Linear guide blocks are important components of linear motion systems. They are used to support and guide linear motion in various applications including machine tools, robotics, and automation equipment.
Linear guide blocks typically consist of a block made of metal or plastic that is mounted on a rail. The block contains a series of rolling elements such as balls, rollers, or needles that ride along the rail to provide smooth and precise linear motion.
The choice of linear block depends on factors such as load capacity, accuracy, speed, and environmental conditions. Some popular types of linear guide blocks include ball guides, roller guides, needle guides, and slide guides.
Ball guides use recirculating balls to provide smooth and precise linear motion. Roller guides use cylindrical rollers to support heavy loads and provide high rigidity. Needle guides use small, cylindrical needles that are suitable for high-speed and low-load applications. Slide guides use flat sliding surfaces to provide smooth and precise linear motion.
