Redi-Rail is a great alternative to profile rail, where high speeds, precision, and moderate load applications are required. It offers strength, ease of installation, and corrosion resistance making it the perfect linear motion solution across a broad range of applications such as automation, machine transfer, and material handling. Redi-Rail linear guides are available in inch formats, or in metric systems equipped with wipers and patented side pre-load adjustment.
This is one of two articles that explores the properties and features of Redi-Rail linear systems. In this article we focus on establishing load orientation, fastening rails, and setting your preload.
