Our large range of linear motion components offers everything you need for aplications requiring uniform motion systems. The range includes: rail sets, linear guideways and rails, miniature linear guide systems, rotary stages, slide assemblies, lead screws and nuts, ball screws and telescopic slides.
As specialists in linear motion systems we offer you a choice of materials and sizes. So whether you need lightweight aluminium rails for use in aviation applications or stainless steel components for when exposure to water or corrosive chemicals is a factor, our knowledgable technical engineers are always on hand to provide assistance.
Make sure you request a free Linear Motion Handbook here and utilise our free CAD to help you save time planning your projects.
Unflanged carriages for aluminium linear guideways. Ideal for applications where weight efficiency is a priority, such as for aviation parts.
Flanged carriages for aluminium linear guideways. Ideal for applications where weight efficiency is a priority, such as for aviation parts.
Space efficient miniature linear carriages. Corrosion resistance stainless steel body, with hardened stainless steel ball bearings.
Corrosion resistant stainless steel body. Other rail sizes available on request. Ideal for applications where space efficiency is a priority such as aviation.
Our standard range of captive screws with threads sizes from M3 to M12. Provide extra safety by never leaving the application to which they are fastened.
Captive Phillips drive pan head screws available in M2.5 to M6. Made from stainless steel.
These are special thin diameter head type captive thumb screws and are available in M3, M4, M4, M5 and M6. Lengths from 8mm to 60mm.
Miniature fixed support units designed for small diameter lead screws. For matching floating version see L1355.
Miniature flanged and fixed support units designed for small diameter lead screws. For matching floating version see L1356.
Stainless steel, high precision lead screws. We are able to provide a wide range of diameters from 4 - 20mm. Screw only.
Automotion Aluminium profile rails and ball bearing runner blocks are designed especially for applications requiring a precise linear guide system with a huge degree of corrosion resistance. The rails consist of profiled aluminium having two pressed-in hardened stainless steel raceways for the stainless steel balls of the runner blocks to run along. Advantages are the light weight and corrosive resistant materials. Fixing holes in the attachment surfaces enable machine parts to be directly mounted onto the runner blocks. With this combination it is possible for us to offer a guide system which achieves a good price/performance ratio.
Speed - vmax = 2 m/s
Acceleration - amax = 30 m/s2
Temperature - T = 0o - 60oC
Our rails can be used in a broad range of applications. Especially in light machinery, handling technology, jigs and fixtures, assembly technology, manual displacement systems, machine enclosures, door – and window technology, display systems, aerospace, medical, food and many more.
Our aluminium rail guides cannot be used in the following applications:
We are pleased to say our products have never been so popular; we are experiencing unprecedented levels of demand.
Unfortunately our normal levels of customer service and timescales for despatch are being impacted. We are making every effort to bring despatch times back to normal levels, and would ask you to bear with us while we integrate and train new staff.
Currently despatch of in-stock parts are running at 48 to 72 hours from receipt of order - if you do have goods requiring most urgent delivery, we would ask you to contact us with your express requirements and we will do our best to accomodate your requirements.
Many thanks for your continued business
