The RB series of roller guides from NSK, Franklin, IN, provides a 26% reduction in overall height compared with NSK’s conventional RA series roller guides. This facilitates downscaling of equipment and lowering the center of gravity of precision/positioning tables.

High capacity and high rigidity have been achieved by optimizing the rolling contact conditions, which is a result of configuring the internal dimensions so as to accommodate slider deformation. The RB series comes in five preloaded sizes ranging from RB30 to RB65. 23 slide model types are available.
