What Are Ball Linear Guides?


Ball linear guides are a type of linear guide that uses balls to allow the smooth movement of a flat surface along an axis. These guides are often used in applications that require smooth and precise movement since the balls can significantly reduce friction in the motion of the surface.




The materials of ball linear guides can be divided into metal, non-ferrous metal, plastic, and others, with plastic being the most commonly used material. Metal is a more common material for ball linear guides.


The materials of ball linear guides include:


  1. Steel, cast iron, non-ferrous metal, plastic, and others.
  2. High-quality alloy steel, high-quality cast iron, high-quality non-ferrous metal, plastic, and others.
  3. High-quality alloy steel, high-quality cast iron, high-quality non-ferrous metal, high-quality plastic, and others.


Applications in Sectors


These devices are used in a wide range of applications, including machinery, medicine, and electronics. The balls or rollers reduce friction between the shaft and the base, allowing the shaft to move smoothly.

Another advantage of ball linear guides is that they are available in various sizes and designs. Moreover, they can be customized to meet specific application needs.

They are widely used in most sectors, including manufacturing, automation, renewable energy, mining, medicine, the automotive industry, aviation, defense, and marine, etc.


  • Ball linear guides can be used for most applications where high precision and high rigidity are needed. Some of their uses include:
  • For CNC For lifting equipment In cutting machines
  • Stamping machines
  • Packaging machines
  • Paper manufacturing machines
