Linear Slides & Carriages
Linear slides and carriages are components of a linear guide rail system that is typically designed for moving objects of high load capacity with accuracy and precision. Applications include moving large machining objects such as machining tables, or transporting large products along a line, or for motions related to robotic pick and place machines, or for systems providing overhead guidance and transport, to name a few. Due to its ball bearings, a linear slide provides smooth, low friction, unidirectional movement along a track. A linear carriage slides along a compatible rail of the same series and width. Items may vary by dynamic load capacity, dimensions and other considerations. Additional components of such systems may include linear shafts support rails, linear guides, linear seals and rings, and linear square shafting.
