SteadyRail uses round shafting and ball bushings to provide smooth, low friction motion. With an emphasis on simplicity and durability, SteadyRail is available in several different stages and versions making it a motion solution that can do it all. Use SteadyRail as an undriven linear guide or as a ball screw driven linear actuator with the easy attachment of a NEMA 23 or NEMA 34 motor. Save design time and simplify your supply chain with pre-configured SteadyRail motion systems that have standardized hole patterns for mounting and attaching.
SteadyRail comes standard with self-aligning pillow block bearings in several different sizes as well as in several different support options. Each size includes either single or double wide pillow blocks in a standard series for simple installation, adjustable series with adjustable clearance, or the open series for long stroke applications. Additionally, SteadyRail is available with four different end support systems including end supported, continuously supported, double end supported, and double continuously supported.

BW can supply complete and affordable linear motion systems. The continuously supported 3B systems can be supplied with stepper motors, servo motors, controllers, drives and even an HMI user interface. We use standard motor mounting configurations for these continuously supported systems. Call our Application Engineering team to discuss your requirements.
