Linear info site

Bosch Rexroth has launched a new linear motion site at

The website provides access to product configuration tools, technical documents, product updates, and other useful information. A 3D configurator for linear modules and Cartesian systems is integrated with the online catalog for linear motion technology on Rexroth's global site. All 3D CAD generator links lead directly to the online catalog, where engineers can choose a product, configure specifications, and produce a 3D model in a variety of formats. For solid models of individual products and components, the site also offers a library of CAD files.
