Model Number of QW Series

HIWIN-QW series guideway can be classified into non-interchangeable and interchangeable types. The sizes are identical. The main difference is that the interchangeable blocks and rails can be freely exchanged. Because of dimensional control, the interchangeable type linear guideway is a perfect choice for the client when rails do not need to be paired for an axis. And since the QW and WE share the identical rails, the customer does not need to redesign when choosing the QW series. Therefore the HIWIN-QW linear guideway has increased applicability.
