Linear Rail Systems - Fixed Rail & Mobile Carrier
A linear rail is a fixed beam cut to length, where any number of carriers can move independently within it, depending on the load required and spacing of the fixture which needs to be moved. Usual applications are doors, machine guarding and seating.
Using smooth running aluminium rails re-enforced with hardened steel raceways with an HRC of 60, this is an economical alternative to other precision systems already on the market. Stocked in lengths up to 3000mm across the range, we can supply with confidence. The Compact Rail has been developed for demanding, high stroke applications such as train doors and machine guarding. The bearings are in sealed units and not the recirculating ball bearing type which are open to the elements.
We have a further three ranges of high quality linear rails in our budget section. These do not have the hardened steel shafts, but utilise the same principle. Priced for applications requiring precise linear motion but without the extra strengthening required in high speed machine guarding.
Priced to compete with other systems which offer less precision and performance. Stocked and available to buy online. All of our rails and carriers are ordered separately and are delivered factory fitted. For volume OEM discounts, please consult our sales dept.
