Linear guides and rails

ABSSAC concentrates on the flanged mount and square mount versions of linear guides as these are considered ideal for use with lead screws, ball screws and satellite roller screws.  By primarily using a four ball path design, within the slide, allows the guides to accept up to 30% more load and up to 30% stiffer than similar products in the market.  Please feel free to contact our knowledgeable sales team who can help you with the right selection.

By primarily using a four ball path design, within the slide, allows the guides to accept up to 30% more load and up to 30% stiffer than similar products in the market. An added bonus is that the ball bearings are retained within the housing so that should the guides come off the end of the rail, you will not be faced with all the ball bearings falling out. From experience,  this advantage can also significantly aid in the final assembly.

Typical Guide applications include;

  • Grinders
  • NC Lathes
  • Machining centres
  • Precision milling
  • Automation technology
  • Transportation technology
  • Measuring applications
  • Machines that require a high level of positional accuracy

ABSSAC also offers the advantage of supplying lightly pre-loaded heavy duty or extra heavy duty guide models to suit individual applications. When compared to other slide mechanisms such as dovetail slides, efficiency is far greater. The linear guides can carry loads in both horizontal and vertical directions. Please also note that the rails are pre-drilled for ease of fitting and can be delivered cut to your desired length at no extra cost. Please note that all guides come with dust proofing seals at each end. When the application environment requires it, ABSSAC can offer a complete range of rails and carriages in Stainless Steel.

A recent application utilised a Stainless Steel set up within a food processing plant. A standard linear rail of 30mm wide and 2 metres long along with a slightly preloaded Stainless Steel narrow type block carriage enabled a 20kN dynamic load to be accurately moved. Supplied with pre-drilled mounting holes both price and delivery secured the order.

Available rail widths from 15mm to 65mm cater from the lightest to the heaviest load.  If your application requires an accurate support and guide, our ex-stock range of linear rails may be the answer to your design challenges. Rails can be supplied from 100mm to 4000mm in length and in some cases can be attached to the application from beneath.
