BRAND CONCEPT

A NEW Roller Guide
for the NEW Generation

Roller guides support the development of industry and society, and demand for higher performing roller guides are increasing. To create a roller guide that meets expectations for the new generation, this product was named the

FEATURES

A new, innovative, roller guide.
An integration of ultra-high rigidity, ultra-high motion accuracy,
and ultra-high damping capability.

Structure_img

High Rigidity

Deformation decreased by reducing the load,
and the EXRAIL was able to achieve 1.5 times higher rigidity
than conventional roller guides.

● Incorporation of multiple needle rollers, which are longer and smaller in diameter
than conventional rollers, reduces the amount of load per roller.

● Reduced load means less deformation, and the EXRAIL was able to achieve 1.5 times higher rigidity.

High_ Rigidity_Img

High Precision Motion

Reduced rolling element passage vibration to less than half
by dispersing load on to multiple miniature rollers.

● By dispersing the load on to multiple miniature rollers,
the rolling element passage vibration is reduced to less than half.
*The periodic postural change due to the amount and position of the rolling elements supporting the load.

High Damping

Frictional resistance generated
by multiple rollers improves vibration damping capability
to more than 1.5 times than that of conventional types.

● Dynamic friction becomes relatively larger since the number of rollers is increased,
and time for convergence of oscillation is shortened.
This allows vibration damping to be more than 1.5 times higher
than that of conventional types in the market.

TECHNOLOGY

Needle rollers and the latest innovative technology are incorporated
to meet expectations for a roller guide of the new generation.

Incorporation of Needle Rollers

Multiple rollers allow the load to be dispersed.
In addition, longer roller length increases the contact
surface between the roller and the block/rail,
and reduces contact pressure.

Long-term Maintenance Free

Long-term Maintenance Free

Contact of lubricated resin material and rollers contribute to extended re-lubrication intervals.
