Curved Linear Rail Systems Products

New Product!  We now offer straight, 90 degree turn, and 180 degree turn sections as standard off-the-shelf items for those who wish to build their own systems.  For OEM applications we will make "custom" rail units.  Click on the picture below to go directly to our online catalog.
 Curved Rail Series
Our curved rail systems can be made to accomondate a variety of needs.  Each photo on this page is from an actual project.

Long lengths of guide rails can be machined to match your motion profile requirement.  One or more slider blocks can be mounted on the rail.  Doors, linkages, tools, or other items can be attached to the blocks for friction free movement along the rail.

TO BEGIN A PROJECT WE NEED AT LEAST: 

Below is an example of a block at various positions along the rail.
 
 

1)  Sketch or CAD model of the desired motion path
2)  Payload weight and its location relative to the rail
3)  Speed of motion
4)  Duty cycle or frequency of movement
5)  Intended orientation of the track and carriage

 
To the right is an example of a special or custom machined rail system where the turns are very tight.  Rails are machined to accomondate multiple bends or radi in the desited travel path.

To the right is an example of our special or custom machined rail system.  It can be made to almost any configuration.  Rails are machined to accomondate multiple bends or radi in the desited travel path. 

To get started all we require is sketch of your desired travel path. 

Multiple blocks can be independently moved or connected such that they move in unison with each other.  Belt drive systems can be used to automate movement.

 

Curved and Straight rail segments can be connected to form a continuous loop or a single ending track if desired.

Areas where Curved Rail Systems can typically be found:

  • Packaging Machines
  • Medical Instruments
  • Medical Lab Automation Equipment
  • Industrial Door Safety Systems
