The miniature linear guides consist of a stainless steel rail with a unique re-circulating ball design in the carriage, which delivers smooth motion, low noise and high accuracy. The guides provide high levels of stiffness to enable the carriage to operate at higher speeds and with a 45º contact angle and a gothic profile design incorporated into the carriage, resulting in an equal load capacity in all directions, they provide high load and moment capacity. With their built-in lubrication reservoirs they provide an effective, low maintenance solution, further enhanced by specially designed seals to prevent dust and foreign objects from entering the system.
Linear guides are available with 3 mm to 15 mm wide rails and lengths up to 870 mm, offered in standard sizes or custom lengths, with carriages available in a variety of widths and lengths. Options are available for both lubrication and seals, with different mounting options accommodated via tapped or counter-bored mounting holes, and options for accuracies and pre-loading of the bearings where additional stiffness and precision are required.
Reliance’s cut-to-length capability means that customers can order small quantities and samples for product trials or prototyping on a reduced lead-time.
