    Thanks for your question!

    Linkage is an elementary mechanical function performed by a member which joins together two parts of a technical object.

    Guiding is an elementary mechanical function which allows the parts of a technical object to move in a precise manner.

    Thus, linkage holds the parts together, while guiding only directs their movement.
