Custom Linear Bearings

Super precision linear bearing solutions that offer high rigidity energy saving solutions for engineers.

The purpose of linear motion bearings is to move products along a straight or curved line. With multiple options, including motion guides, linear bushings, ball splines, and cross roller guides, and each option offering varying degrees of carrying capacity, accuracy, and friction reduction, each requirement can be met no matter how challenging the application.
Linear motion bearings are often required by designers in challenging specialist industry sectors, however, due to their construction and availability through long factory production lead times, they are often difficult to adapt to demanding applications. At Carter, we place our focus on offering immediate solutions that will always meet and exceed our customer’s expectations, no matter the challenge. Some difficult applications Carter has been able to provide help with include clean rooms, ultra-high vacuum environments, extreme temperatures, and aerospace and space applications.
