Linear guide rails are an important component in many linear motion systems. They are designed to support and guide linear motion in one direction, providing a smooth and precise movement for machine components or tools.

These rails typically consist of a metal block, or carriage, that slides along a track, or rail, that is mounted to a frame or surface. The may contain ball bearings or other rolling elements that roll along the surface of the track, reducing friction and allowing for smoother movement.

Linear guide rails are commonly used in applications such as CNC machines, 3D printers, robotics, and other automated systems where precise and accurate movement is required. They can also be used in manual applications, such as sliding doors or drawer slides.

It is important to select the right type of linear guide rails for your application, taking into account factors such as load capacity, travel distance, and operating temperature range.

Linear Guide Rails from Tallman Robotics Limited have features as follows: 

Suitable for high-speed movement and significantly reducing the required driving horsepower of the machine power of the machine
Due to the very low friction force when the linear slide moves, the bed can operate with only a small amount of power, especially when the bed operates frequently, which can significantly reduce the power loss of the machine. And due to its relatively small heat generated by friction, it is suitable for high-speed operation.

High positioning accuracy of Linear Guide Rails.
When linear guideway is used as linear guidance, because the friction mode of linear guideway is rolling friction, not only the friction coefficient is reduced to 1/50 of sliding guidance, but also the difference between dynamic friction and Stiction becomes very small. Therefore, when the bed is running, there will be no slipping phenomenon, and the positioning accuracy can reach µ m level.

Less wear,maintain accuracy for a long time

Traditional sliding guidance inevitably leads to poor platform motion accuracy due to the countercurrent effect of the film, and insufficient lubrication during motion leads to wear on the contact surface of the running track, seriously affecting accuracy. The wear of the rolling guide bow l is very small, so the machine can maintain precision for a long time.

Easy to assemble and interchangeable
When assembling, simply milling or grinding the assembly surface of the slide rail on the machine table, and fixing the slide rail and slider respectively to the machine table with specific torque according to the recommended steps, can reproduce the high precision during processing. Traditional sliding guidance requires scraping the running track, which is both laborious and time-consuming, and once the accuracy of the machine is poor, another scraping is necessary. Linear slide rails have interchangeability, and can be replaced with sliders, slide rails, or even linear slide rail groups, allowing the machine to regain high-precision guidance.

Simple lubrication structure of Linear Guide Rails.
If the lubrication of the sliding guide is insufficient, it will cause direct friction and wear of the contact surface metal on the bed. However, it is not easy for the sliding guide to have sufficient lubrication, and it is necessary to drill holes in appropriate positions on the bed for oil supply. The linear slide rail has an oil nozzle installed on the slider, which can directly inject grease with an oil gun. It can also be replaced with a dedicated oil pipe joint to connect the oil supply pipe for lubrication by an automatic oil supply machine.
