Our products provide smooth, accurate motion, reliability and long-term, maintenance-free operation to improve packaging machine productivity.

We enhance packaging machine productivity and uptime with motion components that combine accuracy, smooth motion, reliability and durability. Our lineup of linear guides, for example, feature outstanding metallurgical properties and come in a wide range of sizes and configurations to fit various applications from lightweight load requirements to guides with maximum stiffness and resistance to heavy loads. And they offer the maintenance and protection features that packaging applications require.

Some packaging machines are sensitive to contamination, whether via cardboard particles or lubricants that come into direct contact with linear guides. That’s why many of our linear guides offer built-in lubrication technology—called C-Lube—which is designed to release oil slowly through direct continual contact with the linear guide’s rolling elements. We’ll keep contamination contained so you’ll achieve maximum machine uptime in this productivity-driven industry.

We also offer cost-effective positioning tables that combine precision with compact size—two important criteria in ever-shrinking packaging equipment, as well as ball spline rolling guides and linear bushings. Customers can choose standard carbon steel products or stainless steel material for use in wet conditions typically found in food processing facilities.

Technical Advantages

  • Linear motion rolling guides offer outstanding metallurgical properties to deliver smooth motion, accurate performance, good rigidity and a long lifetime.
  • Interchangeable linear guides allow users to mix, match and swap out slide units, rails and other parts to modify a system as needs change, saving both time and money.
  • Many products and accessories are offered in stainless steel versions for use in wet or clean room conditions.
  • Products with built-in C-Lube lubrication achieve long-term, maintenance-free operation.
