MINI-X = Miniature guideways, MINIRAIL carriages with long-term lubrication LUBE-S, micro frictionless tables and integrated distance measuring system

Miniature guideways are compact and precise for maximum productivity. Maintenance free guideways - lubricant reservoir directly integrated into MINIRAIL carriages.

The miniature guideways MINIRAIL, the micro frictionless tables MINISLIDE and the integrated distance measuring systems MINISCALE PLUS, which have a major impact thanks to their degree of precision, robustness and versatility, were developed for high speeds and accelerations in the work process.


This new innovative, as well as patented ball deflection guarantees perfect, fine running behaviour for speeds up to 3 m/s and accelerations up to 250 m/s2.

Maintenance free guideways - lubricant reservoir directly integrated into MINIRAIL carriages

MINIRAIL represents the latest generation of miniature guideways for sophisticated applications. They are extremely robust. Their smooth running precision and reliability are demonstrated in every application.

The design, material selection and surface finish of the recirculation element and ball entry zone, guarantee low pulsation and therefore a smooth ride.

The range includes eight rail widths which can be combined with up to four carriage sizes.

Short carriage version (Order code MNNS). The best choice for restricted installation spaces.

Customer benefits of the short carriage:

  • The compact, short carriage is ideally suited to small installation spaces
  • Consistently high level of accuracy
  • Long lifetime
