Guiding Innovation Since 1898


From light duty to large, high speed, and difficult positions, we can design a totally new guiding system or a simple retrofit to fit your existing application. Using proven guiding technology, our common sense, durable design combines ease of motion and long-term reliability.

We can also completely rebuild and overhaul a “vintage” guide – even if it’s 100 years old – and keep it running smoothly for many more decades.
