How to avoid rust on Hiwin rails
March 18，2021 come from DKS Bearing News Editorial Department
We briefly introduce several protective measures:
After we have finished using it, wipe a layer of anti-rust oil on the linear guide. Don’t think it’s unimportant, it’s very important. Don’t feel that the processor has already refueled when you buy it. In fact, they evaporate quickly and are placed in a room temperature warehouse. Don’t mix corrosive things together, unify warehouse supports, and don’t put unused linear guides on the ground, because underground anti-rust oil evaporates quickly, so everyone must pay attention to this.
If it is assembled inside the equipment and is blocked by an aluminum alloy frame outside, you can wipe some anti-rust oil or lubricating oil for 10 days and a half on a regular basis to prevent the lubricating oil from evaporating and working for a long time. The surface of the guide rail is in contact with friction, and the friction coefficient becomes larger, which is detrimental to the service life of the slider.
