This addition to the Mechantronics Enabled initiative is designed to provide smooth, accurate, and repeatable linear motion in tight spaces. Boasting a 23 mm standard height, and with the flexibility to be configured to adapt to the demands of a given application, the new linear guide system is an ideal fit for applications such as lab automation, medical, automated delivery systems, dispensing robotics, and electronic board manufacturing.
