Linear guides and ball screws are important engineering elements in ultra-precision tool manufacturing. Regardless of whether horizontal processing centres, milling machines, NC lathes, CNC gear hobbing or surface grinding machines – all of these machine types depend on precision and speed of modern linear motion technologies that position the milling tool. The proper lubrication is essential for quiet, fast and wear-free operation. LUBCON lubricants for linear guides are extremely resistant towards water and coolants, have high load carrying capacity and are designed for the long-term lubrication of guides at speeds up to 60 m/min. In combination with automatic lubrication units such as the long-term solution SixMax 130 for the maintenance-free lubrication of modern linear guides and ball screw, LUBCON offers an optimum lubricant package for a long and maintenance-free guide operation in metal working machines.
