Extending The Life of Ball Bearing Slide Guides

June 12, 2023
Parallelism and proper mounting are so important for any kind of slide guide. Like a pot-holed road wears a car down, a slide guide wears if its raceway isn’t precisely machined. Be alert to all the other engineered features for best performance.

In this tutorial the engineering designs that results in optimal performance are clearly described. For example, it explains how, when slide guide balls and precisely machined raceway grooves are closely sized and raceways have four-row/ two-point contact, the result is high load capacity, lower friction and wear, no stick-slip, reliable smoothness and long travel life.
