Whitepaper: How to Select the Ideal Linear Bearing for Your Medical Application

Executive Summary:
In linear motion systems, performance starts with the bearing system. Engineers often underestimate the importance of these components and leave their design until last. Such delays can be a major problem, particularly if the machine layout doesn’t include space for a bearing that can deliver the accuracy, resolution, and repeatability required for the application. Designers need to understand their degrees of design freedom and take into account all trade-offs before specifying a bearing. In this white paper, we will review what medical and biomedical device designers need to know about their application, their design, and their bearing options in order to make the optimal choice for their performance requirements and budget.
