Metric 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.

Force measuring device for nitrogen cylinders up to 6300 daN


Basic frame with hydraulic pump and various adapters.


All nitrogen cylinders up to a diameter of 120 mm and an initial force of up to 6300 daN can be checked with this force measuring device.

There are 3 different load cells (SZ 8078) that are interchangeable and, depending on the need, must be ordered separately.

Measuring range 25 – 250 daN (SZ 8078.00250)
Measuring range 100 – 1000 daN (SZ 8078.01000)
Measuring range 630 – 6300 daN (SZ 8078.06300)

A load cell from 1600 - 16000 daN is available for nitrogen cylinders with higher pressures. This load cell can be used on a press to check the large nitrogen cylinders.


Order load cell separately.

Testing process:

  • Install the load cell with the required measuring range.
  • Insert the distance bolt for height adjustment.
  • Position the nitrogen cylinder in the corresponding fixture.
  • Perform the force test by pumping up the hydraulic cylinder.
  • Following the conclusion of the force test, open the valve at the hydraulic cylinder and push the cylinder downwards. Remove the nitrogen cylinder.
