LM76 (E. Longmeadow, MA) offers the Speed Guides™, two series of high-speed, compact linear guide systems. The Speed Demon OSG type and Speed Demon SG type linear guide systems are ideal for used in X, Y, or Z axes, and are designed for speeds up to 10 m/sec., accelerations to 50 m/sec.2, and loads up to 5600 N. The OSG systems are available in five rail and block sizes. Rails feature pre-drilled mounting holes, dual RC60 steel shafting in lengths up to 4 meters, and can be cut to size. Each OSG block features 4 dual-contact roller bearings with two bearings on eccentric mounts. Running straightness is ±0.02 mm regardless of system length. Integral felt wipers, high angular dual contact bearings, and corrosion resistant materials permit installation in a broad range of adverse environments. Shafting options include RC60, 440C, and chrome plating.

The SG systems are available in seven rail sizes and 19 block designs in seven sizes to fit a wide range of applications. Each rail has pre-drilled mounting holes, dual RC60 steel shafting in lengths up to four meters, and can be cut to size. SG blocks feature three to five dual-contact roller bearings with one to three bearings on eccentric mounts. Running straightness is ±0.015 mm regardless of system length.
