CNCs for woodworking does use linear bearings, but for the simple to use, cost efficient router table lift – people (buyers) will not spend the $$$ for linear bearing since they are not required. the router does not move while working. you do not need machininst precision in it’s raising mechanism. FYI, I have not experienced poor non smooth raising mechanism yet so am just trying to assume you are comparing it to CNC smoothness and precision – which is really not necessary for a router lift.
