Piston and rod guide elements absorb lateral forces and prevent metallic contract between the moving components. The additional element separates the functions and a more cost-effect construction is possible compared to previously used metallic guides. We supply guide Rings with L-, T-, U-shape or rectangle in different materials!
The standard profiles shown below are guide rings that represent the state of the art. We manufacture these standard guide rings in-house for all required groove dimensions in a variety of materials. In addition to turned and injection moulded guide rings we also supply many dimensions by the running metre or ready cut. Depending on the quantity, the material and your requirements, we will offer guide elements in the appropriate manufacturing process – everything from one source!
Profiles according to customer preferences
If you have conditions which cannot be optimally solved with a standard profile, we can also manufacture an ideal guide element according to customers’ drawings or develop one. In this field we are a development partner and are perfectly equipped to design the ideal product for you.
