The 2013 Linear Motion Catalog and Design Guide contains new product sections, including Idea encoder-ready stepper motor controllers, BGS linear rail systems, and a linear-rail application checklist. The 250+-page catalog and guide illustrates a wide range of products for use in linear-motion assemblies.

The catalog is divided into three sections: precision leadscrew and nut assemblies; linear actuators and stepper-motor drives; and motorized and nonmotorized linear-rail systems. Each section also includes a brief overview of the technology behind the products, part number construction, sizing charts, and product comparison charts.
