Linear Guides: From Point A to Point B

April 28, 2022
A compendium of technical articles from Machine Design and NB Corp.

Developing an effective linear guide system requires understanding the environment in which the system will operate.

This eBook covers a range of topics related to linear guides. We start by looking at common mistakes to avoid when choosing guides and then discuss the value of custom solutions and custom materials, depending upon the application. We’ll then review the difference between slide guide and ball screw actuators before exploring how needle-shaped roller guides can reduce vibrations and deflections in applications. We’ll also review the essential issue of slide bushings and the most often over-looked engineering challenges they deliver.

The end goal is, of course, to get your linear guide system to deliver product and materials from Point A to Point B. That process also is not a straight line, and there are no shortcuts. This eBook is the road map to help you along that route.
