A Linear Ball Bearing – 8mm diameter – LM8UU or linear slide is a bearing that provides free motion in one linear direction.
Also called “ball slides,” ball bearing slides are the most common type of linear slide. Ball bearing slides offer smooth precision motion along a single-axis linear design, aided by ball bearings housed in the linear base, furthermore, self-lubrication properties that increase reliability. Ball bearing slide applications include delicate instrumentation, robotic assembly, cabinetry, high-end appliances in addition to clean room environments, which primarily serve the manufacturing industry but also the furniture, electronics and construction industries. For example, a widely used ball bearing slide in the furniture industry is a ball bearing drawer slide.
All you need to get started is one or two 8mm Linear Motion Bearing, two 8mm supports and a precision-ground 8mm rod. Consequently, CNC projects will have two of these on opposite sides to support a larger platform.
