7. Taiwan CPC

Taiwan   cpc brands of linear guides

Taiwan CPC company, miniature linear guides started in 1990, and miniature linear motion components were first applied to precision measuring and testing instruments. Taiwan CPC company, CPC guide rail is a kind of rolling guide. Using the steel ball making an infinite rolling cycle between the slider and the slide rail, the load platform can easily move linearly with high Precision along the slide rail.

Chieftec Precision Co., Ltd is abbreviated as CPC. CPC pays attention to the importance of talents in both morality and technology. The entire core team develops and manufactures high-quality linear motion systems and components to create sustainable product operations and innovation.

The miniature Zhide linear slides began in 1990. The initial team of Zhide devoted themselves to its strengths of micro-series slides. The CPC micro slides are mainly used in precision measurement, electronics, automation, semiconductors, etc., and even more internationally. Biomedical technology is favored and affirmed. As the company continues to grow and innovate, CPC linear slide products have been expanded to large slides in a short period of time. The ARC series is mainly used in automation equipment, while the HRC and ERC series are aimed at high-load machines such as machine tools. The designed high-rigidity products and ARR, HRR, LRR roller-type linear slides can provide customers with higher rigidity and high precision requirements.

Now, the comprehensiveness of CPC’s entire linear slide products is sufficient to meet the entire market demand of linear slides and industrial robots.
