      • Profiled guideway

          • Type MR

          • MONORAIL MR Profiled linear roller guideways
            The very precise MONORAIL profiled guide ways are used worldwide in many machine tool applications. A widespread product program is covering the requirements from small manipulators till heavy chipping processes.

            MONORAIL MR
            High rigidity, great dynamic and static load carrying capacity, outstanding running smoothness and the total enclosure of the carriage are the main features of the MONORAIL guideway. These properties result in higher machining rates while enhancing geometrical accuracy and surface quality of the machined workpieces. Our highly rigid MONORAIL provides improved vibration behavior, smaller vibration amplitudes and thus extends tool life.

            SCHNEEBERGER has systematically applied its many years of experience in the design, production and use of roller-type anti-friction guideways in the development of the MONORAIL. Consequently the MONORAIL MR is a cost-effective anti-friction guideway which meets the challenge presented by modern machine design.
          • Type BM

          • MONORAIL BM Profiled linear ball guides
            The very precise MONORAIL profiled guide ways are used worldwide in many machine tool applications. A widespread product program is covering the requirements from small manipulators till heavy chipping processes.

            MONORAIL BM
            SCHNEEBERGER's MONORAIL BM linear ball guides features excellent dynamic properties and many commercial benefits. Designed with a small number of cleverly arranged components, it provides for excellent running properties due to the small number of transitions in the ball tracks, which lead to very quiet running, low pulsation and low friction as well as high travel speeds. The use of a trapezoidal rail section results in an extremely rigid guideway coupled with a substantial reduction in servicing time as additional wipers can be changed without dismantling the carriage. Complete sealing of the carriage guarantees maximum reliability coupled with a long service life. This robust and economical guideway rounds off SCHNEEBERGER's range of products for industrial applications with high demands on speed, reliability and consistant running properties.

They consist of only four components; the lower and the upper part made of stainless steel, the brass cage and the stainless steel rolling elements. The U-shaped cage joins the two guideways together. As a result, the susceptibility to cage drift is essentially eliminated. NDN micro frictionless tables, preloaded in assembly to eliminate play, exhibit extremely low push force. NDN products fulfill high speed requirements with great precision and long service life.

                                • Mineral casting

                                • SCHNEEBERGER mineral castings are manufactured by specialist staff at our production facility in Cheb. The entire process from the design phase and the actual casting process, through to final finishing is subject to rigorous quality procedures. This guarantees that complex machine structures and sub-assemblies with integrated guideways are produced to the specified dimensions and to the highest quality.

                                  SCHNEEBERGER mineral casting is not only an alternative to conventional cast-iron or steel constructions, but in many instances it is by far the superior technology. This is demonstrated also by its economical advantages: SCHNEEBERGER mineral casting components have a short delivery time and are up to 30% cheaper. Our longstanding experience in mineral casting and its diversity of application possibilities makes us a strong partner for machine and plant builders. Our customer and application support starts at the construction phase because, thanks to FEM (Finite Element Method), we are able to simulate the effects of dynamic and static loads without the need for costly prototypes. In this way we can verify the desired characteristics of the cast components and overall thermal behaviour.
