Precision Pneumatic Mini-slide

The DGSL is billed as an ultra-precise slide for positioning or as an easy pick-and-place system.

The main design element to this precision slide is the use of an integrated bearing system with an accuracy of 0.01mm and linearity and parallelism in the 1/100mm range. Available in eight sizes from 4mm to 20mm diameter and with strokes up to 200mm, the mini-slide covers a range of applications. The mini-slide offers three different end stop systems—shock-absorber, cushioned metal or polymer stops. It is suited for the electronics industry where minute parts need to be handled with precision and where space is restricted. The optional clamping unit and the end-position interlock prevents undesired lowering of loads onto work piece carriers in the case of compressed air supply failure, and provides protection in emergency stop situations.
