Technico's THK Caged Ball LM Guides series has a high rigidity design that allows it to achieve highly accurate and linear motion. The balls roll in four rows of raceways, precision-ground on an LM rail and an LM block. The ball cages and endplates incorporated in the LM block allow the balls to circulate. Each row of balls is placed at a contact angle of 45°so that the rated loads applied to the LM block are uniform in the four directions (radial, reverse-radial and lateral directions), enabling the LM Guide to be used in all orientations. In addition, the LM block can receive a well-balanced preload, increasing the rigidity in the four directions while maintaining a constant, low friction coefficient.
