Linear rolling bearings and linear plain bearings

Flat cage guidance systems


Where linear locating or non-locating bearings with extremely high load carrying capacity and very smooth running are required for limited stroke lengths, flat cage guidance systems can be used. The guidance systems have extremely high rigidity, high accuracy and low friction and require significantly less space than other linear guidance systems.

Flat cage guidance systems comprise a guideway arrangement separated by flat cages containing needle rollers, cylindrical rollers or balls.
