April 29, 2015—

Suhner recently redesigned its entire precision slide program with an emphasis on product performance and cost benefits to the customer. 

The Suhner feed slide program is based on a modular design concept and includes four basic slide sizes. Within the four size classes, there are a number of different stroke lengths. Features include: pneumatic feed with external hydraulic brake cylinder, with or without peck-feed function; pneumatic feed with integrated brake cylinder which allows feed control over the entire stroke length; hydraulic for higher feed forces; CNC-controlled, servo motor and pre-loaded nut and ball screw.

While Suhner slide assemblies offer a number of standard features, there are additional options such as central lubrication for right or left hand slide lubrication, cam rail and switch assembly including telescopic or bellow type way covers. This standard program is adaptable anytime project specific requirements change.

Built on simplicity with standardized and modular feed slide components, Suhner slides assemblies can be delivered in a short time. Spare parts availability is guaranteed for 10 years. In addition, the creation of a certified operating manual can be avoided. It is provided with the product delivery and includes additional resources for technical and manufacturing support

Two rails, four pre-loaded bearing blocks and a robust ball screw are nested inside a low profile base and saddle design, made to withstand the toughest test in manufacturing over many years without compromising quality or performance.  

Suhner feed slides are designed based on a modular system and are tailored for the application of the Suhner spindle program.
