The supported rod design increases rigidity while maintaining the standard configuration of smooth rod set ups, this allows for heavier loads to be incorporated into your application.
The SBR Supported Rods are used with SBR Linear motion ball slides. Supported smooth rod can be used over longer lengths without the need of additional supporting brackets, this allows for longer continuous lengths without a support block getting in the way.
Supported smooth rod provides maximum rigidity and stiffness to the shaft throughout the whole stroke, and ensure the performance of the unit.
To upgrade from standard smooth rod to supported smooth rod all you need to is replace the support blocks and smooth rod with a supported smooth rod. you can now use a SBR bearing with as many supported smooth rods joined together as you application requires. common applications are CNC machines, 3D printers, Measuring equipment，Robotics, and instrumentation as well as Other Machinery.
