Software facilitates linear drive selection
UH5 software from Uhing Company is said to enable rapid analysis of linear motion application requirements to assure correct size selection of Uhing rolling ring linear drives.
OEM designers may submit linear motion application data by telephone or using forms online. Based on application criteria such as travel distance, weight of payload to be moved and desired ramp up time, tech support specialists use the software program to calculate required side thrust, linear travel speed and other useful technical and performance data. Drive selection criteria are calculated in seconds including shaft rotational speed, drive torque, power requirements and shaft sag.
