Unlike typical bearings that enable circular motion, linear bearings promote movement in a straight line. This is generally accomplished with the use of ball or roller bearings loaded onto a track that supports a surface which can be moved back and forth, such as a table. A common application for linear bearings is in a filing cabinet where it permits the drawers to be opened and closed with ease. 

We supply a wide assortment of linear roller & ball bearings, such as ball bushings, flanged ball slides, pillow block slides, guideway slides, shaft supports, and linear shafts.
