Hydrostatic ways, by comparison, do not have this contact. In a hydrostatic system, the guideways use a pressurized film of oil, with pockets in the way system. Features of Hydrostatic Slides • Very low friction, no friction at positioning • Movement Hydrostatic guideways can compensate for forces resulting from weight.

The orifices are cross-connected to provide stiffness. Any devieations in the bed will be directly reflected in the accuracy.

Machine Tool Preventive Maintenance. I dealt with ball screw grinders with hydrostatic ways.

Hydrostatic Slides

I’m not totally convinced. Submit your feedback Your comments about this page Please leave your contact information if you would like a response. Machines equipped with this system always have sir actuated clamps. Ever since this idea was proposed in the homemade lathe thread, I’ve been facinated with the idea. Who has them hydristatic production now? Chris, the guy who runs the shop that was doing the upgrade said that these bearings were supposed to be able to run without oil for quite a while without causeing any damage to the guideways.

Linear guidways are totally different Applications Automotive Hdrostatic Building and construction machinery Linear guides Mechanical-engineering. The sliding parts are allowed to move and get hdrostatic no wear due to a pressurized oil film between them.

Hydrostatic C-guide rails with screwmounted guide plates Speed: Don’t think though it is magic. That book is expencive though! Very expensive to maintain. They can take catting force, many machines have them, claiming faster rapid rates, more accurate moves, hydrostatuc. I saw one at a local machine rebuilding compay today, actually it was in the process, they machined the original ways off and was fitting it with the linear rails, I always guudeways that linear rails wouldn’t hold up to the cutting pressure.


The Cintimatics were all round guideway machines Waldrich Coburg guide way grinders, love them. Hydrostatic guides provide exceptionally rigid motion with essentially zero friction.

In the other thread, the hydrsotatic was to use cylindrical ground round way bar for ease and trift and then have the carraige slide back and forth on hydrostatic linear bearings that would get pressure supplied to them from some external source.

Hydrostatic Slides

These machines have the advantages of true hydrostatic ways without the problem of a lot of oil oozing out and needing recovery. In storbook machine shop the siding member continually floated in a magical super clean oil and one perfectly accurate metal part never touched the other perfectly accurat part.

They also average the surface roughness out of the story and so provide exceptional accuracy this is why air-bearing spindles have such good true-in-round. They are used to do final machining on both molding surfaces with a 0. They hold these tolerances and repeat them from part to part in materials hardened to about 50 Rc. Steel profiles Applications Mechanical engineering elements. Do any of you have experience with this?

Every four months would find you in there on your hands and knees with spray bottles of naptha and or more rags cleaning what contaminents got through the way covers. Nearly all motor power gets to the workpiece. Products by Type Machine Tool Gauges. Oil loss is minimal, there is no mechanical oil pressure pump. I worked at Husky Injection Molding before starting my own business and they are a large consumer of Hembrug Lathes both in Europe and In Canada in the facilities where they make parts with molding surfaces.


These kinds of bearings are used in many ultra-precision machines – for example Moore grinders. Linear motors are used on high-speed machine tools with high acceleration and slide speeds. Other than that it sounds like these things are just plain bearings with a hydraulic pump squeezing fluid out through them.

I should be going over there again in the next couple of days and will try to take some pics. Hydrostatic Leadscrews – Speed comparable to a linear motor – Very low friction when machining, virtually frictionless during positioning – Steps in the 0.

Bob, Thanks for the info. There is a time and a place. Technical Resources Instruction Manuals. Well, it probably ain’t your local job shop, but seeing as how the company has been around since beforethat would be a good indication someone buys what guidewzys make.

The cross-connection is the key to stiffness – hydrostati pressure on the top due to cutting forces will cause the pressure at the orifice to increase and this will increase the pressure on the bottom due to cross connection to compensate. Hydrostatic Rotary Tables The world’s largest gear and profile grinding machines use hydrostatic bearings.

Or rather, why are they so rare?
