A customer who makes oil field equipment contacted us recently, looking to upgrade parts on one of their machines. Through our discussion, we determined a custom linear guide was going to be required. They chose the Double Track Linear Guide with 1018 steel carriage plate and track spacer. The steel material of the double edge hardened track and 52100 steel rollers, combined with the steel carriage plate and spacer made for an extremely durable linear guide assembly. This design has proven to stand up to the rigors of a demanding industry like oil production.
We encourage interested engineers and machine designers to contact us directly regarding custom linear guide systems and components. Our product technicians are always available via email here.
