When it comes to linear motion rails, a high hardness value is critical. Unfortunately, some rail manufacturing processes don’t impart sufficient hardness to the rails. If hardness doesn’t extend to a sufficient depth, the component won’t be able to withstand heavy loads, resulting in time-consuming and costly downtime.
To gain maximum life for your linear guide, you’ll want to consider the hardening process, the material being hardened and how to finish the rail to optimize its performance. That way, quality manufacturers can make the best linear rail for your industrial application.
Consider induction hardening:
To harden their rails, a manufacturer can use nitriding, a heat treating process that creates a case-hardened surface with thicknesses between 0.2 and 0.3 mm. When you consider the kinds of heavy loads that are applied to industrial raceways, rails that have thin nitrided surfaces will tend to crack under load.
