How to Clean Linear Rail?
Linear guide rail, also known as line rail, slide rail, linear guide rail, linear slide rail, used for linear reciprocating movement, and can bear a certain torque, can achieve high precision linear motion under high load. We not only need to understand what linear guide is, but also know how to clean it, so that we can use it for a longer time. In this article, we will introduce how to ATO industrial automation clean linear rail.
The function of linear guide rail motion is to support and guide the moving parts to make reciprocating linear motion in a given direction. According to the friction properties, linear motion guide can be divided into sliding friction guide, rolling friction guide, elastic friction guide, fluid friction guide and so on. Linear bearings are mainly used in automatic machinery, such as German machine tools, bending machines, laser welding machines and so on. Of course, linear bearings and straight shafts are matched. For example, linear guide is mainly used in mechanical structures with high accuracy requirements. The moving components and fixed components of linear guide are not medium, but rolling steel balls.
Linear guide can be divided into three kinds: roller linear guide, cylindrical linear guide and ball linear guide, which are used to support and guide the moving parts to do reciprocating linear motion in the given direction. According to the friction properties, linear motion guide can be divided into sliding friction guide, rolling friction guide, elastic friction guide, fluid friction guide and so on.
As one of the core parts of the equipment, the guide rail and the straight axis function is to guide and support. In order to have high machining accuracy, the guide rail and straight line are required to have high guiding accuracy and good motion stability. During the operation of the equipment, a large amount of corrosive dust and smoke will be produced in the processing of the workpiece, which will be deposited on the surface of the guide rail and the straight axis for a long time, which has a great impact on the processing accuracy of the equipment, and will form corrosion spots on the surface of the straight axis of the guide rail, and shorten the service life of the equipment. In order to make the machine work normally and stably and ensure the processing quality of products, it is necessary to do a good job in the daily maintenance of guide rail and straight axis.
To clean the guide rail, please prepare two items: dry cotton cloth and lubricating oil. The guide rail of the engraving machine is divided into linear guide and roller guide. Clean linear guide: first move the laser head to the right (or left), find the linear guide, wipe with dry cotton cloth until the light is dust-free, plus a little lubricating oil (sewing machine oil can be used), the laser head around slowly push several times, so that the lubricating oil can be evenly distributed. Clean the roller guide: move the beam to the inside, open the end cover on both sides of the machine, find the guide rail, wipe the contact place between the guide rail and the roller with dry cotton cloth, and then move the beam to clean the rest of the place.
