To make a simple analogy, people who ride bicycles in the past know that the lubrication of bicycle chains is very important, which determines the rider's feelings and effort. Regardless of whether it is a linear rail or a miniature rail that responds to market demand, the importance of its own lubrication work is basically clear at a glance. Only a good lubrication work can ensure its stability and high efficiency in the working process. In general, there are two main lubrication methods for miniature guides:


1. Oil injection


Generally, this kind of guide rail will adopt a sealed type, mainly leaving an oil filling hole, which is convenient for oil filling, but also can ensure that it will not leak oil while lubricating and filling. This built-in oil filling method is a method that most guide rails will use.


2. Built-in oil storage block


This is also a way of oil storage, but there is a limit to the quantity. Basically speaking, it is actually a way of storing oil, and basically it is also supplied by means of regular refueling by means of oil injection holes. It just means that the guide rail itself has its own storage function, which can store oil well, which is convenient for daily use. It is unnecessary to constantly refuel during daily use, which adds to the heavy workload and mechanical instability.


When using mechanical products, we must not forget that what we use is lubrication. Lubrication can not only extend the service life of machinery, but also provide conditions for stable work. However, this kind of miniature guide rail actually requires particularly high lubrication. Because this kind of guide rail itself has a faster working frequency and high precision, the lubrication requirements are naturally high.
