How To Choose The Guide Rails Of CO2 Laser Machine?

What are the main functions of the guide rail in the engraving machine?

The guide rail is an important accessory of the engraving machine, which is a device that can withstand, fix, and guide the direction of movement, as well as a device for reducing frictional force. A longitudinal groove or ridge on the surface of a guide is used to guide and fix machine parts. The wear resistance of the rail means that the guide rail can maintain a certain accuracy after long-term use.

Which Is The Best Guide Rails?

A good guide rails of  laser engraving machine should have the following points:

1.Good wear resistance. 

The guide rail will wear out during use, but it should be small and can be automatically compensated or adjusted after wear.It means the guild rail can still move accurately after using a long period. The abrasion of guide rails should keep at a minimum level and it can be repaired and adjusted.

2. The movement is simple and smooth. 

When at work, it should be simple and efficient, with uniform speed and no crawling at low speed.

3. Certain guiding precision. 

Guiding accuracy refers to the moving parts on guiding rails that should run in a straight line and keep precise in a location with relative interfaces.The guide rail should move flexibly and maintain a stable speed. Crawling should be forbidden in the condition of low speed.

4. Good structure design. 

In addition to the above demands, guiding rail should be designed simply in a way that can be easily manufactured, measured, equipped, adjusted, and reduced production cost.

5. Running stably against temperature change. 

The guiding rail should work stably when the temperature alters.The guide rail should work normally even when the temperature changes in a certain range.

6. Strong rigidity. 

The guiding rail bears the external force on the running parts. which means the guiding rail should have a strong rigidity. Therefore, the length of the guiding rail surface should be stretched in order to reduce the force guiding surface bears. Auxiliary guiding rails should be set to share the external force.

7. High stiffness. 

The interface of guiding rails bears the external force on moving parts. So guide rails should have good stiffness.

What Are The Types Of Guide Rails?

There are 3 differents types of guide rails which used for Co2 laser machines .
