Type of guide rail
The guide rail is usually made of mechanical processing or cold drawing, and its strength should be 370 to 520MPa. According to its transverse section, the main types are: T shape guide, L (or triangular) guide, U guide, O guide, hollow guide, etc. The shape of the common guide rail section is shown as shown.
The working surface of L rail, U guide and O rail is generally not processed. It is usually used for elevators, such as sundries, building staircases, etc. with low speed and low smoothness, and hollow guides are mostly used for heavy duty guideways with low speed requirements. The T guide rail has good flexural and machinability, and it is used as the elevator guide.
