Linear motion bearings are designed to move in only one direction. A liner motion bearing can come in a variety of different types. While some bearings have motorised linear slides, others might feature non-motorised slides. Roller tables, X-Y tables and machine slides are some examples of motorised slides. Dovetail slides can be either motorised or non-motorised, while roller and ball bearing slides are the non-motorised variety. The latter type is powered either manually or through inertia for low-friction linear movement. Regardless of their type, linear slides make linear motion possible.
