Each row of balls runs through the guide section in the end plate made of synthetic resin. The end plate guides the balls smoothly to help them change the direction and return smoothly. The resulting linear motion is smooth, quiet and consistent.
Supporting loads in various directions
The contact angle of the balls is such that the LM Guide can carry reverse radial and lateral loads as well as moments in all direction.
Compact LM guide
The LM Guide type GSR is as low profile as possible. This lowers the center of gravity, resulting in stable linear motion. Machines and devices featuring LM Guides type GSR are compact.
