Ball Type Linear Motion Rolling Guides

Accurate guiding elements for smooth and repeatable linear motion

IKO designs and manufactures a wide range of ball type guides to achieve precise linear motion across a diverse range of industries, from semiconductor manufacturing to machine tools. C-Lube models feature built-in lubricating elements to provide long lasting, maintenance-free operation guaranteed to perform for 20,000 km or 5 years. IKO ball type guides focus on high rigidity for complex loads, quiet operation and other design features to meet specific application requirements.

C-Lube Linear Way

C-Lube Linear Way ML


Our C-Lube Linear Way ML lightweight miniature guides feature built-in lubrication. The C-lube unit doesn’t contact the track rail, enabling smooth motion without increasing rolling resistance.

  • Components are made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. This makes them suitable for applications that don't use rust-preventive oil such as clean rooms.
  • Slide units incorporate ball-retaining bands that prevent the loss of balls when removing them from the rails.
  • Both standard and wide versions are available, with slide unit lengths ranging from short to extra-long.

C-Lube Linear Way MLV


Our C-Lube Linear Way MLV miniature guides are designed for applications that require smooth, maintenance-free linear motion at an economical price.

  • Built-in lubrication saves time and money on maintenance.
  • Corrosion-resistant stainless steel components make them suitable for clean rooms and other demanding environments.
  • Slide units feature ball-retaining bands to prevent ball loss when removing slide units from rails.

C-Lube Linear MV


Our C-Lube Linear Way MV guides offer the highest downward load capacity of all the ball type guides.

  • Low profile, light weight design with a large load capacity and high rigidity.
  • Built-in lubrication means long-term maintenance-free operation.
  • Slide units incorporate ball-retaining bands that prevent the loss of balls when removing them from the rails.

C-Lube Linear Way ME


Our C-Lube Linear Way ME compact guides feature built-in lubrication for maintenance-free operation.

  • External dimensions of C-Lube ME guides are the same as standard Linear Way LWE guides, making these units interchangeable without adjusting stroke length.
  • The C-Lube unit does not contact the track rail, enabling smooth motion without increasing frictional resistance.
  • Multiple slide unit shapes, lengths and sizes give you the ability to choose the configuration that best suits your specific application.

C-Lube Linear Way MH


Our C-Lube Linear Way MH guides offer high rigidity and built-in lubrication for maintenance-free operation.  Slide units and track rails may be mixed and matched to achieve specific accuracy classes and high preloads as needed.

  • Multiple slide unit shapes, lengths and sizes are available in several accuracy grades and preloads, allowing you to choose the best configuration for your application.
  • The external dimensions of the MH guides are the same as the LWH guides so that slide units can be easily swapped out.
  • Optional design choices include an ultra-seal specification for dust protection, stainless steel models for demanding environments and extra high rigidity long slide units.

C-Lube Linear Way MUL


Our C-Lube Linear Way MUL guide features a U-shaped track and built-in lubrication for maintenance-free operation. External dimensions match the standard Linear Way LWU units, making these units interchangeable without adjusting stroke length.

  • Corrosion-resistant stainless steel components make them suitable for harsh environments and clean rooms.
  • Slide units incorporate ball-retaining bands that prevent the loss of balls when removing them from the rails.
  • U-shaped rails are rigid and can be used as structural components, either in a cantilever position or supported at both ends.
