Software calculates assembly line design

Bosch Rexroth has added to its Linear Motion Designer software for tailored assembly and production line design.
Bosch Rexroth has announced that developments in its Linear Motion Designer 2.1 will make it easier and quicker to design tailored assembly and production lines.

One development for the free-to-use linear motion design tool is easier design of profiled rail systems and screw drives independently. Another feature is that process data, such as dynamics, masses and forces, only need to be entered once. Users are able to configure and compare a range of variants in order to optimise the design for the specific application, both technically and economically.

The design program calculates a range of variants with one or several profiled rail systems and runner blocks as well as screw drives. The software also performs an automatic shift calculation for solutions with two guide rails. Additional process parameters, such as heat balance in planetary screw drives, displays, and pause times are also taken into account.

There is also a dedicated team available for on-site training.

The integrated function for entering lateral accelerations allows users to also design multi-axis profiled rail systems for up to three axes. An automatic deduction factor provides additional security in short stroke applications.

Users are able to define dynamic defaults over a flexible cycle comprising times and distances, for realistic modelling requirements.

The program generates a visualisation during calculation, which can then be converted to a format that matches customer-specific co-ordinate systems.

Once the software has been downloaded, a new function automatically updates the program and the integrated database of the company range of roller, ball and miniature rail systems as well as its ball and planetary screw drives.

The Linear Motion Designer 2.1 is available in German, English, French, Spanish and Chinese.
