This is particularly successful when the framework conditions and influences under which the linear technology is to be used are meticulously checked, assessed and included in advance...such as

  • Mass to be moved
  • Traversing speeds and accelerations
  • Drive positions
  • Travel (stroke)
  • Centre of gravity
  • Required precision such as positioning accuracy, running accuracies such as vertical or lateral runout
  • Environmental influences such as ambient temperature / dust environment
  • Available installation space in the machine

Contact our consultants directly to select your components individually according to your needs!

" Buying linear technology - These are the questions interested parties ask us when looking for suitable components

" What is linear technology?
" How does linear technology work exemplarily
" Where is linear technology used?
"In which industrial sectors does FUD have experience with linear technology projects?
"In which materials is linear technology available?
"What is the procedure when I buy from FUD Linear Technology?

» What is linear technology?

By using linear technology, it is possible for machines to carry out precise, guided longitudinal movements and, for example, to precisely position a mass to be moved. 

Just like bearings, which enable rotary movements of components, linear technology, is an essential part of industrial needs.

» How does linear technology work exemplary

A usually electric, pneumatic or hydraulic drive generates a longitudinal movement via a drive element. The load is picked up and the mass to be moved is guided by a wide variety of linear guides which, for example, are connected by a connecting plate to form a carriage or slide. The mass to be moved can then be mounted and moved on this.

The movement is carried out as energy-efficiently as possible by means of the elements that today are mostly mounted on rolling element bearings. The rolling element guide minimises the force required for the movement. This means that even large masses can be moved with little effort and with high precision.

Due to a closed design of complete systems, they are not susceptible to contamination and are provided with integrated long-term lubrication, low-maintenance or even maintenance-free.

» Where is linear technology used?

The main areas of application for linear technology are main axes in machine tools, machines of all kinds such as production and conveyor systems, packaging machines, woodworking machines, sawing systems, measuring machines, machines in dental and medical technology, etc.

In addition, linear technology is used in any application in automation. In other words, wherever linear movements are to be carried out.

» In which industrial sectors does FUD have experience with linear technology projects?

» What is the process when I buy from FUD Linear Technology?

Especially in such an individual and consultation-intensive field as linear technology, we always recommend that you first talk to us directly. Only in personal contact can you describe your needs, goals and general conditions in detail and directly ask our experts important questions about your project. This approach provides you with reliable information very quickly, enabling you to start your procurement or design project easily and reliably.

  • Get in touch with us by phone or e-mail - together we will discuss initial solutions for you
  • Send us your CAD data as well as your requirement definition
  • Internally, we then prepare a proposal for an ideal solution for you. Depending on your order, we carry out a service life calculation in addition to the design of the required components
  • Together we will discuss our proposed solution with you and provide any necessary design support
  • After you have decided on a solution, we agree on prices and delivery times

» What are the advantages of buying linear technology from FUD?

Our long-term partners involve us in their planning and projects at a very early stage for a variety of reasons. Already in the planning phase of a machine or plant, we can provide concrete design support with our many years of experience and give helpful hints that will save you a lot of time and money, as you will not encounter any unexpected problems when operating the machine or plant.

Of course, our guide rails are cut and assembled directly in our factory according to your wishes.

Thanks to a broad stock of goods in our central warehouse in Sprockhövel, we can quickly supply you with the components you need. It is even better for your procurement if you secure your requirements through call-off contracts and have FUD deliver to your production just in time, as required.
