About Linear Guides

Profiled linear guide

Profile rail linear guides utilise recirculating ball bearings (or rollers) within a raceway formed on one side from the rail profile and the other within the carriage.

Linear guides offer high load capacities combined with smooth and accurate movement.

Linear guides are the bed rock of many automated processes and machines. They are available from size 15 all the way up to size 150.
