Friction and roller bearing versions
The new precision double tube linear unit PD is backed by a comprehensive system that combines numerous variants with regard to tube diameter, travel distances, spindle direction, guide element size and materials. The guide element is moved by a trapezoidal or fine thread spindle or a recirculating ball screw. It can make use of quadruple friction bearings or – for even greater precision – roller bearings with linear bushes. All newly developed versions enable kinematics with considerably reduced maintenance requirements and higher repeatable precision. The movement forces required are also reliably low, even under load.
New spreading mechanism replaces clamping slits
Instead of using a clamping slit, the end caps and the two guide tubes are fastened with an elegant internal spreading mechanism to ensure precise spacing and parallel alignment. Coupled with the adjustment range of the guide element with friction bearing, this results in minimal play and enables applications with high precision requirements. If necessary, the spindle can be secured against unintended turning with an integrated clamp. All linear units can be ordered in the material combinations of aluminum/steel and aluminum/stainless steel plus an entirely stainless steel version.
Backwards-compatible and ready for the future
Because the new precision double tube linear units PD are an evolutionary improvement over established types, they can easily be used as replacements for the other models, which are still included in Inocon’s product range.
Accessories adapted to standard
The shaft end of the spindle can be present on one or both sides. The shaft length is based on the respective features – with hand wheels, position indicators or combinations of both elements. The adaptation of angle gears and transmission units is also provided for; both are available separately as standard accessories. Bellows for protection of the guide tubes and the spindle, connecting plates and additional following guide elements further expand the range of applications; these are available on request.

Thank you very much
Your INOCON Team
Dear Sir or Madam,
a lot has happened at INOCON in the last few weeks and we are pleased to present our latest developments to you with this e-mail.
In addition to this, we would like to thank you for the great cooperation and support in this extraordinary times and farther wish you, your family and your colleagues health and strength!
Your INOCON team
Precision and customer satisfaction are our top priorities, so we are all the more pleased when our customers confirm this. “To make it short: the linear units make a good impression! Everything fits. ”
We got this feedback from our customer who installed our new precision double-tube linear units PD.
The new PD series has completely closed and mechanically processed slides and end elements for distortion-free assembly thanks to a special internal spreading technology.
Like the previous ILD series, the PD variant is also offered as a right or left thread, right and left thread or as a split spindle variant, each with a single or double slide.
Precision is often a very important aspect in constructions, therefore it is often necessary that linear units are also protected. Bellows not only protect guideways from contamination, they also prevent the operator from accidentally reaching into the machine and injuring himself.
From now on we have double-tube linear units also available from stock with bellows.
Special times require special measures!
Innovative construction elements from INOCON are also in demand now, e.g. as brackets for disinfectant dispensers:
3 clamp connectors, 2 tubes and 1 aluminum profile frame are sufficient for a stable and mobile construction.
Dear Sir or Madam,
we would like to thank you for the pleasant cooperation during the year 2020 and to bring to your attention, that our company will be closed from December 24nd, 2020 up to and including January 01st, 2021 due to Christmas holidays.

We wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, an atmospheric end of the year and for the new year 2021 health, happiness, and success!
INOCON is now an Entega customer.
ENTEGA is one of Germany's leading suppliers of green electricity with around 700,000 customers.
Following in the tradition of a classic regional supplier, the company has undergone profound ecological change in recent years:
Since 2008, it has consistently pursued the vision of a simple, affordable and climate-friendly energy supply for all and has refrained
from selling nuclear power. At the same time, ENTEGA continuously invests in the expansion of renewable energies and was one
of the first companies to be awarded the title "Pioneer of the Energy Turnaround" by TÜV SÜD due to its above-average commitment
to the energy turnaround.
Because for the first time from summer 2020, our technical sales representative, Mr. Thomas Degen, will stand at your disposal. If required, you can arrange an appointment now by:

The subcontracting fair "components for processing and packaging", which will again be held in 2020 according to a proven concept, completely parallel to interpack at a central location in the exhibition centre,
offers a platform for companies, the drive, control and sensor technology, products for industrial image processing, handling technology, industrial software and communication as well as
offer complete automation systems for the packaging industry.
In addition, manufacturers or suppliers of machine parts, components, accessories and perephery devices as well as those of components and aids for packaging materials will be exhibiting.
In corrosive environments, stainless steel is the material of choice.
Often, however, cheaper solutions are also sufficient, for example high-quality powder-coated parts.
Thanks to their powder coating, the INOCON aluminum clamp connectors are still undamaged after 500 hours in the salt spray chamber.
How do powder coatings actually perform? INOCON had this question answered by a standards-compliant assessment. The Institute for Electroplating and Surface Treatments Solingen (IGOS) placed a standard cross clamp in the test chamber and subjected it to a longterm salt spray test. The aluminum clamp receives a black powder coating at the factory that is extremely corrosion-resistant at a thickness of about 180 μm. After 240 hours, after 360 hours and even after 504 hours, the test as per DIN EN ISO 9227 NSS:2017-07 caused no discernible corrosive alteration of the standard part. This exceeds even the target time for the highest resistance class C5 as per DIN 55633:2009-04 by an impressive 24 hours. The assessment by IGOS states that the test specimen had “no visible alterations on the tested surface”. Further testing beyond 500 hours was dispensed with for economic reasons.
Economical and durable
Powder coatings are very durable and corrosion-resistant because they prevent corrosive media from contacting the sensitive substrate beneath – in this case aluminum. INOCON generally applies powder coatings using an electrostatic process that significantly reduces material losses due to overspray. After subsequent fusing at high temperature, the coatings are sufficiently thick and pore-free – even on edges and corners, meaning that weak points due to edge thinning are avoided.
Powder coatings are considered exceptionally economical and environmentally sound; after all, no solvents are used during application.
Lighter and less expensive
With such high-quality powder coatings, INOCON offers interesting alternatives to connecting elements of stainless steel. The aluminum parts are not only less expensive, they are also lighter – an important feature in many weight-sensitive applications.

The two new Inocon products of monitor mounts (including VESA adapter plates) and locking guide elements FM-RS and KM-RS expand the usability and potential applications for tube clamps and ensure that an appropriate solution is available for every customer requirement.
Monitor mounts with connection stud
The use of touch screens, panels, displays and monitors on production machines has now become common practice and is defined by the VESA standard for mounting monitors. The Rheinbach-based tube clamp specialist utilizes this standard to create a practical interface in the form of a monitor mount that is coordinated with the existing Inocon portfolio. The monitor mount is focused on the core functionality, and the connection stud makes it extremely simple to fasten the mount to all Inocon connection elements according to the given installation situation. In combination with rotary or flanged joints, it is possible to achieve any number of degrees of freedom and adjustment options.
Locking guide elements for recurring positions
With locking guide elements based on cross or flange tube clamps, Inocon is establishing a new category of format adjustment options. They allow for quick and easy movement to recurring positions on a square tube by means of a moving guide element. The locking guide element is stopped at the desired locations by a locking or latching pin that engages in the provided holes. The variable connection element permits quick and accurate adjustment, making it suitable for use on all machines requiring individually defined positions. The matching hole patterns on the associated tubes can be obtained directly from Inocon based on the order code.

Single tube linear unit with spring-actuated guide elements
The quality of our products depends not only on careful production and assembly; as you might have already noticed, shipping by parcel service is at a certain risk for our linear units.
The requirements of package service providers regarding the load capacity of the packaging make this effort unavoidable! (Transport insurance coverage)
In order to protect our products single-tube and double-tube linear units we have therefore developed a new plastic packaging which, together with a stable outer carton, will leave the goods unharmed to you or your customers!
Thus, disposable packagings such as air cushion film, adhesive tape and cardboard are not required; The plastic packaging can be reused!
In addition, the new packaging is ideally suited to send the goods to end customers without annoying repackaging!
An extensive pre-assembly of your superstructure is possible without additional costs and a complete dismantling of the components is no longer necessary.
