Energy-efficient electric slide

The energy-efficient EGSL Series electric slide, for pick-and-place systems or planar surface and 3D gantries, operates with linearity and parallelism to an accuracy of 0.0006 in. (0.015 mm).

The slide provides positioning for strokes of up to 11.8-in. (300 mm). An enclosed ball screw prevents dirt or small workpieces from entering the guide area. The slides come in four sizes as measured in slide width: 1.4, 1.8, 2.2, and 3 in. (35, 45, 55, and 75 mm).

The unit’s motor, which is matched to the mechanical components, does not project beyond the slide. It can mount axially or in parallel. The slide’s sensors are easy to install and simplify position sensing.
