Slide coating with excellent vibration damping properties
Longer maintenance intervals and less downtime
Good safety features
Optimised material used with small friction coefficient
Shock loads and vibrations do not damage the guide
LWRPM/LWRPV guideways are linear guidance systems that are equipped with a Turcite-B sliding surface. This PTFE-based material is self-lubricating and has excellent sliding properties. The coating is bonded to the LWRPM rail and then ground to size. The LWRPV rail itself is then hardened and ground. LWRPM/LWRPV rail guides should be used where rail guides with rolling element units are unsuitable due to external factors, such as extremely short strokes, shock loads or difficult environmental conditions.
