An Indepth Look at MISUMI Linear Guides

 

TECHNICAL TUTORIAL - Explanation of linear guides:

Basic structure of linear guide includes (1) a linear guide rail, (2) a linear motion block, and (3) balls as a roller bearing element. In order to meet wide range of requirements different elements can be combined with basic structure. Like adding seal plates to linear block as contamination-protection accessories makes this product suitable for clean room environments, and adding ball retainers improves sliding performance (see [Fig.2]). Depending on the accuracy and load requirements single linear guide or two parallel linear guide configurations can be used.

The linear motion accuracy of the slide guide is almost equal to the accuracy of the rail that guides the linear motion block (slider). However, the accuracy of the rail is directly affected by the quality of the mounting surface on which it's attached. For this reason, extremely accurate straightness and parallelism of the mounting face are prerequisites for the accuracy of the linear guides. This section explains the design of the slide guide's mounting surface (for mounting a rail and for mounting a block).

To accurately mount linear guides use both horizontal and vertical datum surfaces at the same time (Refer to [Fig.1] on previous page). Uneven tightening of the rail clamping bolts can cause waviness especial in long rails. This section explains recommended methods when fastening rails.
