Precision slides series S13

(PresseBox) (Denkendorf, ) Metal Work introduces a new series of automation slides, with a hardened and tempered and ground steel guide, which is integral with the body, and a ball-recirculation shoe, that is fixed to the mobile platen and can withstand the applied loads and torque. The movement is highly accurate and virtually without creating any end play, the piston and piston rod supporting the side loads do not get worn. All the slides are fitted with sensor magnets.

The body can be fixed on different sides using coach or through screws. The load can be fixed to the platen either at the top or the front. Compressed air supply can be connected on three sides: at the back, either on the right or the left. The sensors can be fitted retracted on either the right or left side. All these features together make the unit exceptionally versatile. The cross-section is very small, which facilitates installation of different grippers side by side in a reduced space.
The adoption of a ball-recirculation shoe instead of a linear ball guide makes it possible to mount the unit vertically. When mounting ball linear guides vertically, the ball cage tends to “slip” downwards. This series comes in four sizes, Ø 6, Ø 10, Ø 16 and Ø 20 mm, with 10 to 50 mm standard strokes. Size 6 comes in 16 x 39 mm cross sections, which means that it is ideal for use in space-saving installations. Size 20 is for heavy-duty operation as it can withstand loads of up to 10 kg.
