Linear motion and actuation technologies

Linear motion

Linear motion range

Linear motion products from SKF combine the knowledge and efforts of linear drive systems (ball and roller screws) and linear guides and tables.

Linear drive systems typically use screws to transfer rotary into linear movements. This requirement is well achieved by our high efficiency driving products: miniature and large rolled ball screws, ground ball screws as well as different variations of roller screws.

The second part of linear motion are linear guides and tables. The key know-how here is to find the most suitable guiding solution providing the needed accuracy, stiffness and positioning at the appropriate cost. To provide the best fit for your guiding needs, our comprehensive range includes linear ball bearings, profile rail guides, precision rail guides and linear tables and slides.
