Linear Roller Ways Provide Maintenance-Free Operation
IMTS 2018: IKO International Super MXL Master Grade C-Lube linear roller ways feature a range of load capacities and mounting configurations.
IKO International says its Super MXL Master Grade C-Lube linear roller ways feature a range of load capacities and mounting configurations to offer high rigidity, accuracy and maintenance-free operation.
A low fluctuation specification provides high-precision feeding. Raceway processing suppresses small running deflection, which reduces fluctuation. Low fluctuation is ideal for linear motion on machine tools that require high-precision, high-quality processing. The extra-long unit is said to improve load capacity and rigidity in mechanical equipment.
The C-Lube lubricating element features a capillary system consisting of a porous resin part integrated in the recirculating path of the end plate. As rollers circulate within the linear guide, lubricant is continuously distributed to the loading area along the track rail. The result is maintenance-free operation and reduced environmental impact due to the small amount of oil required. C-Lube is incorporated inside the slide unit, keeping size and weight to a minimum. Because C-Lube has no contact with the track, smooth motion is achieved without an increase in rolling resistance.
