Roller guides

Precise long runners

Precise long runners

If linear movements are to be precise, low-noise and dynamic, then roller guides are indispensable. For special applications, Ganter has now transferred its modular system to stainless steel.

Roller guide is not roller guide – even if the first glance suggests it. A second look reveals the differences, which are more fundamental than detailed. That's why Ganter offers several model series.

A new addition is the stainless steel version in the two most important track heights, 30 and 45 millimeters. These rails are made up of individual components that are precisely matched to one another: the rails GN 2492, the matching roller carriages GN 2494 and the separately available scrapers made of TPU and the individual rollers with three different bore types. The running rail, which is produced using the roller rolling process, is extremely stable and can be installed using the usual drilling pattern - and that up to a rail length of 2480 millimeters.

The compact roller runners are securely guided in the C-shaped rail, and the vertical play can be adjusted via the middle roller, as is usual with Ganter. The ball bearings of the rollers are sealed, lubricated for life and - recognizable by the blue seals - FDA-compliant. This means that these track roller guides can be used both in corrosive environments and where strict hygiene regulations must be observed.

The roller guides of the GN 2422 series can be set up just as individually. The C-shaped rails GN 2422 are available in four heights and are made of distortion-free, galvanised, hardened and ground steel. The matching roller runners GN 2424 are available in three versions, each with an adjustable center roller, whereby all rollers and the scrapers are available individually. Mounted on the roller runners, the wipers clear dirt from the rails with every movement and thus maintain smooth running.

In addition to these roller guides designed for high loads, Ganter also has simpler variants in its portfolio that are sufficient for standard applications. GN 1490 is offered in two heights as a complete set of rail and runner - in galvanized steel or in stainless steel. Thanks to the slightly oversized rollers, the carriages run smoothly, smoothly and precisely in the C-profiles. The permanently lubricated and dustproof sealed bearings also contribute to this.

With these three series, Ganter offers suitable solutions for all quality and cost requirements.
