Friction guides use a plain surface to give a smooth linear slide without the
need for ball bearings or rollers. The lack of exposed moving parts makes this
product range ideal for dirty environments and they can be used in and around
many types of liquids - a very versatile solution. Even for cleaner
environments, this is often the best solution for its simplicity. Your
maintenance costs are lowered as no lubrication is needed and they are suitable
for high pressure wash down.
Three friction guides types are available; non-adjust, manual adjust and auto
These three friction guides' designs have all contact surfaces in the bearing
block and engineered to produce uniform wear to give extended life in operation. The
height, width and hole pitches all refer to the ISO 12090 standard.
The guides are designed to be used on our 1m or 2m hard anodised
aluminium track; two or more tracks can be butted together to create any length
of friction slide track for your application. Like the guides, these tracks are
engineered to be hardwearing giving peace of mind for a high service life.
This is a lightweight solution, but exceptionally durable and due to its
simplicity; they are highly unlikely to break down and can accommodate high
static loads. They have a very quiet operation, are low vibration and corrosion resistant.
The myriad benefits of this solution make it an ideal choice for many types of
The 115 Linear motion friction guides are the latest development under the
Accuride brand. This range of plain bearing friction guides for automation and
handling systems uses only the highest quality materials for hassle-free installations.
