Linear Rail and Guides

Linear guides are the important bits that keep everything in line and the machine accuracy perfect. Be it a relatively simple slide runner or a fully rigid carbon linear guide with ball screw movement and servo motor positioning drive, correct choice of unit for the application is essential.


THK are the partner of choice for our linear guides and are happy to discuss application details and characteristics alongside OEM, to ensure the right unit is specified.


From a cost-effective linear rail and carriage assembly, cut to size at OEM, through to a full bespoke caged ball curved slide rail, we have the product to make light of the most arduous movement


Typical applications for linear guides are:

  • CNC machine tools – high speed slides with rigidity accuracy to keep machine tolerances low.
  • Robotics – miniature rails for grippers, heavy duty bearings for moving robot axis
  • Automatic doors – low friction slides for moving heavy doors with ease.
  • Medical machinery – high accuracy and rigidity to keep resolution and accuracy high on scanners.
  • Automotive industry – large long linear guides for automotive carpet cutting.
