Guides arrived…

guides

From “Jiean Robot” in Zhejiang, China. “Zhejiang Sikete Technology co ltd”
Very easy to deal with Chinese company, good customer service, understood my needs, able to customize, and 7 day delivery once TT received. Well priced also, about USD400 each approx .

Photo is before the mounting plates go on to interface the rails and the extrusion.

Well I think I went a bit  too big !   NSS95 for the dual X rails and a smaller NSS75 for the Y gantry. The idea is X gantry has to support (and accelerate )  the Y guide and the gear.
Motion specs for the 75 and 95 are the same, just the loading. In hindsight, NSS75 all round would have been fine.  I went with the ’95 because they were only about 15% more .

75 guide is 7.5 kg, and ’95 is 12.5 kg. Lots of extra Aluminium plate…The 75 guide (Y) is 600 travel. The X is 800 travel,
The guides come with photo-interrupter limit and home switches and cables that can be put on either side of the guide.

There is 780 between the supports so the head on the Y can be quite wide (in Y) and still run full travel.

They are silky smooth… I have run them up with a motor and they scared me….
