Precision Linear Shafting
Lintech’s Linear Precision Shafting Products:
Lintech provides precsion 60 case hardened Class L, Class S, and Class N linear shafting in inch diameters from 0.25 to 2.0 inches. Lintech cuts to any length desired, up to the max length of any given shaft diamer. These precision ground 1060 steel shafts are manufactured to 0.001/0.002 in/ft. They are then finely polished in order to provide a long lasting round rail positioning system when used with either their super linear ball bushing bearings or aluminum pillow blocks.
Precision Linear Shafting Configurations:
The SL-PD Series is a standard pre-drilled Class L shaft with a set hole pattern location and hole bolt size. However, any of Lintech shafts can be machined to any customer requirements such as reduced end diameters, end stops, coaxial holes, radial holes, butt joints, dowel joints or to any customer drawing. Both aluminum and steel end support blocks and rail supports are available. Metric shaft diameters are also available in cut to length and machined as required component. These metric shafts operate with both the Asian and European Lintech metric super ball bushing linear bearings. Lintech is able to provide these precision linear shafts for one-off cutomer applications, as well as OEM high volume requirements with multiple shaft lengths and diameters.
Round Rail Linear Ball Bushing Bearings
Lintech manufactures various Linear Ball Bushing Inch versions:
The closed LBC and the open LBO are super linear ball bushing, inch series self-aligning bearings. These ball bushing versions are suited for the Lintech SL series class L shafting. These products are utilized together to form a precision linear positioning system that can handle large load requirements. These products will also perform well in applications where there is slight mis-alignment between a pair of shafts. Sometimes, due to other limitations, it is very difficult to maintain a high degree of parallelism between shafts and ball bushings with SL shafting can help to prevent the linear system from binding. The closed LBCA and the open LBOA are all steel plain A type linear bearings that work with Lintech SS series Class S precision shafting to form a positioning system that can operate in a high temperature environment.
Metric Ball Bushing Configurations:
When considering metric ball bushings, there are two standards available. There are Asian or European standards which maintain slightly different tolerances. The closed LBCM and the open LBOM are Asian type self-aligning ball bushings that work with Lintechâ€™s SM metric precision shafting to form a positioning system where Asian metric components are required for the system. The closed LBCME and the open LBOME are European type super linear ball bushings that will also work with Lintech SM metric precision shafting to form a positioning system where European metric components are required for the system.

Precision Round Rail Shaft Assemblies
Lintech’s Shaft Assembly Products:
Lintech provides both single and dual, precision round rail steel shaft assemblies. These shaft assemblies have a precision machined 6061-T6 aluminum black anodized base that runs the entire length of the shaft which not only supports the user load as it moves along the shaft, but the support also has pre-drilled base mounting holes that allow for easy customer mounting to a machineâ€™s frame. The shaft straightness specification is 0.001/0.002 in/ft. cumulative. Shaft diameters are available from 0.500 to 2.0 inches in 6 to 192 inch standard lengths. Some standard sizes can be shipped in less than 2 days, while any length can be provided as a custom in as little as 1 week. These shaft assemblies work well with Lintech pillow blocks.
Single and Dual Shaft Assembly Configurations:
The SA series is ideal for those applications requiring an outrigger bearing assembly to help support the load weight in a positioning application. Using a round rail linear bearing assembly is much easier to align, and keep aligned, than a square rail linear guide system would be. The TRSA series is an engineered, pre-aligned, dual precision shaft assembly system that allows the user to quickly install a drive system of their choice to move a required load when used with our TRCA carriage assemblies. End stops, 440 C stainless steel shafts, chrome plated shafts, and metric diameters are all available as options. Also, CAD models can be downloaded from the Lintech website in any format desired.

Pillow Block Linear Bearings
Lintech’s Pillow Block Products:
Lintech manufactures various round rail ball bushing pillow block linear bearings in both open and closed versions. These linear pillow blocks are available with just one super bushing or two super bushings per each aluminum block, and are suited for the Lintech SL series class L shafting or the Lintech SA and TRSA shaft assemblies.
Linear Bearing Configurations:
The closed SLBC, DLBC and the open SLBO, DLBO are super linear ball bushing, inch series self-aligning pillow blocks. When these products are utilized together, they form a precision linear positioning system that can handle large load requirements, move with low torque/drag, and will also perform well in applications where there is slight mis-alignment between a pair of shafts or shaft assemblies. Thus, using a round rail linear bearing system can save valuable machine set up or manufacturing time. The open SLBO and the DLBO pillow blocks are designed for use with a shaft that is supported underneath its entire length of travel. The closed SLBC and the DLBC pillow block bearings are designed for use when the associated linear shaft is supported at each end with some shaft end supports. Customers can either make their own pillow block bearing assembly or use the Lintech TRCA carriage assembly that has one or two pillow blocks per aluminum plate.
Ball Screw Assemblies:
Lintech’s Ball Screw Assembly Products:
Lintech has 3 different classes of ball screw assemblies available to purchase. Each ball screw actuator is available in whatever length the user requires in increments of 0.001 inches up to the maximum length of a given screw length. The ball screw assembly has 5 different end support options to pick from, Simple : Simple, Fixed(LT) : Simple, Fixed(HT) : Simple, Rigid : Simple, and Rigid : Rigid. These all steel black oxide finish end supports provide a very rigid and solid screw support no matter what length of ball screw used. Each ball screw series has either a preloaded or non-preloaded nut assembly available as an option.
Ball Screw Configurations:
The rolled ball screw assemblies have a lead error of 0.003 inches / foot and a unidirectional repeatability of 0.0002 inches. The precision rolled ball screw series has a lead error of 0.002 inches / foot and a unidirectional repeatability of 0.0002 inches. The precision ground ball screw series has a lead error of 0.0005 inches / foot and a unidirectional repeatability of 0.0001 inches. Each ball screw assembly has a round flange, vertical bracket, or L bracket nut flange to choose from in either English or Metric mounts. Lintech also provides various motor adapter brackets, coupling options, rotary encoders, and brake options.
