Linear Motion Guide Offers Smooth Travel

Oct. 1, 1998

Using a retainer that separates and aligns the recirculating ball bearings for a smoother and more consistent gliding motion, these linear motion guides eliminate heat normally associated with ball-to-ball friction. A torque deviation of 1/10th of standard designs further improves accuracy and consistency of operation. Located within the ball cages are grease pockets designed to retain lubricant and minimize long-term maintenance.
