Thread: HIWIN from China
anyone have buying experience with HIWIN rails and carriages from China?(Aliexpress)
Near enough - I bought two 20mm, 2200mm long rails with bearings from aliexpress, TBI brand. This one to be precise:
2SET Linear Bearing Slide Rail Guide Z2 TR20 2200L + 4 TRH20FL CNC-in Linear Guides from Industry & Business on Aliexpress.com
When I ordered it was $415 for those rails including shipping, however I did have to pay about (can't remember exactly) £30 in customs charges. I've not actually mounted the rails on my machine yet, however they look fine.
Their service was excellent and communication was good considering the language barrier. If you do order from aliexpress make sure you get rails with the right pre-load. For a router you'll almost certainly want 'medium' preload. I'm intending to get some more soon...

Thanks for that Jonathan
TBI are very good for there ballscrews and bearings, perhaps not the quite as good as hiwin but there ballscrews are mint. they put the stuff on eBay to shame! last time i got some TBI screws they were a lot cheaper than Chi and the machining to my spec was far superior.
Thank you Jonathan and AdCNC
I'll stay away for awhile from buying from Aliexpress, as I bought a few minutes ago from Germany's ebay, rails and carriages 20 series (tolerance H) cost me 150eu delivered for the Z axis.
but for X and Y I'll buy from Ali, I found a few good deals there.
If someone have interest in Hiwin15 or THK30 series from Germany see link:
