As a simple basic component, the shaft block is a pillar of mechanical engineering. Therein also lies its function. Fixed at each end of a precision steel shaft, shaft blocks support the entire linear system, which usually consists of the housing unit, hardened precision steel shaft and the shaft blocks.

In addition to the easy assembly of the steel shaft and the quick alignment at the stop edge, the shaft blocks are characterized by their high precision. Since the shaft blocks only support the guide shaft at the ends of the structure, they are equipped with a lateral clamping with clamping screw.
The shaft blocks in the MiniTec range are made of aluminum. Compared to in-house designs, they represent a more precise and cost-effective alternative. The selection among different designs and dimensions offers enough room for individual solutions.
