Guides, guide strips, guide rings, bushings: Guide rings and tape provide the function of resistance to deformation by pressure under radial load and drive the piston and rod in the hydraulic/pneumatic device, reducing friction between the moving parts. without the guide rings, metal contact with the cylinder head would damage the system. Guide rings are used to replace the traditional bronze bushing in hydraulic/pneumatic cylinders in case of insufficient lubrication.

We have guide rings as well as guide strips available from stock in different materials for different applications.
