Electric Mini Slide EGSL. The EGSL is a ball screw-based electromechanical slide used in conjunction with servo and stepper motors in precise positioning and pressing/clamping applications. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.The Electric Mini Slide EGSL from Festo is a compact precision slide with superior load rating and flexibility in mounting, motor connectivity, sensor integration, and mechanical interfaces for multiaxis handling solutions. The protective ball screw cover ensures safe operation in harsh industry environments. Mounting holes on both the slide and yoke facilitate easy direct connections of multiple slides for compact gantry solutions. With a service life of 20 to 30 million cycles, the EGSL slide provides reliable operation. The slide comes in a range of sizes, strokes, and pitches to meet a variety of application demands. Sleek and compact, the EGSL is well suited for fast, controlled pick-and-place applications. The compact EGSL slide achieves maximum acceleration and deceleration of up to 15 sq m and maximum speed of 1.3 m/s, with a pushing force up to 300 N to handle work loads up to 14 kg. Linearity and parallelism are in the 1/100 mm range. Free positioning is possible with a repetition accuracy of ± 0.015 mm. The bearing cage of the actuator features a rack-and-pinion arrangement that prevents creeping, guarantees service life, and ensures durability and superior running characteristics of the guide.
