Miniature linear plain guidance systems are ready-to-fit,maintenance-free guidance systems. They have good sliding characteristics, are suitable for dry running, have adjustable clearance and are highly resistant to chemical influences.
In terms of design space, miniature plain guidance systems have the same mounting dimensions as miniature linear recirculating ball bearing and guideway assemblies. The units are produced in various carriage sizes and guideway lengths, giving cost-effective designs.
Miniature linear plain guidance systems are linear locating bearings with at least one carriage. They can support forces from all directions apart from the direction of motion and moments about all axes, operate largely free from stick-slip, have low wear and are insensitive to contamination.
