Linear systems - The ideal combination of guidance and drive

Linearsystems from Rodriguez combine the advantages of linear guiding systems and mechanical drive mechanisms in a compact and simple way. Rodriguez ALS series linear slides are equipped with precision guide shafts. Selfaligning linear ball bushings as well as standard versions or fullsteel linearballbushings are available as rolling bearings. Additionally these units can be equipped with selflubricating linear slide bushings.

Rodriguez linear slides offer the user a choice between the movable (version A) or the fixable slide (version B). Both variants are available with or without bellows (option F). If extremely high loads should exert an influence on the linear slide, the use of supported precision shafts is recommended. Ballscrew-driven systems (ALSK), trapezoidalscrew-driven systems and beltdriven units are available. 

 In addition to the linear slides, the Rodriguez portfolio also includes linear systems with Linear Guideways as guides, sliding guides and roller-bearing guideways. Connected to an aluminium profile, this is a very compact and high-performance linear system. These systems can be driven by ballscrews or belts.

Also in the program: Linearguideway-tables are the ideal system for linear motions with high rigidity requirements. The base plate of the rail guide tables consists of machined aluminum profiles or steel with stop angles. The Rodriguez ball rail guides built into the stiff axis with four long guide carriages per table part. The drive is optionally performed either with a ball screw drive (RSTK), linear motors (RSTL) or a belts (RSTZ).
