For applications requiring high rigidity, increased load capacity, superior accuracy and long-term maintenance-free operation, our C-Lube Linear Roller Way MXL is the way to go. This model is part of our C-Lube Linear Roller Way Super MX family, which features a range of load capacities and mounting configurations.
Technical features. MXL linear guides feature basic static load ratings that are approximately 180% greater than MX standard units and approximately 130% greater than MXG high rigidity long units (depending on the specific size). In addition, the MXL units are 150% more rigid than MX units and 117% more rigid than MXG units. Running accuracy is also improved by increasing the slide unit length: MXL units contain more rollers than the shorter units, thereby minimizing runout.
Ideal applications. MXL units are suited for many different applications from improving machine tool cutting accuracy to liquid crystal display manufacturing. They’re also good for other applications requiring:
- Extra high rigidity.
- Increased load capacity.
- Superior accuracy.
- Maintenance-free operation.
- Maximum rigidity.
Premium lubrication. The C-Lube lubricating element of MXL features a unique capillary system consisting of a porous resin sleeve and steel backing, formed by sintering fine resin powder and impregnating a large oil supply into its open pores. As rollers circulate within the linear guide, lubricant is continuously distributed to the loading area along the track rail.
The result is long-term maintenance-free operation which has been tested to 20,000 kilometers and beyond, and reduced environmental impact due to the small amount of oil required. C-Lube is incorporated inside the slide unit, keeping size and weight to a minimum. Because C-Lube has no contact with the track, smooth motion is achieved without an increase in rolling resistance. Compared to ball bearings, rollers achieve minimal elastic deformation under load.
