What is the shock absorber and used for?

In the machine industry, a shock absorber is a device designed to reduce the impact of shocks and vibrations caused by sudden stops, starts, or changes in direction. The shock absorber typically consists of a piston and a cylinder filled with a hydraulic fluid. When a shock or vibration occurs, the piston moves in the cylinder and compresses the hydraulic fluid, which absorbs the kinetic energy of the shock.

The hydraulic fluid is forced through small orifices in the piston, which creates a damping effect and slows down the motion of the piston. This damping effect helps to reduce the amplitude and frequency of the vibration, which in turn helps to reduce the stress and wear on the machine and its components.

How are ball screws manufactured?

Ball screws are precision mechanical devices that are used to convert rotary motion into linear motion. They consist of a threaded shaft (screw) and a nut with ball bearings that roll between the screw and the nut to reduce friction and increase efficiency. Here are the general steps involved in making a ball screw: Overall, … Read more

How to understand of Linear Guide problems?

Linear guides are essential components of many machines and equipment that require smooth and precise linear motion. When they break, the entire system can be compromised, leading to reduced accuracy, increased wear and tear, and even complete failure. Here are some steps to fix a broken linear guide:
