The miniature version of the ball rail systems has been developed for a variety of applications which require ball-bearing longitudinal guides with extremely small size and high load-bearing capacity:
- Textile machinery
- Laboratory automation
- Medical technology
- Automation technology
- Fine mechanics
- Handling and robotics
- Semiconductor industry
- Optical industry
The guide units have exactly the same load ratings in all four high load directions, high load-bearing capacity in all directions of load, including high load torques about all axes, due to a design of largest possible ball sizes.
They are characterized by optimal discharge and low friction. From size 15 onwards, there is a lubricating nipple on the face and a lateral relubrication option.
Optionally available from size 9 is a cover strip made of stainless steel to close the fixing holes. All steel parts of the runner block and the guide rail are made of corrosion-resistant, martensitic steel.
