Linear motion bearings are bearings that are made to move in a particular direction, and they come in a wide array of different designs. Some linear slides are motorized, others are not. Examples of the former include roller and XY tables as well as machine and dovetail slides. Non-motorized slides include dovetail, roller and ball bearing varieties, which allow for movement with a minimum of friction, whether the slide is powered manually or through resistance. Regardless of the bearing type — ball, dovetail, fluid, linear roller, magnetic — linear slides make linear motion possible. On the X and Y-axis, movement is provided for machine slides, stages and tables via linear motion bearings. CBC is a nationwide distributor of linear motion bearings.
