Oilless Guide Elements

Clients can avail from us an extensive array of Oilless Guide Elements. Designed and manufactured from high grade metals and cutting edge technology as per the set industry norms, these guide elements assure longer life. These elements are known for corrosion resistance, accurate dimensions, light weight, perfect finish and durability. To meet the varied needs of clients, we offer these in different shapes and sizes at most affordable prices.


Oilless Guide Elements with embedded solid lubricants are used in applications of linear or rotary motion in toolmaking, general machine construction and similar engineering uses. The structure of the base material provides closely spaced deposits of solid lubricant - properties and specifications as per table below.

The elements satisfy highest demands in terms of load bearing capacity at low sliding speeds, within an extensive temperature band.

The lubricant deposits are arranged in staggered geometrical patterns, thus ensuring optimal lubrication effect along the sliding motion, especially with counter
bearings which are hardened and ground. The sliding surfaces should be lightly greased with lithium grease emulsion, priorto commissioning.

On flat guideways and pillar guides, from 25 to 30 per cent of the sliding surfaces consist of lubricant deposits. Surfaces of counter bearings must have a ground finish, preferably with a lay parallel with the sliding motion.

Advantages of Oilless Guide Elements

  • Good emergency sliding properties
  • Highest carrying capacity at low speed
  • Use under water or with chemical solutions
  • Extremely wide temperature resistance - hot and cold
  • Damping properties in presence of vibration

PV value

  • The permissible bearing load is determined from the pressure and the PV value, which defines the bearing wear.
  • The PV value is the product of surface pressure (P) and running velocity (V).
  • The permissible bearing load is determine from the PV value.
