Round Shaft Linear Motion Systems
We supply a large range of components which can be used for assembling a linear motion system using hardened round shaft for a variety of configurations. Some examples are shown in the image above.
Our ball bushings range includes open and closed type bushings, tandem length versions and both square and circular flanged ball bushings. Many types are also available in stainless steel. Other types available include compact and super ball bushings- please see our website to view the complete range.
We supply the hardened & ground shaft (Cf53) and stainless shaft (X90CrMoV18) that these ball bushings should be run on. We can drill and tap the shafts, if required.
The shafts can be supported on end supports or fully supported on our rail supports. These components are all available in aluminium. Our end supports are also available in cast iron (WB55) and stainless steel (WB59) as well as aluminium (WB56 or WB57).
We supply both aluminium and cast iron housings, either as standard or tandem length versions. These are supplied with our standard ball bushings but can also be supplied with our stainless steel ball bushings (KB50 or KB53).
And we also offer both an open type complete system and closed type complete system which comprise of two shafts, one housing and two end supports. There are two different end supports available depending on whether they will be fixed down (with the carriage sliding) or if the housing will be fixed down. These systems can be supplied with stainless shafts and stainless bushings.

We have over 25 years experience of making and supplying fork truck mast bearings and carriage bearings. We hold extensive stocks for all the popular makes of fork trucks, including Linde, Nissan, Toyota, Clark, Komatsu etc. We also supply the Chain Roller bearings which carry the mast chain on fork trucks.
If required, we can make specials or we can modify bearings. And we can often solve problems for users of older machines when parts are no longer available.
We can identify bearings from dimensions alone. Please use our ‘drawing index’ to identify the style of your bearing or email photos along with the dimensions. Tell us the inner diameter, outer diameter and width (in millimetres). More information is available on our ‘guide to identification‘ webpage.
Or you can use our online mast bearing database to search for the correct bearing.
So please talk to us about any mast bearing, carriage bearing or chain guide roller that you require.
