In this Design Guide, the editors of Design World detail the most common linear bushing and ball spline types for motion control -- as well best practices for sizing, selection, and installation.
Linear bushings are a type of linear bearing based on round or modified round shaft upon which an engineered cylindrical bushing (studded on its inner diameter with rollers) rides. A related technology — that of ball splines — are a type of linear bearing based on round shaft having precision-machined grooves down its axial length. Riding upon this is a sleeve-shaped cylindrical nut with geometry compatible with the shaft’s geometry.
