MONORAIL - the best solution from simple handling tasks to difficult machining tasks

High rigidity, large dynamic and static load carrying capacity, and high-running smoothness of the completely sealed carriage are the outstanding features of the MONORAIL BM and MR. Both profiled linear guideways can also be equipped with an integrated distance measuring system.

Features and customer benefits
The MONORAIL MR and BM profiled linear guideways from SCHNEEBERGER impress with their high rigidity, large dynamic and static load carrying capacity and high-running smoothness of the completely sealed carriage. These features make the MONORAIL MR ideal for use in high-performance machine tools or for applications where high travel speeds are required. For customers, the MONORAIL means a frictionless guideway that meets the economic requirements of a modern machine, system and equipment company.

MONORAIL MR "4S"
SCHNEEBERGER also makes continuous advancements in its profiled linear guideways based on its experience in applications. The following improvements have been most recently implemented in the MONORAIL MR under the designation 4S:

  • Serviceability: compatible with the previous generation, easy replacement of the cross wiper.
  • Supply of lubricant: use-driven lubricant distribution, pressure-tight lubrication channels, and lubrication in idle.
  • Shock resistance: carriage body optimized for rigidity.
  • Sturdiness: rugged stainless steel front plate with secure attachment, sustained good running properties and optimized double-lip cross wiper.

Minimum maintenance, long service life
This has further improved the already efficient sealing. This more effectively prevents the penetration of dirt. This also results in a further reduction in lubricant losses. This means a greater increase in service life with minimal maintenance, optimally adapted to the installation location. And development continues. SCHNEEBERGER will continue to research possibilities for improvements long into the future.

Integrated distance measuring system
Exact linear motion requires extremely accurate distance measurement. SCHNEEBERGER offers cost-effective solutions with AMS, its integrated distance measuring systems for a variety of applications. Integrated distance measurement also reduces the cost of installation and construction. In addition, the repeat accuracy of the axis increases, which improves the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the entire system on a sustained basis.
