Linear Motion Technologies
Linear Motion Technologies (Rodriguez Germany)
Linear guides are used in diverse industrial applications. Linear technology is used for example in loading and unloading processes, pick & place applications or for numerically controlled processes in machines and systems.
Linear motion processes vary widely and generally require individual solutions on the basis of linear guides and linear actuators. Rodriguez offers a broad range of linear guides, profiled rail guides and linear actuators in many different sizes and types. In addition to individual custom solutions, we also develop complete linear systems with different drive variants on the basis of our linear guides.
MAC offers the right linear guide version and the compatible accessories for virtually every task that involves motion – also as a custom-tailored solution from our in-house production on request. Our customers benefit from optimally compatible linear technology components from a single source and the resulting reliability, precision and functionality. Because the whole can only be as good as the sum of its parts.

A roller screw, also known as a planetary roller screw or satellite roller screw, is a low-friction precision screw-type actuator, a mechanical device for converting rotational motion to linear motion, or vice versa. Planetary roller screws are used as the actuating mechanism in many electro-mechanical linear actuators. Due to its complexity the roller screw is a relatively expensive actuator (as much as an order of magnitude more expensive than ball screws), but may be suitable for high-precision, high-speed, heavy-load, long-life and heavy-use applications.
Roller screw mechanisms are commonly incorporated into motion/positioning systems in a variety of industries such as manufacturing and aerospace.
