INA linear recirculating ball guidance systems – a modular concept full of good ideas

Our KUVE four-row, modular linear recirculating ball guidance system is one of our proven "classics". Two basic designs are available: either robust with a full complement of rolling elements for high loads or with so-called quad spacers for quiet and highly-dynamic operation. Both designs are practically maintenance-free due to an integrated lubricant reservoir close to the raceway.

The user can put together the combination that best suits the particular application from a comprehensive range of components and accessories. This covers various carriage geometries, an integrated measuring system, toothed guideways, braking and clamping elements, end pieces made of metal or plastic, and much more.

We especially recommend KUVE-KIT for the food processing and packaging industry – a finely-matched sealing and lubrication concept for taking account of all ambient conditions. It contains versatile components such as front and additional wipers, sealing strips and long-term lubrication units. These accessories protect the running system of the guideways against contamination, ensure lubricant is provided when required and give long relubrication intervals.

Low-noise and without stick-slip: Track roller linear guidance systems in lightweight design

INA track roller linear guidance systems are products that are robust, insensitive to contamination and have been used for decades in many industrial sectors. They run smoothly with low friction and without stick-slip at speeds of up to 10 m/s. Various guideway geometries can be combined if oval or other curved tracks are required.
