Machine manufacturing is an art and every artist can choose different ways to make their difference.Even if the manufactured machines do the same job, they may differ in appearance and dimensions.
LM rails are produced in standard length and sized according to need.Standard length LM rails are shorter than the length of the machine in machines with a long travel distance. In this case, LM rails need to be jointed end to end.
Cutting the LM rails to the required lengths and grinding the ends is a very sensitive operation.LM rails are very expensive products so should not be wasted.The part to be cut for usage must be calculated and if the part will be jointed with other, 1-2mm left allotted for the grinding operation.
Linear guide systems are designed to take the lateral and axial loads on themselves while the load on the machine axes is transferred from one point to another.Many linear bearing types have been produced according to the amount of load to be transported or resisted, the angle of the load and environmental conditions.For example, linear guides to be used in a large press feed line, roller guide rails are generally preferred because the load will be too high.While choosing the linear guide, the speed, load, working frequency and environmental factors of the system are taken into consideration.
Also, linear guides have different sizes among themselves according to the conditions of the areas they will be assembled.There are different models such as short wide, short narrow, long wide, long narrow or narrow low.
