Ball Slides

Linear Ball & Crossed Roller Slides

Tusk Direct linear ball slides and linear crossed roller slides offer many design solutions for your linear motion application needs. These linear motion ball slides and crossed roller slides are available in eight different size profiles and several levels of precision ranging from a straight line accuracy of 0.0005” per inch of travel in our standard precision ball slides to 0.0000040” per inch of travel straight line accuracy in our high precision ball slides and high precision crossed roller slides. Both the linear ball slides and crossed roller slides are made available with inch or metric holes and metric hole locations. They are factory preloaded to provide low friction and are ready to be installed into your application right out of the box. Anti-creep technology is also available for our linear ball slides. These are designed for vertical applications involving higher speeds and cantilevered loads. For any special design considerations please contact us directly to discuss your linear motion needs. Our linear ball slides and crossed roller slides are manufactured in the United States and can be easily modified for your specific needs. Our products are also available in stainless steel and other materials can also be incorporated to meet your design requirements.

Other industry terms for linear ball slides often include ball slides, linear slides, linear motion slides, ball slide assemblies, roller tables, linear bearings, and linear ball slides. Additional terms for crossed roller slides include roller slides, cross roller bearings, linear crossed roller slides, crossed roller bearings, precision slides, high precision slides, and more generally as linear actuators, linear motion slides, or simply motion slides.
