Schneeberger have wide range of linear and profile guidance applications.
- MONORAIL MR
High rigidity, great dynamic and static load carrying capacity, outstanding running smoothness and the total enclosure of the carriage are the main features of the MONORAIL guideway. These properties result in higher machining rates while enhancing geometrical accuracy and surface quality of the machined workpieces. Our highly rigid MONORAIL provides improved vibration behavior, smaller vibration amplitudes and thus extends tool life.
- MONORAIL BM
SCHNEEBERGER’s MONORAIL BM linear ball guides features excellent dynamic properties and many commercial benefits. Designed with a small number of cleverly arranged components, it provides for excellent running properties due to the small number of transitions in the ball tracks, which lead to very quiet running, low pulsation and low friction as well as high travel speeds. The use of a trapezoidal rail section results in an extremely rigid guideway coupled with a substantial reduction in servicing time as additional wipers can be changed without dismantling the carriage. Complete sealing of the carriage guarantees maximum reliability coupled with a long service life. This robust and economical guideway rounds off SCHNEEBERGER’s range of products for industrial applications with high demands on speed, reliability and consistant running properties.
- Profiled miniature guideway MINI-X
MINIRAIL – the range of high-precision guideways MlNlRAlL represents the latest generation of miniature guideways for sophisticated applications.
- MINISCALE PLUS is based on the proven miniature guideway MINIRAIL. Consequently, the guidance-technical specifications of MINISCALE PLUS also comply with MINIRAIL.The range includes eight rail widths which can be combined with up to four carriage sizes.
embodies the newest generation of miniature slides for extremely demanding applications. They are highly robust and reliable in every application due to their smooth performance, precision and long service lifetime.
- Linear bearing type RN
The RN linear bearing represents a consistent optimization of the R linear bearing. Thanks to the enlarged contact surface of the roller with the guideway, the performance capacitiy is significantly increased, with unchanged fitting dimensions.
- Linear bearing type RNG
The RNG linear bearing is a modern, high-performance design and was created through the consistent optimization of the R type bearing. Highly loadable guidance systems with the smallest dimensions can be realized. Through the high performance with comparably small bearing cross-sections, an unrivalled economic efficiency results in many applications.
- Linear bearing type R
With the type R, SCHNEEBERGER introduced the first standardized linear bearing in the world. Today it is recognized as an industrial standard. The bearing can be used with rollers or balls and is suitable for many applications with medium to high demands. Combined with SCHNEEBERGER recirculating units, configurations with an unlimited stroke are feasible.
- Linear bearing type RD
The RD linear bearing complements the R type by providing space-saving solutions. In addition, the use of R and RD linear bearings provides a substantially more economical guidance concept in the user’s construction. Combined with SCHNEEBERGER recirculating units, configurations with an unlimited stroke are feasible.
- Linear bearing type N/O
The N/O linear bearing has been designed for use with needle cages. These anti-friction guideways are suitable for high-load applications. Together with the closely arranged needle cage the bearing has a very high rigidity. The SCHNEEBERGER plastic and steel composite cage used in these guides gives less resistance to motion than similar needle cages.
- Linear bearing type M/V
Type M/V linear bearings are equipped with needle cages and are suitable for high load applications. The SCHNEEBERGER composite cages used with these guides ensure that there is little resistance to motion as compared to other similar needle bearing guides, while providing very great rigidity.
- Ball recirculating units type SK
The type SK recirculating unit is equipped with balls and is suitable for low to medium loading. It is used with SCHNEEBERGER type R or RD linear bearings and can be uniformly loaded in every direction. Hence, space saving designs may be realized. Some sizes can be additionally fitted with damping elements (type designation SKD). These provide smoother operation but also have a somewhat reduced load carrying capacity.
- Ball recirculating units type SKD
The type SKD recirculating unit is equipped with balls and is suitable for low to medium loading. It is used with SCHNEEBERGER type R or RD linear bearings and can be uniformly loaded in every direction. Hence, space saving designs may be realized. Some sizes can be additionally fitted with damping elements (type designation SKD). These provide smoother operation but also have a somewhat reduced load carrying capacity.
- Ball recirculating unit type SKC
The recirculating unit type SKC provides unlimited stroke and equal load carrying capacity in all directions. The SKC, designed for low-to-medium loading conditions, operates dry – lubrication is not required! These units, used with SCHNEEBERGER linear bearings type R or RD, are drop-in replacements for SCHNEEBERGER SK and SR recirculating units. The combination of coated stainless steel, ceramic and teflon makes this recirculating unit suitable for lubrication free operation in high vacuum and clean room applications
- Roller recirculating unit type SR
The SR recirculating unit has cross rollers and is suitable for medium to high loading. Dimensionally interchangeable with type SK, the type SR is also used with SCHNEEBERGER type R or RD linear bearings, but offers greater load carrying capacity and rigidity.
- Recirculating unit type NRT and preload wedge type NRV
The roller recirculating units NRT are designed for medium to heavy loads, high rigidity and high precision. Together with suitable SCHNEEBERGER linear bearings, adjusting wedge or attaching part ingenious constructions can be realized.
