Hydrostatic guideways


  • Replaceable compact guideways
  • Linear roll guideways
  • Theoretically unlimited lifetime
  • Ideal for oscillation movements
  • No ball redirection from rolling elements
  • No friction by low motion, no stick-slip effect
  • Maximum positioning accuracy, no backlash
  • High damping by oil-filled lubrication gap
  • No vibrations from rolling elements
  • Maximum possible damping of vibrations from machining process
  • High security against collisions
  • Wear-free, no metallic contact
  • Speeds up to 50 m/s
  • Thermal stable, direct heat dissipation through lubrication oil
  • High machining accuracy and repeatability

Typical applications

  • Guideways with and without wrap-around
  • Guideway-units with linear motors
  • Compact guideways, replaceable with linear roll guideways
  • Round guideways, simultaneous linearand rotary movements
  • V-Flat guides
  • Guide rails
  • Guide plates
