Schaumburg, Illinois -- Misumi USA Inc. is to offer its exclusive MX lubrication option for the company's LX linear actuator series and line of linear guides.
The MX lubricant contains a special polyurethane lubricating agent containing interconnected micro-particles that enable it to supply an optimal amount of lubrication, the Misumi Corp. subsidiary said in a 3 Oct announcement.
Misumi USA of Schaumburg, Illinois, said that by providing a continuous lubrication between the rolling elements and their races, the MX self-lubricating system also acts as an effective seal, protecting the ball-nut and the linear rail from contamination.
In the LX actuators, the MX self-lubrication cartridges are mounted on both sides of the LX bearing block, lubricating both the ball screw and the integrated linear bearing rails with every motion of the actuator, according to Misumi.
Part of the Japanese Misumi Group, Misumi USA was established in 1988 as a supplier of fixed and configurable components for factory automation, plastic-mould and press-die industries.
