Linear Slides, Ball Slides, and Crossed Roller Slides

Linear Slides (Ball & Crossed Roller)

Del-Tron’s linear ball slides and linear crossed roller slides offer engineers and designers the flexibility to choose the right linear slide technology for their application. Our ball slides and crossed roller slides offer several levels of precision ranging from a straight line accuracy of 0.0005” per inch of travel in our standard precision ball slides to 0.0000040” per inch of travel straight line accuracy in our high precision ball slides and crossed roller slides. Available with inch or metric holes and hole locations these factory preloaded, low friction, light weight linear slides are ready for installation right out of the box. For vertical applications involving higher speeds and cantilevered loads please consider our Anti-Creep linear ball slides. These linear slides contain a one piece ball retainer to maintain the position of the ball bearing retainer.

For your convenience solid model drawings for our entire product line are available by clicking on our Part Search.
