Power transmission is the transfer of energy from its place of generation to another location where it is applied to perform work using simple machines and linkages. We offer a wide range of linear motion components used to transmit, convert, and control motion in your industrial systems. Our linear sliding systems are available in a variety of manually and automatically driven types. Choose from crossed roller, ball bearing, track roller, sleeve bearing, dovetail, and ball/ACME screws. These sliding systems are sold as assembled units, as well as separate components that include carriages, rails, shafts, bushings, bearings, and pillow blocks. We also provide damping solutions to aid smooth deceleration and shock absorption. Suitable for constant-force and variable-force applications, options include shock absorbers, gas springs, and mechanical springs for compression, extension, and torsion motions.
Crossed Roller Slide Assemblies
Crossed roller slide assemblies are known for their high load capacities, low maintenance needs and accuracy. They excel in areas where ball bearing slide assemblies cannot.
Roller Rail Sets
These products are compact that can support and guide heavy loads with high accuracy, excellent repeatability and low friction.
Ball Bearing Slide Assemblies
Explore our breadth of modular assemblies with multiple size and travel options. These products effectively minimize problems related to impact and shock, over the lifetime of the bearing.
Ball Bearing Carriages
Ball bearing carriages allow for minor misalignements and offer a wide range of linear movements. The integrated rolling elements greatly reduce friction.
Ball Bearing Guide Rails
Ball bearing guide rails are easy to assemble and give a long service life even with heavy loads or over long distances.
Ball Bearing Pillow Blocks
Featuring closed and open bearing housing styles for ease of maintenance. Comes with and without a flange option to suit your application needs.
Ball Bearing Bushings
A great liason between the shaft and the carriage, these bushings can handle a moderate amount of load while moving at a fast rate.
Ball & Acme Screws
Ball screw products improve load capacity, speed, accuracy and overall life while acmw products improve noise cancellation, vertical applications and backlash.
Ball & Acme Nuts
Reid Supply offers ball and acme nuts for the reliable transfer of loads in a linear fashion. Available in square, round and flanged options.
Ball & Acme Flanges
Mount the screws, nuts and carriages to these flanges to create a turnkey solution for your linear motion applications. Available in different diameters and thread sizes.
Linear motion applications utilizing a ball or acme screw require a screw mount that is designed to withstand both radial and thrust loads generated by the application screw assembly.
Track Roller Assemblies
Track roller assemblies are known for their ability to move at high speeds, functionality in harsh environments, low noise levels and ease of assembly.
Track Roller Carriages
Featuring front and side mount options to cater to the various power transmission needs, including curved guides. The low profiles and miniature sizes make these carriages ideal for semi-conductor, laboratory, medical and packaging applications.
Track Roller Rails
These rails are precision machined for optimum accuracy and parallelism. Drilled through holes for easy installation. They accommodate high moment loads by mounting two parallel tracks in a wide spacing.
Track rollers, also known as cam followers, provide continuous and dependable motion. They are frequently used in food processing, farm and construction, machine tools, metal-working and packaging. Available in stud and yoke styles.
Guide bushings provide a simple method for mounting guide wheels in a precise and rigid fashion. Insert a fastener with a washer in the through hole to attach wheels to machinery. Concentric version is for mounting in a fixed location. The eccentric version has an offset hole to provide an adjustable position and allow wheel fit-up adjustment to parallel guide track.
Pneumatic Linear Slide Bearings
The T110 linear slide tables offer affordable linear and gripping solutions that match the price and performance expectations for machine builders and OEM markets. Smooth operation with crossed roller bearings. Available in varying stroke options.
Pneumatic Linear Slide Bearings Accessories
Includes shock absorbers, cables and adjustable flow controls. These accessories are quick and easy to install, which enhances productivity.
Sleeve Bearing Sliding Assemblies
This two-piece system is easy to assemble. The rail and carriage are made of 6063-T6 Aluminum. Rails are ceramic coated to resist corrosion, repel weld splatter and contaminants. Carraiges have T-slots for nuts and bolts.
Sleeve Bearing Carriages
These carriages are low profile and self lubricating and are excellent alternatives to linear ball bearing systems. They dampen vibrations and tolerate shock loads. Corrosion-resistant material. No metal-to-metal contact or rolling elements to trap contamination, skid or damage the rail. Operation is consistent, smooth and quiet. Used in packaging machines, medical eqipment, wash-down and harsh environments.
These come as one and two piece assemblies. The one piece integrated design eliminates assembly time but cannot be used with ball bearings. The two piece assembly comes with pre-drilled holes for easy installation.
High quality shafts that come as solid, pre-drilled and square styles. Multiple materials to choose from: Steel, Stainless Steel, Ceramic Coated Aluminum and much more.
Includes support rails and support blocks. The support rails are pre-drilled for easy mounting and are to be used with open style bearings. Support blocks are used for shaft end support.
Sleeve Bearing Pillow Blocks
Like the sleeve bearing carriages, these are self lubricating as well. The pillow blocks come in flange and non-flange options.
Sleeve bearings require no external lubrication. High load capacity allows for more compact design. Available in square and round shapes.
