Linear bearings, commonly known as linear slides, are types of bearings
designed to provide motion only in one direction. They are designed with a rolling element and a carriage. Then, they are mounted on round or square rails depending on your applications. The rolling element, whether it is a roller slide or balls, makes it possible to move loads with ease. Linear bearings are used in a wide range of applications ranging from the medical industry to industrial automation. With linear bearings, you have the option of using round or square rail guides. The most preferred option when using linear bearings is the square rails because they are more accurate and can handle higher capacity loads. But you also need to ensure they are properly installed and strictly observe parallelism. On the other hand, round rails are easy to install and you do not have to worry much about rail height and parallelism. Note that linear bearings work well when they run on hardened metal such as steel. Besides, they are more rigid compared to plain bearings.
