Linear guides are one of the most important components required for the development of automated or computer controlled equipment. They enable smooth and accurate motion for the primary machine functions and can be used on covers, guards, and equipment drawers.
When you set out to design a machine you survey the market of existing components, what you used before, what someone told you to use, and even, what's readily available. In the process, when you're selecting what's already available, you're limited to your design freedom.
With Extruded Profile Guides, you can regain design freedom; you can design and source a tailored linear guide specific to your application which allows you to stay ahead of competition, reduce bill of materials complexity, flexibility of length, and secure your supply chain.
