What is the difference in how the rails are assembled?

First, horizontal installation

       Standard horizontal installation is the simplest assembly method in the industry. Maintain high accuracy and precision when subjected to shocks and vibrations. Moreover, the installation is simple, which is convenient for disassembly, cleaning and maintenance of the equipment.


       Here are several ways to fix it:

       ① Fixed horizontal pressure: This is the simplest application method to solve shock vibration.

       ② Screw fixing: When the installation space is limited, screw fixing can be used, and the number of screws can be appropriately increased if necessary.

       ③Fixed conical block: Due to the angle of the conical block, horizontal pressure will occur.

       ④ Pin fixing: We usually do not use this method, in most cases, the rail installation can be fixed by screws. If the pin is installed, it will be very difficult for later maintenance and cleaning.


       Second, vertical installation

       Vertical installation generally also needs to be fixed with screws, but the parallelism of running under horizontal pressure is not good. When installing screws, uneven force may cause a large tolerance in the total height of the two parallel guide rails and affect the accuracy of the equipment. Because the vertical force points are different, it is easy to cause damage to the guide rail, and it is even more difficult to calculate the load force. Due to load problems, guide rail losses will occur.


       Third, inverted installation

       Finally, we talked about upside-down installation. In this case, the force is inverted upright. For example, our own rail dynamic load is 600KG. Since the equipment is installed vertically, when the equipment is running, it is necessary to calculate the vertical Force in the opposite direction and vertical force in the weight of the machine itself. Therefore, when recommending customers to select a model, it is best to select the model according to the load on our data multiplied by a load factor of 3 to ensure the normal operation and life of the equipment.
