1 Roller-MONORAIL MR Product features Roller-MONORAIL MR 4 High rigidity. production and use of roller-type anti-friction guideways in the development of the MONORAIL. These properties result in higher machining rates while enhancing geometrical accuracy and surface quality of the machined workpieces. outstanding running smoothness and the total enclosure of the carriage are the main features of the MONORAIL guideway. Consequently the MONORAIL is a cost-effective anti-friction guideway which meets the challenge presented by modern machine design. Our highly rigid MONORAIL provides improved vibration behavior. great dynamic and static load carrying capacity. smaller vibration amplitudes and thus extends tool life. • 37 . SCHNEEBERGER has systematically applied its many years of experience in the design.4.

This results in a substantially higher load carrying capacity and lower wear together with minimum rolling friction. the roller guideway has a flat and noticeably larger contact area.Linear guideways have a significant effect on the overall rigidity of a machine tool. • 38 . O-Geometry With the so-called O-arrangement of the guideway. Elastic Deformation Rigidity MR Load Load carrying capacity In contrast to the circular-arch ball guideway. The proven high rigidity of the MONORAIL is achieved by using rollers as rolling elements and by the optimization of the cross section of the carriage and the rail. by means of this a uniform and high absorption of forces from all directions and a high torque rigidity is achieved. a large internal spacing of supports is implemented. In conjunction with the roller running tracks offset by 90°.

The magneto-resistive measuring method
The measuring scale

A groove is machined into the MONORAIL
rail (1). After bonding into position (2) and
grinding of the magnetic strip, the production of the magnetic scale follows (3). The
hardened cover strip protects the magnetic
strip from mechanical and magnetic influences (4).

The measuring scale has two magnetized
tracks. The finely graduated incremental
track consists of poles with a width of
200 µm, that are alternately arranged in the
longitudinal direction. The reference track
for absolute position is provided by distance-coded reference marks.

In the event of a relative movement between the sensor and the measuring scale. the change in the field strength in the magneto-resistive sensor material gives a measurable change in the electric resistance. Due to the arrangement of the sickleshaped sensor elements. To enhance the accuracy.The sensor will work with a special magneto-resistive measuring process. The Wheatstone bridge design of the electric circuit for the sensor elements. MONORAIL AMS Construction of the sensor • 89 . There is an electronic compensation depending on the sensor gap and the signalamplitude. the signals of 102 individual gratings are averaged. Because the structure of the sensor is adapted to the magnetic graduation period. two sinusoidal signals with a 90° phase shift are obtained from the incremental magnetisation. means that influences due to temperature fluctuations. aging and external magnetic fields are minimal. All SCHNEEBERGER sensors have a contact measuring process. the influence of external magnetic fields is strongly suppressed and the adjustement is simplified.

Dimensioning

Basics

The demands for accuracy, surface quality and short machining times are becoming
increasingly stringent. This is why the anti-friction guideways in modern machine construction are selected according to permissible elastic deformation.
The following steps are therefore necessary for the dimensioning of anti-friction guideways.
– Determination of the external forces and moment loads
– Distribution of forces and moment loads acting on individual MONORAIL
carriages
– Preload and deformation determination
– Calculation of operational life
– Calculation of static reliability factor
The operational life is limited by material fatigue as well as by heavy wear of the rollingcontact surfaces caused by environmental influences.
The rolling contact of the surfaces causes material fatigue and therefore results in damage
to the track and rolling element (spalling). If the force acting on the rolling-contact surfaces
is known, the operational life can be calculated according to DIN ISO 281 or DIN 636.
The wear of the running surfaces is determined above all by the lubrication, by contamination with dirt, by the surface pressure and by the value of the relative movements of the
surfaces under load.

The operational life is calculated in the following example. Due to undeterminable factors,
there is no standard wear-life calculation procedure.
Operational life calculation

Determination of external forces and moments
The external forces acting on the guideway system are determined by the force components Fax, Fay, Faz with the force application coordinates Xa, Ya, Za. A mass m with the
acceleration components ax, ay, az causes the guideway system to be loaded by the inertia forces Fmx, Fmy, Fmz, which act at the center of gravity coordinates Xm, Ym, Zm.

Fmx = m  –ax
Fmy = m  –ay
Fmz = m  –az
The forces Fy, Fz acting at 90º to the longitudinal axis of the table are to be taken up
directly by the guideway sytem:
The longitudinal forces Fx are transmitted by the longitudinal drive:
External moments Max, May and Maz can also act:
The external forces Fax, Fay, Faz and inertia forces Fmx, Fmy, Fmz in combination with their
respective points of actions Xa, Ya, Za or Xm, Ym, Zm, also result in moments:
The point of action of the force of the longitudinal drive Ysp, Zsp affects the moments acting on the guideway system.
Distribution of forces and moment loads on the individual MONORAIL
carriages
The longitudinal carriage spacing K and lateral spacing Q are required to calculate
the side forces Fjy and compression-tension forces Fjz on each MONORAIL carriages
(j = 1…n).
The arrangement of carriage and guiderail in the axes must be taken into account.
Determination of preload and deformation
The MONORAIL preload is determined by the service conditions as well as the demands
made on the rigidity of the machine guideway.
Preloads V1, V2 or V3 increase not only the rigidity, they also additionally load the rollingcontact surfaces as long as the preload is effective.
The forces acting on the MONORAIL cause displacements which can be obtained from
the deformation diagrams in chapter 4.4 for MONORAIL MR, resp. 7.4 for MONORAIL BM.
Operational life calculation
The factors affecting the operational life are the forces acting on MONORAIL carriages,
selected preload, dynamic loading capacity C and event probability.
If constant forces act over the entire translation distance, the operational life is calculated
with the equivalent force Pj. However, if varying forces are expected, the dynamic equivalent loading must be used.

Equivalent force P
The equivalent force Pj for each MONORAIL (j = 1…n) is required for the operational life
calculation. The values of the force components Fjy and Fjz acting on each MONORAIL
carriage are added algebraically to obtain the effective Fj:
Fj =  Fjy    Fjz 
In the case of applications, in which the MONORAIL-carriages are subject to loads comprising
both forces and torques, e.g., in the case of single carriages or systems with only one rail, the
dynamic equivalent force Fj is determined in accordance with the following formula:
Fj =  Fjy    Fjz  + C •  Mj 
MQL

C = dynamic loading capacity (N)
MQL = admissible dynamic longitudinal-,
resp., transverse torque (Nm)
Mj = dynamic torque loading (Nm)

The following formula can be used to calculate the approximate value of the equivalent
force Pj which actually acts on the rolling-contact surfaces:
Pj = FVorsp + 2/3  Fj

for Fj  3  FVorsp

Pj = Fj

for Fj  3  FVorsp

Dynamic equivalent loading
If force P is not constant, the equivalent force P in the step-loading mode can be calculated for each MONORAIL with the following formula (the respective force Pjk is constant
for each partial translation distance Ik):

Dynamic loading capacity C
The loading capacity figures for anti-friction guideways are based on the principles specified by the ISO for calculation of rolling-contact bearings (DIN ISO 281).
Dynamic loading capacity is the loading which results in a nominal operational life corresponding to a translation distance of 10 000 m provided that the loading due to mass and direction is unchanged and the line of influence acts vertically on the rolling-contact bearing unit.
Comparison of loading capacities
Other suppliers often indicate their loading capacities for a translation distance of 50 000 m.
These values according to JIS Standard are above the values according to DIN ISO. The
recalculation of the loading capacities is done as follows:
C50 = 1.23  C100
C50 = 1.26  C100
