Guiding

Guiding means keeping something in position and is therefore roughly equivalent to positioning, directing and deflecting. For instance, lateral guide gibs can be used to deflect components on a conveyor belt in order to reposition them.

Overview of all applications

Applications - Guiding

If the elements used to guide components in the production process (guide gibs, guide pins, guide pulleys, etc.) become worn, their positioning accuracy is no longer guaranteed and inaccuracies gradually creep into the process. In many cases, abrasion of guide elements is undesirable. Depending on the material, this means that metallic or non-metallic abrasion of the guide gib can soil, contaminate or even damage the guided part.

This is why rivets or screws are guided through a ceramic tube to hold them precisely in position for hardening by means of inductive heating.
