Shock absorbing rail slides

With twice the thrust of a single-bore cylinder, the STP linear motion slide series have internal and external shock pads to eliminate metal-to-metal contact. The pads reduce noise and endof-travel impact forces. Travel adjustments with shock pads can be made from the back of the slide without increasing the overall package width. Shock absorbers and travel adjustments on retract eliminate the pitch and yaw moments usually associated with externally mounted shocks and travel adjustments. Stainless-steel fasteners provide corrosion resistance, and modular mounting kits connect similar sized slides within the series without the need for transition plates. They come in three bore sizes and three travel lengths with optional travel adjustments.
