1 min read


Recirculating units enable an unlimited stroke with linear motion all in a compact design. Schneeberger, the renowned Swiss German manufacturer has launched this new range of products through Basingstoke based LG Motion Ltd and thus adds yet more depth to the already wide range of motion control products available through the company.

The units are supplied with either ball or roller bearings and are able to support rigid and compact designs with an unlimited stroke. The standard unit is also combined with Schneeberger linear bearings types R and RD. The components are manufactured from through hardened tool steel with aluminium transmission parts as well as plastic wipers and damping elements. Stainless steel versions of the unit are available on request.

The units deliver a high level of accuracy and rigidity with an unlimited stroke.  They may typically be used in both normal environments as well as cleanrooms or in a vacuum. The range of sizes and options are suitable for small to heavy loads and it is also possible to even out minor angular errors with the units.

The recirculating units are available in sizes 1 – 12 and come in various lengths.  For small to medium loads the ball bearing option types SK and SKD with damping elements is recommended.

For heavy loads the SR unit with crosswise rollers is recommended and for vacuum and cleanroom applications the SKC with ceramic balls should be used.

Based in Basingstoke, LG Motion Ltd design, develop and manufacture motion control technology components and systems to meet the exacting requirements of research and academic institutions and the wider industry.

Complementing its own design and manufacturing capability LG Motion also have close partnerships with a number of well-known global motion control specialists including Schneeberger. Schneeberger have been designing and manufacturing linear guides and frictionless tables for over 90 years. Schneeberger manufactures a broad range of products, from linear and profiled guideways through to complete linear-drive positioning systems.
