Numerous factors must be considered when adding a linear guide feature to a piece of industrial equipment. Among these are the type of linear guide product and the components already present in the equipment for the linear guide features to be mounted on. Traditional linear guide products such as plain bearings, linear bearings, and profile rails all have varying mounting characteristics and requirements, though all require more machining and labor than new alternatives. Within this white paper, we will examine considerations for adding linear guide features to industrial equipment, including an exploration of conventional methods as well as newer alternatives that can offer assembly advantages.
