12 mm recirculating ball linear guide with carriage from the line DHM. The DHM series of linear guides is characterized by a very attractive price/performance ratio. These are economical entry-level linear guides.
Applications: simple linear systems, linear motion prototypes, entry level 3D printers, for low frequency manual operation or medium precision positioning.
If you are looking for better performance we recommend the linear guides from the DHM pro line: high-performance professional linear guides.
Recirculating linear guides enable linear motion based on rolling elements, as in this case balls.
Through the recirculation of these spheres between the rail and the carriage, the guide enables very precise linear motion with a very low coefficient of friction. Due to the constraints created between the rail and the carriage, guides of this type can carry loads in both vertical and horizontal directions. The series to which this rail belongs is ideal for small movements.
We recommend periodic lubrication with lithium grease. The lubrication interval varies depending on the characteristics of the linear system and the operating environment.
Note: Lubricants containing MoS2 (Molybdenum Bisulfide) or graphite should not be used.
Once the goods have been received, do not remove the carriage from the rail, as this can create problems for both the carriage itself and the rail.
Trolleys and guides are NOT interchangeable. Should you remove the trolley from the rail or install a trolley other than the one supplied with the order, operation will not be guaranteed.
Package contains: 1 x Linear recirculating ball rail 12 mm length 400 mm + 1 carriage MGN12C
