The pneumatic mini slide ensures low torsion and accurate alignment. A backlash-free piston rod/yoke connection contributes to the slide’s precision and extended service life. Maintenance-free twin piston drives and high force capacity recirculating ball bearing guides provide the unit with twice the power of other slides—from 7.6 to 132.6 lbf (34 to 590 N) at 6 bar. Cushioning and proximity sensors do not extend beyond the slide’s footprint, which contributes to the new line’s compactness. Three cushioning options are available. Two slides can be piggybacked in minutes simply by bolting the units together—adaptor plates are not needed. Locating port connections, end-position sensing, and precision end-position adjustment together on one side also contributes to ease of installation. Payloads for the seven different sizes range from 1.5 to 37.5 lb. (0.7 to 17 kg), and stroke length ranges from 0.4 to 8 in (10 to 200 millimeters).
