SCHNEEBERGERĀ® - Manufacturer of Linear Technology

SCHNEEBERGERĀ® Lineartechnik is a leading figure in the field of linear technology.

Our product and manufacturing range includes linear bearings, profiled linear guideways, measuring systems, gear racks, slides, positioning systems and mineral casting.

SCHNEEBERGER serves equipment manufacturers, operating in various industries worldwide, such as machine tool, solar technology, semiconductor technology, electrical engineering, medical engineering and many more.


Linear technology in medical and electronic industries

High precision linear motion technology allows miniaturisation of electronics. It is difficult to imagine our everyday lives without the existance of integrated electronics components, as they all at the core of our smartphones, sat-navs and credit card readers.

The scale of development in electronic communications technologies is incredible, and SCHNEEBERGER has made a remarkable contribution to these advances.

Thanks to high-quality linear motion technology, it is possible to place even the smallest components reliably, rapidly, with extreme precision onto carrier strips and attach and weld the micro-thin wires from the integrated components extremely close together.

Miniature bearings

Our miniature bearings allow customers to achieve the most significant density of components on their circuit boards, and make the production process faster, more precise, and therefore more economic. They produce real added value for the electronics and semiconductor industries and its end customers.

Our miniscale miniature products feature an integrated optical measuring system, too. This combines the two core functions of guiding and measuring within the smallest footprint.

Customer benefits of miniature bearings

  • Low cost construction
  • Minimal footprint
  • Fast installation and set-up
  • Consistently high level of accuracy
  • Long lifespan

Linear bearings - Used to increase life expectancy

Linear bearings increase the life expectancy of both machines and people.

Whenever devices and machines need to make highly dynamic and precise linear movements, linear guides with the integrated FORMULA-S cage control system meet these requirements. As such, FORMULA-S ensures that the cage, which is supported by frictionless bearings, is guided reliably in the centre of two rails. Linear bearings play a vital role in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of tumours. The more precise the movements, the more meaningful the tomography images, x-rays and tissue probes. This in turn, produces more accurate diagnosis.

FORMULA-S is also a key component in the electronics sector. The technology is so mature that we now supply the world's leading manufacturers of wire bonders. SCHNEEBERGER also occasionally integrates customer-specific products.


The customer benefits of linear bearings FORMULA-S

  • The cage is always centred, despite any application-specific influences (such as uneven load, high acceleration, installation orientation, temperature variation)
  • No time lost due to corrective adjustments, resulting in very high MTBF and MTBR
  • Selected preload has no effect on the control system
  • Long lifetime due to selection of materials and rack profile
  • Supports vacuum applications to 10-7mbar
