Product Description: LM8UU linear bearing for 3D printer
Linear bearing made of high quality steel . Used, among others in RepRap 3D printers , i.e. structures largely designed and made by the users themselves. The bearing is shaped like a sleeve with rows of balls placed in the walls. It is used to move elements that move linearly along guides. The product is characterized by high precision of work. The inner diameter of the bearing is 8mm , the height of the sleeve is 24mm.
Application of linear bearings
Linear bearings are used in numerous devices using the linear displacement technique. Their precision determines the accuracy of the movement of individual sliding elements of the devices. Bearings, usually in the form of a small sleeve, can be found in:
- 3D printers
- CNC milling machines
- Material: steel
- Inner Diameter: 8mm (Tolerance: 0 to 0.009mm)
- Outer Diameter: 15mm (Tolerance: 0 to 0.013mm)
- Overall height: 24 mm
- Weight: 13 g
Linear bearing LM8UU for 3D printer
The presented LM8UU linear bearing is made of high-quality steel that guarantees long service life even in the event of intensive use under load.
The universal size and shape make the LM8UU bearing suitable for use in devices where precision work is the most important, as well as in DIY projects.
What else is worth knowing about the LM8UU linear bearing?
3D printing requires high precision of the movements of individual printer elements. Otherwise, the quality of the models may be unsatisfactory. Linear bearing LM8UU for a 3D printer, and more precisely its dimensions, are characterized by a minimum tolerance. In practice, this means a guarantee of the exact reproduction of all programmed movements of the device.
In the category of components for building 3D printers, there are also other bearings and linear shafts that can be used to build your own printer working on the basis of additive technology.
