This paper presents the studies of stick-slip friction, presliding displacement and its influence on hunting. Experimental studies reveal that presliding displacement could affect the stability of hunting. A modified Coulomb friction model integrating presliding displacement in the microsliding regime is proposed to demonstrate such effect. Finally, step responses obtained from experiments and from the modified model are compared. These comparisons yield the conclusion that the transition of friction between the sticking state and the sliding state is smooth and continuous, not abrupt. Such a smooth transition of friction is critical to the studies of systems performing high-speed cyclic motion.
