Miniature linear slides MSR for highest dynamics and precision

News update: 30-11-2020

NEW! Miniature Slide MSR 3, high precision in miniature size

With a height of only 3.2 mm and a width of 5.5 mm, the new size offers maximum space savings. Especially with limited installation space, the new MSR 3 provides the advantages of cross roller bearings together with an anti-cage creep solution in the smallest package available.

The MSR 3 offers high stiffness, high durability and high precision in very tight installation spaces. The smallest size comes in four different lengths: 8, 15, 20 and 25 mm and covers stroke lengths from 5 - 20 mm.

The miniature linear slide Serie MSR  is the smallest product line with anti-cage creep technology and cross roller cage available in the industry. There are 7 sizes in different lengths and strokes to choose from.

This product line has been developed due to the increasing demand for compact sliding tables that must be able to move quickly with high accuracy and low friction. The linear slides are lubricated at the factory.


  • Compact design;

  • Cross roller cage;

  • Smooth and play-free;

  • 100% stainless steel;

  • Anti-cage creep technology.

High loads and accelerations capabilities

All parts are manufactured out of corrosion-resistant steel, for the bearings high-precision cylindrical rollers are used. These rollers are arranged in a crisscross pattern; meaning that each roller is oriented at a 90 degrees angle relative to the one next to it, and being kept in a stainless steel cage.

The design enables the miniature slide to support loads and moments from all directions and it also contributes to high stiffness. The max. acceleration is determined at 200 m/s2 and max. load capacity is 7.819 N.

Integrated Anti-Cage Creep mechanism ACCI

All sizes of the MSR slides are featured with an advanced and robust anti-cage creep mechanism (cage control). It will retain the roller cage in position under the most demanding conditions, like high accelerations and vertical mounting orientation. ACCI guarantees that the maximum stroke always can be achieved, even under the harshest environments.

Unique design

The MSR miniature series is unique in its class. This is because the combination of cross roller cages with an anti-cage creep mechanism in these small carriage sizes was previously considered impossible. PM engineers have managed to bring these parts together in a compact package, the smallest in the industry.

Easy mounting 

The miniature slide table and centre rail have a standard attachment hole pattern with countersunk and threaded holes. This enables the user to mount the slide easily and simply into the application.

High precision

All the miniature slides are in-house preloaded by means of geometry pairing of the cylindrical rollers within tolerances of just 0.5 microns. This results in nearly frictionless motion with a high precision stroke and smooth running behaviour.
