In the market, linear guide rail materials of major brands are commonly used, such as GCr15. Carburized bearing steel, such as G20CrMo, is also considered.
Since the slider is in contact with the track and steel ball by rolling point, the friction coefficient is very small and it is not easy to generate heat, so only a small power is needed to drive the machine. Because the required driving force is small and the power consumption is low, it is more suitable for high-speed operation than the sliding device.
Applications: electronics, computer machinery, semiconductor equipment, conveying and handling machines, tools, automation engineering equipment, medical equipment and LCD processing equipment.
