Felt-tip lube system

Rolling elements inside linear guides consume small amounts of lubrication while operating. A QZ lubrication system mounts on the LM block,replaces oil automatically, and extends maintenance intervals.

High-density fiber net, similar to that used in felt-tip pens, supplies just the right amount of oil to the appropriate positions. No waste provides an environmentally friendly design.
