Linear bearings that are ideal for use in short travel, high accuracy applications such as measuring instruments and computer manufacturing have been recently announced by Unimatic Engineers.

Precise metal (PM)linear bearings are `frictionless’ precision slides available in various sections with matching ball and roller diameters and a large selection of standard lengths.

The slides are available for applications requiring movements from a few millimetres up to 200mm, and require only a force of a few grams to move.
