Power transmission is characterised by movements that are either rotational or translational. Many machines make linear movements, sometimes very short but sometimes movements of several metres, such as with CNC machines or drilling lines. A linear guide is also called a linear bearing. There are various types of linear guides and the choice is largely determined by the degree of load, the speed and the required accuracy.
Q-Bearings supplies a wide range of guide types and various brands, which enables us to offer the right product for the application and price.
