Comparison of guiding types used in die making

Here you will find the areas of application and characteristics of the different guiding elements used in die making.

Comparison of guiding types

Ball guides – precise and smooth running

Areas of application
  • For highest speeds
  • For maximum precision
  • For high requirements regarding radial offset
  • For thin sheets
Characteristics
  • Minimal wear through axial offset of the balls
  • Special inlet geometry guarantees a smooth entry of the balls
  • Free of play guiding through optimal preload
  • Smooth running through rolling motion of the balls
  • Allows easy closing action of the dies

- Can become overloaded at high shear forces due to the point contact 
- Stroke / path is limited

The bronze coated sliding guide – for high shear forces

Areas of application
  • Ideal for limited speeds (30m/min)
  • For die clearances bigger than 0.03 mm due to the medium play of 0.01 mm (G4)
  • Ideal for thick strips due to the high shear forces
Characteristics
  • The circumferential oil groove ensures perfect lubrication - also in the case of short strokes
  • The stroke / path is not limited – extension of the pillar is possible

- Risk of die tilting during the closing action

Roller guides – precise and stiff

Areas of application
  • For high speeds
  • For maximum precision
  • Higher stiffness than with the ball guide
  • Suitable for fine blanking due to high shear forces
Characteristics
  • Minimal wear through axial offset of the rollers
  • Special inlet geometry guarantees a smooth entry of the rollers
  • Free of play guiding through optimal preload
  • High stiffness due to lines touching the rollers
  • In many cases more resilient than the ball guide

- Stroke / path is limited
- More expensive than the ball guide
- Can only be used with axial movements

Self-lubricating sliding guide – the strong alternative

Areas of application
  • Ideal for self-lubricating applications thanks to the oil depot and solid lubricant MoS2 in the sinter layer
  • Up to 250°C
Characteristics
  • The frictional heat causes the oil to rise to the sliding surface. Due to its capillary action the oil retreats in the sinter layer (when the machine is idle).
  • The ideal diffusion zone between the sinter layer and the steel sheath ensures inseparable molecular bonds
  • High resistance to abrasive wear and very good emergency operating features without additional lubrication

Sliding guide made of steel

Areas of application
  • At high shear forces
  • For short stroke rates
Characteristics
  • The circumferential oil groove ensures perfect lubrication - also in the case of short strokes
  • Guiding diameter for low coefficients of friction Ra 0.3 honed

- Possible die tilting during the closing action

Solid bronze sliding guide

Areas of application
  • For large sheet thickness due to guide tolerance G6
  • For moderate stroke rates
  • For medium shear forces
Characteristics
  • Optimum lubrication through graphite rings
  • Initial lubrication with VGM 160 reduces the wear
  • The stroke/path is not limited – extension of the pillar is possible

Continuous abrasion of the solid lubricant
