Linear shaft supports, also called shaft support blocks, are components that position the shafts on which linear bushings or bearings slide.Typically two shafts are arranged parallel to each other and supported by four shaft supports. A carriage with installed bearings or bushings is mounted on the shafts allowing the carriage smooth linear motion. The shafts must be accurately aligned parallel to each other or the carriage will not operate smoothly.
Easy-Access™ Standard Profile linear shaft supports are available in the same height and footprint as common industry supports.
They can be used to replace common shaft supports without any changes to the shaft location or relocating the base mounting holes.
Easy-Access™ Low Profile linear shaft supports are the only standard Low Profile linear shaft supports available in industry.
