TYPE VSL

ADJUSTMENT SLIDE

The adjustment slides of series VSL come with a dovetail for more stability and maximum liftings of 3/16, 3/8, 1/2, 1, 2, or 3 inches (5, 10, 15, 25, 50, or 75 mm) produced in the versions of one, two, or three axes.

AREAS OF APPLICATION

Our adjustment slides find applications where precise positioning or any linear motion is needed in machining and handling machinery. 

MATERIAL AND SLIDE VERSIONS

Visualization of an X-, Y-, Z- arrangement of VS adjustment slides.

Our adjustment slides come with standard aluminum extrusion, and we offer spindles, end plates, and fixing screws optionally. Upon request, we can provide nickel-plated surfaces and any other materials. Our repeating accuracy is 39 thousand an inch (=0.05 mm).

LOAD RATING AND WEIGHT

Depending on size, adjustments slide have a load rating from .7 lbf - 100 lbf (= 3 N – 441 N) and a weight from 1.4 oz to 10.14 lbs (= 0.04 – 4.60 kg). 

MAINTENANCE

All slides generally need very low maintenance. Feel free to contact us and verify maintenance requirements based on your environment. 

ADVANTAGES OF
ADJUSTMENT SLIDE TYPE VSL

  • Very smooth linear motion in operation

  • Very high precision due to increased stability

  • Simple and compact design

  • Very low weight 

  • Non-corrosive and additional surface finishes are available

  • Very low maintenance in general

STANDARD IMAGE VS. SLIDE

Adjustment slides of series VSL come with a dovetail to increase rigidity and a robust structure for rough operations while providing a cost-effective solution.

Type VSL:

  • Spindle bearing with pre-stressed ball bearings

  • Conical feed rail

  • Clamping with lateral screw available

  • Adjustment precision is smaller than .8 inch (=0.02 mm)
