Stick-slip motion of a moving element on an actual machine tool slideway is investigated experimentally under various sliding conditions, and the fundamental characteristics of the stick-slip motion are clarified. Based on these experimental results, the characteristics of static friction in the period of stick and kinetic friction in the period of slip are studied concretely so as to clarify the stick-slip process. It is shown experimentally that static and kinetic frictional coefficients can be expressed with simple formulas. Using these expressions, the boundary conditions for occurrence of stick-slip motion are examined, and the relation between properties of the stick-slip motion and frictional characteristics is explained quantitatively.
