Linear Motion

Linear motion systems and technology from Bosch Rexroth and Accuride are available through Tectra Automation as stand-alone modular componentry or as complete linear systems.
Our linear motion products are economical, precise and safe and help move machines and systems of any size. Our linear motion systems provide high load and torque capacities up to 2 000 kN: equivalent to the weight of 200 cars!
Bosch Rexroth’s linear motion systems are renowned to provide robust yet versatile performance in any application – from light-duty machining to heavy-duty materials handling. We also offer Accuride industrial slides in our extensive linear motion offering!

Our range of linear motion products, systems and technologies include:

Profile Rail Systems Screw assemblies

Profiled Rail Systems:

We offer a comprehensive range of profiled rail system products that combine runner blocks and guide rails in a number of ways.

Screw assemblies:

Our screw assemblies convert rotary motions into linear motions.


Ball Screw Assemblies


Ball Rail Systems BSHP: high load capacities in all 4 main loading directions & high dynamic ratings up to 10 m/sec

Roller Rail Systems: high torque capacity for heavy machinery. 2 000 kN (static load)

Cam Roller Guides: for high speeds, equipped with scraper and lubrication units at both ends, with large-capacity oil reservoir

Integrated measuring systems: for monitoring of precision work

  • Standard Range: 6 to 80 mm Ø
  • Screw Assembly with Front Lubrication Unit: 20, 25, 32 and 40 Ø

Planetary Screw Assemblies

  • High load-bearing capacity and stiffness owing to numerous, large contact surfaces
  • Low-noise operation thanks to guided planets
  • Small installation space due to increased power density
  • Reduced lubricant consumption and good environmental protection thanks to effective seals
Multi Axis Systems

Multi Axis Systems:

Our EasyHandling multi axis systems combine linear motor to an integrated system for long distance travel at high speeds and accelerations.

Standardised, configurable linear motion products from individual components to complete handling systems that result in:

Ball Transfer Units & Tolerance Rings:

Ball transfer units enable unit loads to easily be pushed, turned and steered in conveyor and feed systems, machining units and packaging lines.

Tolerance rings made of hard, embossed spring band steel allow components to be connected quickly and cost-effectively.

  • Planning times up to 70% faster
  • Reduced installation times by 60%
  • Start-up times cut by 90%
  • Secure fixing of machine components
  • Replace positive-locking feather-key, pin, spline or screw-in connections
Industrial Slides Electromechanical Cylinders

Industrial Slides:

Accuride heavy-duty, medium-duty, light-duty and recirculating linear motion slides from loads of 20 kilograms to 300 kg.

Electromechanical Cylinders:

These compact cylinders are powerful alternative to pneumatic cylinders and are extremely energy efficient.

  • Stainless steel or corrosion resistant coating for medical/chemical use
  • Open to the complete length of the slide
  • Disconnect function enables easy access for installation, repairs and cleaning
  • Integrated ball screw drive ensures exact positioning and powerful thrust capability
  • Available in 6 sizes from 32 to 100 mm
  • Available in any stroke length from 100 up to 1 500 mm

Additional features of our linear motion systems:

  • Linear motion products are precision-engineered from robust steel or aluminium
  • Stainless steel linear motion configurations available for food, semi-conductor and medical technology applications
  • Corrosion, temperature and chemical resistant linear motion products for the most demanding applications
  • Precise, ready-to-install linear motion systems that combine high performance with compact dimensions
  • Zero-backlash nut linear motion system allows for increased positioning accuracy and repeatability
  • Several different motor/controller combinations and attachments allow each customer to achieve the most cost effective linear motion solution for their unique application.
