White Paper: Eliminating Artifact Lines with Consistent Linear Motion

SPONSORED BY:

There is great need for linear guidance systems that provide consistent repeatable performance in the field of large format digital image scanning such as architectural drawings, mapping, and medical x-rays. In addition, output devices continue to increase in resolution, making the need for clean scans and output without the interference of artifact lines essential.

This white paper compares data on a traditional type of slide built from components versus our Uni-Guide linear guide system. We discuss the basics of linear slide accuracy and the factors contributing to consistent torque, along with a comparison of slide options, and a rail report and analysis. The one-piece rails of Uni-Guide have an inherent accuracy built into the design that cannot be duplicated with the built-up components of traditional dual rail systems. This helps to eliminate tolerance stack up, dampen vibration and shock loads, and make installation easy.
