STEINEL guide units are highly precise and, with loading capacities of up to 8,750 N/cm for roller guides, they are highly resilient. Number of strokes up to 800 strokes for bronze-coated sliding guides and sliding speeds of max. 40 m/min for ball guides guarantee maximum productivity.
All of STEINEL's ball and roller guides are pre-loaded and absolutely free of clearance. Using precision steel balls and profile rollers of the same sort guarantees top precision. Thanks to fixed sizes, ball and roller cages are freely interchangeable in one and the same guide.
For high force absorption, we rely on a high density of load-bearing balls or rollers. In the case of uniform force distribution, individual ball and roller rows are offset against each other.
