Techno, Inc. Linear Motion Systems introduces the improved Heavy-Duty Slide 2, constructed from a single rigid aluminum extrusion profile and capable of handling heavy-cantilevered loads. The 225 mm wide modular design is available in travels from 122 mm (4.8") to 2,722 mm (107.2") with a wraparound motor mounting kit that allows for longer travel with shorter overall lengths. The Heavy-Duty Slide 2 is made to be versatile with T-slots on three sides for easy mounting options.
"The improved design on our Heavy-Duty Slide 2 models offer customers an affordable, yet wide stable base for use in any assembly equipment," says Joe Griffin, linear motion systems sales manager. "By providing a slide that can handle large cantilevered loads, we increase the list of applications it can be used for. We also use Teflon lip seals, so the full length of travel is utilized and the interior components are guarded against contaminants."
All models are fit with four precision rails, four bearing blocks, home reference and end limit switches. Customers can choose from inline or side-mounted stepper motors or servomotors. The 16 mm anti-backlash ball screws are available in 2.5 mm (.1"), 5 mm (.2"), 10 mm (.4"), and 20 mm (.8") leads; complete CAD Drawings are available on the web.
