    To maintain machine tool accuracy and productivity, it’s vital to minimise friction in slideways and prevent wear. This can be a challenge, however, because of the tendency of slideways to exhibit slip-stick motions. When a slideway system has elasticity, the force needed to expand or compress a spring will likely differ from the force needed […]
