Press Release Summary:
Based on Simplicity bearing liner technology, Mini-RailÂ® self-lubricating, screw-driven, miniature linear guides/slides provide compact, smooth, and quiet linear motion control. Precision ball bearings support lead screw and pre-loaded drive nut. Mini-Rail with lead screw requires no sealing, emits no particulates, and is corrosion-resistant. Applications include semiconductor processing, clean rooms, medical devices, and material handling.
Original Press Release:
New Mini-Rail® Self-lubricating Linear Guides/Slides with Integrated Lead Screw!
ROCKFORD, IL - October 20, 2003 - - - - Based on Pacific Bearing Company's proven Simplicity bearing liner technology, the NEW Mini-Rail self-lubricating, screw driven miniature linear guides/slides provide a compact, robust, light weight, low cost, smooth and quiet linear motion control solution. They are available in different sizes to handle a broad range of loads and feature different leads to optimize speed and positioning. Their small footprint allows them to readily fit where other systems can't!
Mini-Rail lead screw linear guides/slides maintain their precision control and accuracy thanks to design elements such as the precision ball bearings supporting the lead screw and pre-loaded drive nut. The compact design also features fewer parts than other slides and systems - meaning minimal maintenance. Identical to the Mini-Rail product family, the new Mini-Rail with lead screw requires no sealing, emits no particulates, corrosion resistant, and tolerates high temperature extremes. With 6 different lead screws and available standard motor-mounts, the Mini-Rail with lead screw is the ideal slide/guide for a variety of applications - from semiconductor processing, clean rooms, scanning and input devices to packaging machinery, medical devices, and material handling applications.
Pacific Bearing is the manufacturer of the Simplicity® self-lubricating linear bearings, slides and shafting, Dolphin Guides® two-piece linear slides, Redi-Rail® linear guides, Mini-Rail® miniature linear guides/slides and the Hevi-Rail® combination linear bearing systems.
