This disclosure relates to the field of linear guided systems used in 3D printing machines.
Linear guides with bearings can be designed in several forms. Some common linear guides with
bearings use a flat surface with a bearing rolling on top of it, but also can use a linear rod or any
For this linear guide with bearings, hertz pressures are critical for fatigue and lateral freating.
Finding a method to reduce this hertz pressures will provide a way to improve performance of the
This disclosure provides a method an apparatus to reduce that hertz pressures increasing the
maximum weight that the system can carry and/or the amount of cycles that this system can
perform without visible damage via fatigue or lateral freating.
