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.
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 Screws
Ball screw products improve load capacity, speed, accuracy and overall life while acmw products improve noise cancellation, vertical applications and backlash.
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 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 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.
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.
Gas Spring Accessories
Mount your gas springs with ease with our ball and eyelet type end fittings and mounting brackets. Various materials to choose from!
With springs being such an integral part of power transmission applications, Reid Supply has about every kind of spring: compression springs, die springs, solid springs, drawbar springs, extension springs, torsion springs, etc.
Mechanical Springs Accessories
Service and replace your springs on the go with our accessories that include music wire, snap buttons and spring winders.
Roller Rail Sets
These products are compact that can support and guide heavy loads with high accuracy, excellent repeatability and low friction.
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.
Shock Absorber Accessories
Mount your shock absorbers with convenience with our offering of mounting blocks, stop collars and locknuts. Multiple thread sizes to choose from!
Shock absorbers optimize machines in a reliable and effective way by decelerating loads quickly without recoil. Choose from adjustable and self-compensating force types.
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.
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 bearings require no external lubrication. High load capacity allows for more compact design. Available in square and round shapes.
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.
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.
