The crossed roller slides incorporate the rails to provide precise linear motion with low friction at a higher load carrying capability than ball slides. The crossed roller slides are available in either a steel or aluminum body. The steel crossed roller slides offer a high support stiffness for the load, thus resulting in a straight line accuracy of .0008" per inch of travel up to 4 inches travel and .00012" per inch of travel up to 12.5". The aluminum crossed roller slides offer low cost and lightweight body that may be necessary in weight sensitive applications. The straight line accuracy of the aluminum slide is .0001" per inch of travel.
The steel or the aluminum crossed roller slides are available in a variety of sizes for applications including precision instruments, office and communications equipment, surface and tool grinders, assembly fixtures and other applications which require precise, uniform linear motion.
