A guide wheel is used in conjunction with mounted linear bearings. Guide wheels work to guide them along the track of the transmission system they are a part of. As linear bearings help support and stabilize rotating shafts, guiding wheels act as such, a guiding mechanism. Some of our guide wheels have threaded stems, while others have smooth bores for attachment. If looking for additional parts to accommodate your transmission equipment, we have linear guides and linear shafts and support rails.
