What is best? Linear guides with balls or rollers?

There is a discussion about which solution is best in linear guides, whether balls or rollers give the best results. But the fact is that the question is wrongly posed.


How to solve misalignment and parallelism errors in linear movement

Completely avoiding deviations in parallelism in linear motion applications is almost impossible. However, there are ways to handle them so that you can facilitate the installation of the rail guide and, in the long...


Advantages and disadvantages of using ready-made linear units

When designing a linear motion application, you can either choose to build the unit yourself using separate components or choose a complete unit ready for installation. There are advantages and disadvantages to both,...


Ball screw or timing belt, when should you use what?

The choice between ball screw and timing belt is determined by which properties are most important for your linear drive. Do you need to prioritize accuracy or speed? Do you have limited space? Is it important that the...
