Improvement of damping effect
During repid traverse movement, the LM guide moves smoothly with almost no differential ship, and achieves high positioning accuracy. During heavy cutting and slow movement, the propet differential ship according to cutting load is generated. As a result, it increases frictional resistance and improves the damping effect (damping characteristics).
Ultra-heavy load specifications
The radius of curvature of the raceway is very similar to the ball radius so that the contact area, when subject to a load, is no less than the contact area of a roller type. This allows the new LM guide to have a higher load carrying capacity than the roller type. They do not suffer a locking phenomenon due to the skewing of the rollers, which often occurs to the roller type.
Wide variety of options
Since various options such as the end seal and cover plate are available, the LM guide can accomodate a variety of specifications.
