Using RCV43 Series Guiding Cam Roller Bearings
In this application the customer needed to precisely move a scanning head around the perimeter of an object.
They knew the distance the head needed to be from the object for the best resolution, they knew the scan angle, and approximate weight of the scan head.
With that information we were able to quickly create a prototype solution for test and evaluation.
Below or to the right is a stop motion animation of the block moving alongthe curved rail.
Once this is mounted to machine structure and the covers are installed you will not see it. This is the case with many guiding systems.
They remain hidden deep within the machine or device.
Curved Rail Guided Systems
Since most of these are made to order we can usually adjust or alter the materials.
Aluminium, Carbon Steel, and Stainless Steel are most popular.
- 6061 Al for lightweight
- ASTM 1020 for heavy duty
- 17-4 Stainless for harsh or humid applications
These can also be finished with Special Plating or Coatings to enhance wear or durability.

Custom Design Capabilities
Prototypes: We reserve a portion of our shop for custom designing and machining to quickly create working models for you to evaluate.
Options: Stop pin, lock mechanism designs, or other recommendations are available upon request.
Multiple blocks can be mounted on the rail. Preload for each block can be adjusted on an individual basis.
