Schaumburg, IL ‚â€“ With the introduction of the SRS5M/WM, the benefits of Caged Technology are available for the first time in a miniature LM Guide.
THK Caged Technology employs a synthetic resin cage with a patented curvature that cradles each ball and separates it from the next one. The spaces between the rolling elements retain grease and act as a lubrication system. The incorporation of THK Caged Technology in this new LM Guide eliminates the need for frequent lubrication and results in long-term maintenance-free performance. The low particle generation of this design makes the SRS5M/WM ideal for precision equipment applications including medical, semiconductor equipment, and measuring instruments.
The ultra-compact SRS5M/WM features minimal rolling resistance and 4-way equal load ratings. Heights range from 6 ‚â€“ 6.5 mm; block widths are from 12 ‚â€“ 17 mm; and block lengths range from 14.2 ‚â€“ 19.4 mm (16.9 ‚â€“ 22.1 mm with end seal).
The SRS5M/WM is dimensionally interchangeable with THK‚â€™s RSR5 LM Guide.
