Guide rail linear motion system components

The guide rail can be understood as a kind of rolling guide, which is an infinite rolling cycle between the steel ball and the guide rail, so that the load platform can easily move linearly along the guide rail with high precision and reduce the friction coefficient to the ordinary conventional sliding guide. One-fifth of the size can easily achieve high positioning accuracy. The design of the final unit between the slider and the guide rail enables the linear guide to bear the load in all directions, such as up, down, left and right. The patented reflow system and the simplified structural design make the linear guide have smoother and less noisy motion.


       Friends who have used the guide rails know that the guide rail is moving in a straight line when it is running. Do we know the principle of its motion? And what components does it have? I believe many of my friends have been curious. The answer is below, wonderful to continue!


       To achieve linear motion of the guide rail, the following two basic conditions are required:

       Drive unit

       2. Guide parts


       What is the drive unit:

       The drive member provides the power required for the linear motion of the mechanism, and the guide member ensures that the mechanism moves in a defined direction and provides sufficient motion accuracy and support stiffness.


       One. Drive unit

       The most basic linear motion drive components in engineering are:


       2. Hydraulic cylinder

       3. Various motors (such as stepper motor, servo motor)

       These components are standard components for commercial production and are manufactured by specialized manufacturers and can be sealed directly from a variety of typical linear motion cylinders.


       Here is a simple and cost-effective way to drive linear motion. The easiest and least expensive way to drive a mechanism to achieve linear motion is to use linear motion cylinders, which is a preferred method in engineering design.


       The advantage of using a linear motion cylinder as a driving component is that the mounting structure is simple, the cost is low, and the manufacturing is quick, because it has these advantages. Therefore, linear motion cylinders are widely used in various automation equipment. Although in most cases the use of linear motion cylinders can meet the requirements of use.
