IKO Crossed Roller Way Solves Cage Creep

Over time, a linear motion rolling guide’s cage may creep to one side, causing multiple problems that can lead to a costly machine shutdown. This video from IKO presents a crossed roller way that solves cage creep and handles high loads while reducing machine size. Reducing costs and preventing costly production shutdowns.

The CRWG H series crossed roller way is a linear motion rolling guide that incorporates a roller cage between two linear ways with V-shaped surfaces that act as track grooves. As the cylindrical rollers are alternately crossed, this arrangement can handle loads in any direction while providing extremely high-accuracy and smooth linear motion.
