When you need a precise, integrated linear motion solution that’s ready-fit for installation. Designed specifically for situations where continuous support is impossible or impractical, these simple assemblies are engineered to minimize guide bar sag and provide both straightness of motion and dynamic response that is often an order-of-magnitude better than conventional rolling-element bearings.
Our engineers can guide you on the right component for your application.
Air bearings are tested by our expert measurement team.
Solutions designed for your application.
Whether your challenge is precision, speed or environment, we can offer unmatched experience.
The simplest of the slides, End-Supported Air Slides are designed for use in situations where continuous support of the slide is impossible or impractical. End-Supported slides are often used in a gantry in traditional X/Y axis configurations, yet can also be used in the Z axis by fixing the stage and moving the guide bar for controlling probes.
