Precision motion control requires an extremely stable platform. Our linear v-block ball-bearing rails give greater stability than any other type of track.
Precision Bearing Rail
Designed to not bend or twist during any motion or acceleration/deceleration, the Precision Bearing Rail is the best track to use with the Milo. It’s inherent rigidity and straightness provides the ultimate stable platform for the Milo, allowing for high-accuracy at speed, even over uneven ground.
Available in 1.2, 1.8 and 3 metre sections.
Lightweight Bearing Rail
Delivering higher levels of performance than industry standard dolly rails, the Lightweight Bearing Rail is lighter and more portable than the Precision Bearing rail and can be taken apart if necessary for easy transportation.
Available in 1.6, 1.8 and 3 metre sections.
