Carriage Accessories

Caged ball option

The caged ball option features balls encapsulated in a flexible polymer chain that circulates around the ball track with the balls. Carriages with the caged ball option utilize the same rail as the standard carriage. Several advantages to using the caged ball are:
  • Noise reduced by 6 dB
  • Running smoothness increased by more than 30% over standard carriage
  • Lubrication is better contained in ball circulation
