Miniature cage guidance systems

Miniature carriage units

Miniature carriage units with cylindrical roller flat cages are corrosion-resistant, ready-to-fit cage guidance systems for limited stroke lengths. They have a high load carrying capacity, high rigidity and high accuracy whilst requiring very little space. Due to their compact design, they can often be used to replace guidance systems that require significantly more space. The units are produced in numerous carriage and guideway lengths, giving cost-effective designs.

Miniature carriage units are linear locating bearings. They can support forces from all directions – apart from the direction of motion – and moments about all axes, are more rigid than linear recirculating ball bearing and guideway assemblies and run very smoothly and accurately.

The units are particularly suitable for short stroke lengths, low-friction movements, oscillating movements and high loads with high rigidity. Their preferred areas of use include medical equipment, electrical engineering, robotics and laboratory equipment as well as applications under clean room conditions.

Miniature linear guidance sets

Miniature linear guidance sets with cylindrical roller flat cages are corrosion-resistant, ready-to-fit locating bearings for limited stroke lengths and are preloaded once fitted. These linear guidance systems have high load carrying capacity, high rigidity and high accuracy whilst requiring very little space. Since the distance between the guidance elements can be varied in design, the elements can be easily matched to predetermined adjacent constructions. The sets are supplied in many different lengths for specific applications.

The sets are particularly suitable for short stroke lengths, low-friction movements, oscillating movements and high loads with high rigidity.
