Ultra-smooth motion technology
21 August 2023
NSK’S NEW ultra-smooth motion technology, developed for the company’s popular general-purpose NH/NS series linear guides, is the world’s first design of its type.
Thanks to the use of elastic rolling elements, the patented technology achieves a highly consistent dynamic friction profile that is ideal for high-precision inspection
and measurement equipment.
The low friction and smooth motion characteristics of linear guides make them a valuable addition to all kinds of systems that require high-performance motion control. For this reason, NH/NS linear guides find use in a wide range of applications, including semiconductor and LCD manufacturing equipment, automotive manufacturing equipment, conveyor robots, inspection and measurement equipment, and machine tools.
As well as inspection and measurement equipment, NSK linear guides with ultra-smooth motion technology benefit applications requiring vertical operation and other mounting positions where operating characteristics tend to deteriorate.
