The compact system has a tube that guides the end blocks and encloses a trapezoidal leadscrew, protecting it against external influences. The tube is available in anodized aluminum or stainless steel for corrosion-resistance. With this lightweight system, any applied moment is supported by the tube, eliminating the need for a second guideshaft. EasyTube is temperature-resistant to 176ºF.
