Ball rail benefits for low cost applications

Ball rail benefits for low cost applications The new eLine products from Bosch Rexroth enable the use of ball rails in light machinery and simple handling and positioning systems - an attractive and cost-effective option. Developed specifically to meet the needs of simpler applications, the inexpensive eLine ball rails can be mounted on relatively uneven, un-machined surfaces, making additional cost savings possible. The eLine ball rail systems provide smoother operation, enhanced precision and greatly extended working life compared with other low-cost options, such as plastic guideways, plain bearings and cam rollers. they have high load capacity, while the use of aluminium bodies means they are up to 60percent lighter than conventional all steel ball rail products. For maximum durability, the aluminium bodies are anodised to provide effective protection against corrosion and the products incorporate wear-resistant, hardened steel tracks. In addition, eLine ball rail systems use large diameter balls - a feature which greatly increases their resistance to the damaging effects of dirt and contamination. Fixing dimensions are compatible with many other ball rail products in common use.
