Linear guides in large embroidery machines

Short stroke application in the embroidering process: No problem with INA’s high load capacity ball type profiled rail units

For many years now, important European textile machine manufacturers have relied on close cooperation with us as a supplier of complete systems. And as they have told us, it is not only our wide range of products we have to offer, but also the expert advice we provide for applications and designs.

Linear guides in large embroidery machines are a good example of this. Here, innovative INA products are used for many of the elementary functions – simply because they are true cost-effective solutions for the manufacturer.

Extreme: Four row ball type profiled rail unit KUVE for shuttle drives can withstand extreme accelerations (up to 20 g).

Reliable: INA KUVE can also be used for frame positioning during threading – reliable compensation of micro-vibrations that occur.

Fast: Track roller linear guides LF for moving the embroidery frame in the x and y directions – high dynamics for motion and functional processes are indispensable.

In every embroidery machine, supports must also be provided for rotary motion. Precision ball bearings and smooth operating needle roller bearings for multi-drive units are only two current examples from our textile bearing product line.
