Nye Lubricants products are recommended to help reduce friction and wear in a linear guide systems to maintain high running accuracy and repeatability. These products exhibit excellent vacuum stability.
The guide rail must be able to move side-to-side with a smooth, controlled motion. A NyeTorr grease will reduce friction and wear while also inhibiting corrosion to ensure long operating life. These products are recommended for use in vacuum environments, as they exhibit low outgassing characteristics – Depending on the temperature and wear resistance task, the MAC based NyeTorr 5200 or the PFPE based NyeTorr 6300
A ball screw will facilitate precise, shifting movements in the linear guide system. The addition of a NyeTorr grease will reduce friction and allow metal components to slide against each other while also preventing ‘stick-slip’ noise – Depending on the temperature and wear resistance task, the MAC based NyeTorr 5200 or the PFPE based NyeTorr 6300
A lead screw requires greater torque in the linear guide application, leading to higher friction levels and higher operating temperatures. The addition of PFPE based NyeTorr grease will extend the operating life of the lead screw – (both PFPE based) NyeTorr 5300XP or NyeTorr 5350
