The decisive difference between an ordinary ball bearing and a Franke wire race bearing is in the raceways. In a wire race bearing, the rolling elements do not roll on solid housing rings, but on high performance wires. The flexibility of this principle makes it possible to design more freely and simply, in order to develop better products.
Franke linear systems transfer the ingenious principle of the wire-race bearing to linear movements. Inserted raceways ensure the load capacity on all sides. The rest of the construction can therefore be made of lightweight aluminum. Large guided rollers ensure smooth running - maintenance-free over the entire service life. Thanks to their modular design, Franke linear systems can be individually adapted to requirements.
