The guide rail and block system consists of a combination of rails and sliders. Guide rails are also known as linear guides, slide rails, linear guides and linear slides. The slider transforms the motion from a curve to a straight line. The linear guide slider system is known in the mainland. Taiwan is often referred to as linear guides and linear slides. It is used to support and guide moving parts and perform reciprocating linear motion in a given direction. According to the nature of friction, linear motion guides can be divided into sliding friction guides, rolling friction guides, elastic friction guides and fluid friction guides.
Precautions for use
Linear guides are precision parts, so they require a very careful attitude when used. Even if high-performance linear guides are used, if they are not used properly, the expected performance will not be achieved, and the linear guides will be easily damaged. Therefore, the following matters should be noted when using linear guides:
When taking the linear guide directly by hand, wash off the sweat on your hands and apply high-quality mineral oil before handling. Pay special attention to rust prevention during the rainy season and summer.
Keep the environment clean
Keeping the linear guide and its surroundings clean Even if tiny dust that is invisible to the naked eye enters the guide rail, it will increase the wear, vibration and noise of the guide rail.
Installation must be careful
The linear guides should be carefully and carefully used during installation. Strong stamping is not allowed. It is not allowed to directly hit the guide rails with a hammer. It is not allowed to transmit pressure through the rolling elements.
The installation tool should be suitable
Linear guides use special tools with appropriate and accurate installation tools, and try to avoid the use of cloth and short fibers.
