Linear flow splitting is a massive forming process that allows bifurcated profiles to be formed out of sheet metal in integral style. Linear flowsplit components have specific technology-induced properties (e.g. ultra fine grained microstructures at the surface of the flanges and the splitting ground). That is why they are predestined to be used in linear guides.Additionally linear flowsplit components enable to integrate supplemental functions (e.g. clamping) in linear guides. These functions need to be developed and implemented by emphasizing the advantages of the new technology. Based on a property-focused examination, different design concepts of linear motion guides of linear flow split components are worked out. Because of the supplemental, integrated functions, these concepts have an additional benefit and should combine good precision with low costs due to the technological advantages.
