Our high-precision, durable guide units are designed for universal use in the fields of toolmaking, machine engineering, measuring device design and apparatus engineering. In addition to our large range of standard guide units, our customer-specific guides make it possible to implement tailor-made solutions optimally, quickly and economically – with maximum quality and extended lifetime guaranteed.
You can find the right guide to meet any requirements in our huge range of standard guide units:
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.
For tool designs and applications that move away from conventional punching technology or for non-standard diameters and lengths, we can develop and manufacture tailor-made solutions in line with your specifications, e.g.:
We would be happy to advise you and work with you to develop your own custom guide.
