A compact and solid machine tool with large work areas should be highly resistant to mechanical deformation. So, the requirements of high rigidity and excellent running characteristics represent the main target specs to be optimized.
In this case, the SCHNEEBERGER MONORAIL MR roller guideways with SPL lubrication units were used, because they achieve all requirements concerning the quality and reliability.
By using MONORAIL MR profiled guideways a high rigidity, rapid axis speed as well as excellent running characteristics have been achieved.
In addition, the accessibility to all parts has been improved. The resulting characteristics effective ergonomics and functionality not only make an operator’s work easier, but also safer and more efficient.
