PRG with ball assemblies
LWRB series

Precision rail guide LWRB
LWRB precision rail guides with ball assemblies (fig. 1) can be used where loads are light and/or low friction is required. This series is the smallest within our product range. LWJK ball assemblies, which are used together with LWRB rails, are provided with a ball-retaining plastic cage. Additionally SKF offers the precision rail guide LWRB with anti-creeping system ACSM (fig. 2) that helps to keep the ball assembly in the intended position.
For the whole product range, technical data or mounting instructions, please have a look to the Precision rail guide catalogue.
