Slideway lubrication stick-slip effect

Slideway lubrication stick slip effect

Smooth slideway operation requires special attention to friction. Slideways move in a linear motion and frequently operate under conditions of boundary lubrication, making them more susceptible to stick-slip. Without proper lubrication, loss of precision and even lost machine tool productivity may result.

This technical topic gives you the details you need for successful slideway lubrication, including:

  • Friction fundamentals
  • The stick-slip effect
  • Modern slideway lubricants
  • Applicable tests
