The ML Series Linear Roller System consists of a C shaped steel rail
with internal concave raceways where robust ball bearing rollers travel.
The high precision rollers are lubricated for life and protected with 2Z
seals. Sliders are available with three or five rollers including eccentrics
to adjust the slider’s preload. Both ends of the sliders are equipped
with polyamide wipers to remove debris from the raceway and grease
impregnated felt wipers to lubricate the raceways for long life with minimal
Sliders include a mix of concentric and eccentric rollers. The eccentric
rollers are used to preload the system and eliminate any play. The
preload can be adjusted to suit the particular application. Sliders are
able to carry load and moment loads in all direction. Because one of
the rail raceways contacts more rollers than the other, this direction is
the prefered direction of radial loading. Two small circular marks indicate
the direction of preferred slider loading.
The ML Systems’s C shaped steel rail has internal raceways that are
protected from accidental damage. Similarly, the rollers are protected
inside the rail and under the slider body.
Overall, the ML Series Linear Rail Systems is easy to assembly and extremely
