (SSOPs). SSOPs are detailed schedules and procedures specifying what to clean, how to clean, how often to clean, and the record keeping used for monitoring.

A helpful component selection guide from LM76, “Linear Bearings, 6 Simple Steps – FDA Compliance, Wash Down Compliance,” details the linear motion components available from LM76 that are FDA/UDSA/3A-Dairy compliant. Included are: Foodstream electroless nickel plated pillow blocks, PTFE lined stainless steel bearings, ceramic coated linear bearings, self-aligning corrosion resistant linear ball bearings, and Thomson® Super SmartTM corrosion resistant, self-aligning, high load linear ball bearings, and solid ETX pillow block/bearings. Shafting to compliment the type of bearing selected includes: Class L Stainless 303/304/316, 440C case hardened stainless, Rc 60 case hardened steel with an Armoloy coating and also Rc78 Class L for enhanced hardness and wear resistance. End blocks and shaft supports that have a ceramic or electroless nickel coating are also available, as well as new ETX Scraper Seals that prevents intrusion of contaminates adding another line of defense.

LM76 also designs and custom builds linear slides from Stainless Steel and other FDA wash down compliant materials.

The Engineering Edge – Application – ETX Pillow Blocks!

the engineering edge application

This was a troublesome application. This system is completely submerged in radioactive water at a nuclear power plant. So no Teflon, no seals, no lubrication – nothing that will degrade in a radioactive environment. The majority of components are stainless steel – except for our ceramic coated/supported shafting and our special, designed for this particular application/never made before, ETX self-lubricating linear blocks. As you see, there is a circular saw which cuts metal-mesh filters which need to be replaced every few months. A big solution for a pressing application.

“New Design” Pillow Blocks from LM76!

Engineering edge - new design pillow block

When our customer, a major European manufacturer of machinery for the paper industry, informed us they were having failures with linear bearings in their robotic paper slicing system, we listened. As a robotic arm swings around (360 degrees) it slices the paper to length. After cutting the paper to length, a linear table below indexes new paper forward for cutting. After making the desired cut, the blade then passes through sharpeners below – located in the indexing table – where the linear bearings are located. As the blade passes through the sharpeners, it deposits a fine metal dust on the shafts. As the bearings pass over the shafts, the metallic grit invades the bearing – eventually leading to bearing failure. Because there are 32 pillow – 50mm – pillow block bearing assemblies, change-out is no small matter. LM76 designed an End Cap/Beryllium Scraper Seal kit which is retained in both ends of the pillow block. We were able to cut downtime by 90%. The customer is extremely pleased they found an answer. But the answer was not found in any catalog, it had to be designed and manufactured.

The Engineering Edge – Application – Trunnion Grinding Slide for Oil Field

motion control grinding slide

 

Motion Control – Application Story – We are shipping another slide today for the oil patch. When Weir Oil and Gas called with a slide application that required special engineering, LM76 was all ears – as it was right up our alley. This slide is a Trunnion Grinding Slide which has a 56HP motor running at 3500 RPM mounted to the Y Axis – with a 12″ grinding wheel attached. The X Axis (52″ Stroke) runs on 440C stainless linear ball bearings that have special beryllium copper scraper seal cartridges while the Y Axis (4″ Stroke) employs profile rail guides with double scraper seal kits. Our customer did not want protective bellows so we had to ensure grinding debris would not cause bearing or screw/nut failures. On both axis, we employed our proprietary “Polymatrix, Double Preloaded Nuts” as opposed to recirculating ball nuts. Why LM76? Good question…we were the only company that got back to them with a thoughtful solution.

Motion Control – FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy Compliant Linear Motion Components

Motion Control - Linear Motion - Fluidline Linear Bearings

 

Motion Control – Linear Motion – LM76 FluidLine Motion Control Linear/Rotary bearings are FDA/USDA & 3A Dairy Complaint. They are also caustic wash down inert. FluidLine bearings one piece construction has benefits over traditional Teflon Composite lined aluminum bearings: if you have a wear situation, Teflon Composite Bearings have a .035″ Teflon Composite Liner. Once you wear through the liner, you are into the aluminum shell. FluidLine bearings will simply wear more and more until they are too sloppy and can replaced at your convenience. They are also less expensive in volume because there are fewer manufacturing operations. We can easily design and produce special ID’s, OD’s, Lengths and features such as flanges.

Pegasus Series 1 Linear Bearings – For When A Linear Bearing Simply Cannot Fail!

Linear Motion Control - LM76 Pegasus Linear Ball Bearing!

LM76

E. Longmeadow, MA Motion — Control Components – Linear Motion – LM76 has developed the most corrosion resistant linear bearing available. In space, deep under the sea, or in the harshest environments when there can be no “Plan B,” Pegasus Series 1 Linear Ball Bearings can be counted on to perform. In some applications linear bearings will not move for days, weeks, months or even years, however, when called on to perform they must work as if they just came out of the box. LM76’s Pegasus Series 1 Linear Bearings feature Silicon Nitride (SiNi) Ceramic Balls in a shell with retainer and end caps all made from 440 Stainless Steel and then ArmorloyTM coated.

Silicon Nitride was selected for the balls because it is: 40% lighter than steel, inert to chemicals (vapors, sea water, caustic washing and sterilizing solutions), capable of higher speeds and higher loads: (RC78 hardness), FDA compliant (used in surgical instruments), and does not corrode or support electrolysis.

The shell, bearing retainer and end caps are made from 440 Stainless Steel and coated with Armoloy TDCTM(Thin Dense Chrome). Armoloy is a hard (78Rc), coating with a micro-nodular surface texture. The coating’s nodular finish reduces the amount of surface area in contact with the SiNi balls reducing friction and extending life.

Pegasus Linear Bearings are available 2 series (closed and open), and in 4 sizes (1.000″, 1.250″, 1.500″ and 2.000″). Dynamic load rating for these bearings are: 1.000″ 220 lbs, 1.250″ 352 lbs, 1.500″ 490 lbs, and 2.000″ 858 lbs. Bearings are designed for zero clearance on Class L linear shafting. For maximum performance we recommend LM76 Case Hardened 440 Stainless Steel shafting with ArmorloyTM coating.

Motion Control – FDA/USDA/3A-Dairy Compliant ETX Scraper Seals for Linear Bearings Used In Food Processing Applications!

Linear Motion Components - LM76 ETX-Seals!

LM76

E. Longmeadow, MA Motion —  – Linear Motion – LM76 has introduced FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy compliant, snap-in ETX Scraper Seals for linear bearings. Machined from Ertalyte® PET-P, ETX Scraper Seals have high strength, excellent wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, and excellent dimensional stability at higher temperatures than seals from other materials. Designed with a slight interference fit between bearing ID and shaft, ETX Scraper Seals prevents contaminates and debris from migrating beneath the seal as it scrapes the shaft surface. Ertalyte® PET-P’s low frictional characteristics have little impact on drive force. These FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy compliant scraper seals are ideal for: Pharmaceutical, medical, food, and dairy processing applications.

EXT Scraper Seals feature a high continuous service temperature up to 210°F (100°C) and offer good chemical and abrasion resistance, low moisture absorption, and resistance to staining. These linear bearing scraper seals keep bearings free from debris and bacterial contamination, are not affected by biological fluids, mild acids, can be washed down with cleaning agents, and steam cleaned. Snap-in EXT Scraper Seals are available for closed linear bearings, and closed pillow and flange blocks.

Linear Motion Components - LM76 ETX-Scraper Seals!

LM76 also manufacturers a broad variety of FDA & USDA compliant bearings and shafting, in inch sizes of .25 inches to 1.5 inches, and a FDA & USDA compliant profile rail and slide system that can easily be integrated into new and existing applications. The bearing options include: Self-lubricating FDA & USDA compliant Teflon® composite bearings in a 304 stainless steel shell, and lower cost bearings with a ceramic coated shell and FDA & USDA compliant liner. Bearings are available in closed and open configurations, and are drop-in replacements for all inch sized linear ball bearings.
