    Thank you for your question!

    Linkage is an elementary mechanical function performed by the part of an object that joins together two or more pieces of a technical object.

    Guidance is an elementary mechanical function that allows the parts of a technical object to move precisely.

    Thus, links hold parts together while guiding directs their movement.

    Do not hesitate if you have other questions!
