Round Shaft Technology - Linear Bearings & Linear Guides
Round Shaft Technology utilizes precision round shafting as the guideway and linear plain bearings or linear ball bearings for movement. While the shafting is often hardened steel, other materials such as stainless steel and hard anodized aluminum are available in the standard industry sizes. RST self-lubricating linear plain bearings and linear ball bearings come in a wide variety of configurations and offer solutions for a broad range of applications. Support rails for round shafting coupled with open bearings offer additional rigidity for heavy loads, while flanged bearings and pillow blocks offer a variety of mounting configurations.
