Global Linear Slides Market: Overview
Linear slides also known as linear motion bearings which are designed to provide free motion in a one direction only. There are different types of linear slides, they provide linear motion based on the bearings which might be ball bearing, linear roller bearing, fluid or magnetic bearing, dovetail bearing. There are few slides that provide movement along both X and Y axis like linear stages, XY tables, machine slides and others. They are basically light weighted compact and operates with very low sliding resistance. Due to its low inertia and very small frictional factor it excels in high-speed responsive performance. Linear slides provide a high load capacity by using Gothic arch grooves and are highly accurate and rigid. Linear ball slides are highly corrosion resistant slides which has extremely low friction coefficient due to stainless steel ball roll on four stainless steel needle roller which are highly corrosion resistant. Liner slides are designed in such a way that they provide robust applications that demand high thrust along stiffness and accuracy
Global Linear Slides Market: Market dynamics
The growth of global linear slides market is driven by automotive and electrical & electronics industry. The growth is majorly driven by the industrial application of the linear slides. Linear slides have two kinds of rolling elements ball bearing slides and roller slides. The end users can chose either ball bearing slides or roller slides, the ball bearing slides offer even accuracy motion in a single axis design, or roller slides which are also called as crossed roller slides they are non-motorized slides that offer low-friction linear movement for equipment power by hand or inertia which provides heavier load capabilities and better movement control. The restrain for liner slide market would be the substitutes present in the market like linear guide way. The linear guideway provides a linear motion that utilizes re-circulating rolling element between a bearing block and a profiled rail. The coefficient friction on guideway is only 1/50 compared to linear slides which are able to take loads from all the sides, with this a high precision and accuracy in moving can be achieved.
