Linear Cylindrical Guide Selection: A Comprehensive Guide

How to Choose Linear Cylindrical Guide

1) High positioning accuracy

When using a linear guide as a guide, the friction is rolling friction.

Not only does the friction coefficient decrease to 1/50th of a sliding guide, but also the difference between dynamic and static friction becomes small.

As a result, there is no slip phenomenon when the load platform moves, allowing for high positioning accuracy to be achieved.

2) Reduce wear and tear and maintain high precision for a long time

Traditional sliding guide rails often lead to poor platform movement due to the reverse flow of the oil film, resulting in insufficient lubrication and wear on the contact surface of the running rail. This, in turn, affects accuracy.

On the other hand, rolling guides experience very little wear, allowing equipment to maintain high precision for extended periods.

3) Suitable for high-speed motion and greatly reduce the driving power required for the equipment.

Due to the low friction of the linear guide, minimal force is required to move the load platform, particularly when the device operates in a reciprocating manner. This significantly reduces the power loss of the device. Additionally, the small amount of heat generated by friction allows for its application in high-speed motion.
