Franke Linear Systems are based on the tried and tested Franke principle of 4-point contact. The patented system of Guided Rollers, moves the rollers and raceways smoothly and seamlessly. Franke aluminium linear systems are perfectly suited for applications where highly dynamic movements needs lightweight design. Due to the outstanding functionality of 4-point contact and modular construction allows us to individually modify each Linear Specialist Bearing system to deliver precisely what your application needs

Linear tables/linear modules with drive

Franke Linear Specialist tables and modules are linear systems with integrated drive mechanics. You can choose between spindle or toothed belt drive. In terms of shape, stroke length and design, we are gladly prepared to design linear systems according to your individual requirements

Aluminium pair of single rails with pair of roller shoes

When designed as a pair of individual rails, the guide width can be freely adjusted over the distance between the two rails. Franke supplies rails and roller shoes. The roller shoes are screwed directly to the continuing construction, therefore a cassette plate is not necessary. The shape of the rail profiles and the roller shoes can be adapted individually.

Aluminium Double Rail with Cassette

The double rail version consists of only two components: the profile rail and the cassette running on it. Profile and cassette shapes can be adapted individually. It is possible to stabilise the base by means of a wider profile.

The design principle of our Linear Systems makes them highly dynamic, quiet and maintenance-free.Wire raceways made of steel or non-corrosive steel, integrated into the aluminium body of a Franke guide rails ensure a high resilience and load capacity.

Modular structure for individual requirements

Linear Specialist Bearings can be modified individually to suit customer needs, thanks to their modular structure. You will always receive a solution that is ideally tailored to match your specific applications due to the use of various rail profiles and roller shoes, special cassettes, variable track widths or an integrated direct drive.
