Abstract

To position precision machines accurately, linear motion (LM) guides supported by rolling elements can be used. For the ultra-accurate positioning control of precision machines, the understanding of the dynamic behavior of the LM guide at the macro and/or micro scales is most critical, but the research on this subject is rare. The objective of the present research is two-fold: to perform experiments to reveal the micro-scale, low-frequency dynamic characteristics of the LM guide and to develop a simplified theory to predict the observed dynamics of the LM guide. Balls are used as the rolling elements in the LM guide. Several experiments conducted show the hysteresis behavior and frequency-, force-dependent phenomena of the LM guide. The validity of the proposed theory is checked against the experimental results.
