MONORACE LA Series linear guides are designed to be a low cost linear solution with good load handling capabilities for a variety of applications and environments. The rail is made by precision roll forming steel sheet into precision shape. Several materials and finishes are available. Mounting holes are located at 80mm spacing and button head Allen screws, or flat head M-TORX screws are recommended for mounting. LAN and LUN rails are are made from carbon sheet steel and are shaped by high precision, ultra-smooth forming rollers. They are then case hardened using our revolutionary TRACE-NOX nitriding and black oxidizing process to ensure an extended lifetime and excellent corrosion resistance. LAZ rails are also made from carbon sheet steel but are zinc plated for corrosion resistance. LAX rails are made from 300 series stainless steel for ultimate corrosion resistance.
LAN series rails feature T Race NOX coating. This innovative hardening technology is applied to the linear rail products to increase the surface hardness and to grant a strong resistance against corrosion. After nitride hardening the rails are processed with an oxidation treatment and subsequently a hot-oil impregnation to assure a nice black color and a high corrosion resistance. LAN rails are designed to be guiding rails and can be used in combination with LUN series floating rails for a self-aligning system capable of tolerating alignment errors of up to 3.4mm.
