Integral V™ Technology 80/20

http://www.pacific-bearing.com/IntegralVTechnology.aspx

Integral V™ Technology (IVT) is available in several variations; including bolt-on, integrated, modular bolt-on, snap-in and compact guides. Bolt-on uses parallel linear V-Guides to adapt to any mounting surface for assured accuracy and precision. Integrated IVT uses T-slot structural aluminum framing integrated with V-races. Modular bolt-on is perfect for moving door/panel applications by easily installing into existing framing. Snap-in is installed by “snapping” into Bosch®, 80/20®, Item®, and Parker® structural framing without using any mounting components. Compact Guides provide a cost-effective alternative to competing profile rail technology while still ensuring stable, smooth and accurate linear guidance. Custom configurations are also available to meet our customers’ specific needs.

Just came across this from another source.
Anybody work with this yet and have any idea of how the cost compares with other options?

I got one of the extensions quoted a while back. The price is not too bad, but would add about $50-$60 to the total of my design. I think my solution is already too expensive.

Dear Bart:

This product is roughly $17.45 per foot for the standard cut, IVTAAER-000. We cut to length with no additional charge. If the items are in stock, it is a 2-day turn around; however, if the items are not in stock, the lead time can range from 7 to 10 business days.

If you have any additional questions, we do have an IVT specialist on site available for technical questions.

Please feel free to call 800-962-8979 for any other questions.

Thank you and have a great day.

I've been thinking about this a lot too. The linear system is key to our machine, however I also have the feeling that we could do it cheaper.

Does anyone think we could come up with an approach where bearings could be used directly on the TSlot? I guess that wear would be a concern what with the steel bearing running against the aluminum?

I liked Bart's idea of using 2 bearings separated by a washer to run along the V-Rail. (As I've estimated that VGroove Bearings alone cost: $89.55 from VXB http://www.vxb.com/page/bearings/PROD/V ... gs/Kit8353

Thoughts?

One more thing. I did not get the bearings quoted, but my experience is, these integral solution like Bishop Wisecarver tend to be 3-4 times higher than the VXB bearings. So I decide to see if the VXB bearing would work on these extrusions. They do appear to be usable.

i'm thinking of using compact v rail.

IVTAAW Compact Guide - MR

* Hardened steel raceways – high contact loads and wear resistance
* Low friction rolling elements – capable of high loads, acceleration, and velocity
* Carriages with t-slots – ease of mounting
* Three carriage styles

You should get some quotes on the carriages. I am curious to find out what they cost.

Are these V groove bearings any good ?
