Back to FAQ
Slide bearings facilitate precise linear motion and accommodate structural expansion.
The slide bearing assembly consists of structural pads, a PTFE sliding surface (or other low-friction material) and slide bearing plates. Subtypes of slide bearings include linear ball bearings and linear roller bearings. Slide bearings may also be referred to as linear bearings, guide bearings, or linear slide bearings.
They may be used in applications such as construction (expansion supports for bridges) and precision tooling.
