Miniature guides deliver high accuracy in harsh environments

Schaeffler has expanded its range of miniature linear guidance systems, offering machine builders and designers lighter, more compact designs that provide optimum positional accuracy and repeatability, even in harsh environments. The miniature plain guidance systems are linear locating bearings with at least one carriage. The units can support forces from all directions - apart from the direction of motion - and moments about all axes.

The guides are ready-to-fit and maintenance-free, for stroke lengths of up to 3m. The carriage and guideway are both constructed from extruded, anodised aluminium and so offer high resistance to chemical substances and other contaminants. The guides are ideal for use in lightweight, aluminium machine designs, as well as applications with low loads, moment loads, dry running or harsh environments. Operating temperatures are from -40degC up to 80degC.

New to Schaeffler's existing range of miniature, profiled rail linear guidance systems is the KWEM double row miniature ball monorail guidance system, which comes in four sizes with corresponding guideways (TKDM).
