Linear guides permits linear movement with the aid of rolling elements and attain extremely precise linear movement. Linear guides from THK and Rollon.
A linear guideway permits linear movement with the aid of rolling elements. By using balls or rollers between the rail and block, a linear guideway can attain an extremely precise linear movement. Compared with a standard sliding guide, the friction coefficient here is just one fiftieth. The good efficiency and zero play mean that the linear guideway can be used in various ways.
