Rail Linear Guides

The 400 Series profile rail linear guides deliver accurate, reliable, and compliant linear motion in automation applications. The guides are available in 4 meter lengths, in sizes from 15 to 45 mm in 5-mm increments, for extended joint-free rail transfer. Double-faced ball-track bearing arrangements simplify installation and allow for equal load-carrying capacity in all directions. The 400 Series is available with standard or ball-cage carriages that use the same rail design.

The guides handle loads from 9,800 to 129,500 N. They feature a polymer ball-return tube that reduces noise while retaining lubrication.
