IKO is a world-renowned producer of quality needle bearings, linear motion rolling guides, precision positioning tables, and machine components. It offers C-Lube, a five-year or 12,500-mile maintenance-free lubrication in M series linear ways and maintenance-free cam followers. Specialized solutions for many unique manufacturing situations include cleanrooms, vacuum environments, high-temperature areas, and dust or spatter protection.
Walk through any plant that uses linear motion systems, and you can often see maintenance workers, grease gun in hand, applying lubrication to linear guides. And why shouldn’t they. Under-lubricated guides can wear excessively, which leads to performance problems and premature failure.
Some linear guides focus on achieving the longest possible maintenance-free intervals. Others add as little as possible to the bearing’s mechanical package size. C-Lube linear guides have a unique design balancing both of these key objectives. This white paper offers a detailed overview of how C-Lube extends linear guide life.
When your machine design requires rotational mechanisms to handle complex loads and position an object, there’s no doubt precision and small size will be among your most significant criteria when choosing a bearing. Crossed Roller Bearings satisfy all these requirements and more.
