Güdel’s linear systems, with its longitudinal precision guides and drivetrain components, provides high speed and acceleration and enables a moving mass weighing anywhere between ten kilos and several tons – to be positioned with the utmost accuracy.
The modular system comprises the following basic elements: guide rollers, tracks (with or without in-built racks), pinions and beams. The assembly can be employed anywhere and has several advantages over traditional recirculating ball systems. Because of its compactness and the integrated racks for the drive, it is an excellent solution in premises where space is at a premium.
The guideway system for heavy duty applications is based on standardized roller supports with three integrated roller bearings, guideways with and without racks, drive units and tubular steel profiles with guideways. the system is especially suited for high axial and radial loads, high moment ratings, high rigidity and quiet operation.
