Designed as an ultraprecise slide for positioning or as a pick-and-place system, the DGSL slide uses an integrated bearing system with 0.01-mm accuracy, linearity, and parallelism

Designed as an ultraprecise slide for positioning or as a pick-and-place system, the DGSL slide uses an integrated bearing system with 0.01-mm accuracy, linearity, and parallelism. The DGSL comes in eight sizes from 4 to 20-mm diameter and with strokes up to 200 mm. An optional clamping unit and an end-position interlock prevents lowering of loads onto workpiece carriers in the case of compressed-air-supply failure and provides protection in emergency-stop situations. Three different end-stop systems — shock-absorber, cushioned metal stops, polymer stops — are available.
