Linear Bearings & Guides are anti-friction devices that provide smooth accurate precise guidance for linear motion.  They are designed to provide continuous travel over the full length of the rail enabling near drag free linear motion.  Capable of operating under high loads, high speeds, high accelerations, and a variety of environments and demands, linear bearings are made to extremely tight tolerances, and are the most effective solution for virtually all precision linear motion guidance challenges.

In 1 hour you will learn:

  • Introduction
    • Linear Bearing Types
    • Typical Applications
    • Design Considerations
      • Basic Parameters
      • Application Requirements
      • Optional Features
      • Design Calculations
  • Applications
    • Sizing and Selection examples
      • Transportation
      • Materal Handling
      • Factory Automation
      • Machine Tool
      • Packaging
      • Medical
    • Using available design tools and calculations
  • Additional Support

This live online seminar is an event for mechanical motion design engineers at all experience levels.  The seminar has been designed to give solid, practical information - not a sales pitch.  Register today to learn how to design and build better machines with linear bearing and guide technology.

Linear Bearings and Guides offer the following design benefits:

  • Anti-friction movement - low drive power required
  • Low noise
  • Smooth running - no stick-slip
  • High speed capabilities
  • High rigidity
  • High loads
  • High accuracy
  • Ease of installation and use
  • Self-alignment capability
  • Long Life
  • Clean - less particle generation
  • Cooler running
  • Contamination resistance

Register now to learn how to improve your ability to use Linear Bearings and Guides in your next mechanical motion design.
