Positioning slides offer flexibility, value
MS46 Series positioning slides from the Thomson brand of Danaher Motion, available in virtually any length, let users optimize machine design at a fraction of the cost of competitive products.
MS46 Series positioning slides from the Thomson brand of Danaher Motion, available in virtually any length, let users optimize machine design at a fraction of the cost of competitive products. The slides are constructed of lightweight aluminum, making them ideal as the carried axis in a multi-axis assembly. They are offered in strokes to 1,634 mm (64 in.) for light to medium loads in factory automation, life science, packaging, and semiconductor applications. Slides come in pre-loaded ballscrew, lead screw, and belt-drive versions. Ballscrew versions are available with leads of 5- and 10-mm and are engineered for long life in high duty cycle applications. Lead screw versions feature 3-, 10- and 25-mm leads and are suited for smooth motion and load holding in vertical applications without the use of a separate power-off brake. Belt-drive models allow twice the slide length compared with ballscrew and lead screw versions, and offer three standard Micron NemaTrue 23 gearbox ratios (3:1, 5:1 and 10:1) for torque multiplication and inertia matching for maximum machine performance in high-speed applications.
