Linear guideways with four rows per carriage (in X-arrangement and 45° contact angle) can handle forces from all main directions. The X-arrangement of the raceway enables easy preload installation. Moreover, the system is less sensitive for misalignment. Linear guideways of this version are usually used for adjusting and loading equipment as well as traversing units in production machines or for robot applications.
An integrated lubrication system extend the service intervals and made the linear guideways extremely low-maintenance. Moreover, linear guideways of Rodriguez are available with ball cage. The carriages can also be delivered in different versions.
Upon request, Rodriguez linear guideways are available with a metal cover strip for protection against contamination. An external lubricant tank is available for further extension of a maintenance interval.
For particularly compact designs, Rodriguez can also provide the linear guideways in the miniature versions.

Roller linear guideways
Rigid Linear Rollerguides with increased loadratings
Linear rollerguides offer increased dynamic and static loadratings due to their increased contact area of the cylindrial rolling elements. This leads to a high rigidity and supports machinetool-applications etc.

Cross roller guides from Rodriguez are characterized by an exceptionally low-friction running, an extremely compact design and the highest degree of precision. These properties make this type of enclosed guide rail especially suited for use in the medical, biotechnology and semiconductor technology as well as in the optical industry.
The cross roller guides can be installed either horizontally or vertically depending on the application. The parallel arrangement of two pairs of rails allows the guiding of a linear slide. This opens up numerous new solution possibilities.
Miniature linear guideways are especially developed for the use in smallest cross sections. Because of their precision and compactness, they achieve the maximum productivity. Rodriguez offers the standard miniature linear guideways with small and wide rails in stainless steel.
Advantages of Rodriguez miniature versions
The miniature linear guideways are perfect suitable for all applications where fast and repeatable positioning is required. These are for example clean room applications or medicine and semiconductor technique.
