Product Details

The 500 Series Roller profile rail rigidity is achieved by using the equivalent of a back-to-back bearing arrangement, complemented by special rollers that are crowned to prevent roller edge loading when misalignment is present. This results in lower elastic deformation under load compared to a ball carriage or double faced roller bearing arrangement. Roller guides have an increased load capacity over the ball profile rail as a result of the increased contacting surface across the length of the roller.
