Failures in Lm Guides and Ballscrws

Does it happen that your linear motion system loses its accuracy or breaks down regularly? This failure of LM Guides and Ballscrew can happen because of many reasons which we will be describing here in brief. Most basic causes include lack of lubrication, misalignment in assembly, or excessive loading. Some of the most basic failures are as below: 1. WEAR Severe friction can result in serious wear of the rolling…

Hollow and Cooling Nut Ballscrew

Ballscrews are one of the most critical components of a CNC machine. It is essential to keep the ballscrew in a good condition to maintain the accuracy in the machine. Some of the most common ways a ballscrew loses its accuracy are1. Excessive heating of Ballscew2. Insufficient lubrication3. Running over the suggested rpm Whenever there is an excessive heating of ballscrew the material tend to expand due to thermal expansion…

Preloading in Ballscrew & LM Guideways

What is Preloading and why it is done? Preload is the elimination of internal clearance between the rail and carriage or between the ball screw and ball nut. This makes the system more rigid by creating a load on the linear guide or ball screw, which reduces deflection when an external force is applied. Preloading is used to increase the accuracy and rigidity of a ball screw system. It makes the…

Ballscrews

A ball screw is a mechanical linear actuator that translates rotational motion to linear motion with little friction. A threaded shaft provides a helical raceway for ball bearings which act as a precision screw. As well as being able to apply or withstand high thrust loads, they can do so with minimum internal friction. They are made to close tolerances and are therefore suitable for use in situations in which high precision is necessary. The ball assembly…
