Flat Roller Cage / FT/FTW series
Flat Roller Cage is a precision linear motion rolling guide consisting of a high accuracy cage and very precise rollers and features very low sectional height. In this series, both single row type and double row type with a 90˚ angle are available. The cage material is steel or synthetic resin.Smooth operation – As the cage precisely guides the rollers, the frictional resistance is very low without stick-slip, and stable linear motion is obtained.Large load rating – Needle rollers are assembled in a cage with a small pitch distance, so load ratings are large.Adaptability to conventional plain guide ways – Single row and double row types are standardized and can be easily used to modify the conventional plain guide ways of machine tools, etc. into rolling guide type without large-scale redesign of the bed.Low noise – Cages made of synthetic resin are also available. This type is most suitable for applications where low noise is required.Easy handling – The rollers are retained in a cage securely, allowing easy handling and assembly.
