Schatz Double V Guide Wheel System Features and Benefits

Schatz provides the following linear slide components: linear bearings with a double v profile, linear track with a matching profile, and linear bushings for proper mounting of the bearings. These components are used in a variety of applications including x-y tables.


Maintenance-free operation

  • Bearings are “greased for life”
  • Track surfaces hardened for long wear life
  • High-precision bearings allow for smooth and quiet operation

Ideal for harsh environments

  • Rolling elements are enclosed and safeguarded from contamination
    (Other linear bearing systems allow easier entrance of contamination into the rolling element raceway interface resulting in accelerated wear.)
  • Stainless steel options for resistance to corrosion
  • Schatz’s special two-piece seal is highly resistant to contamination
  • Lubricant is contained in bearing cavity ensuring long lubrication life

Flexibility in configuration

Components allow for numerous mounting arrangements:

  • Bearings can be mounted vertically or horizontally
  • Bearings can be used in linear or rotary systems

Custom designs can be manufactured to meet your specific needs
