1. Linear Motor Slides

Linear Motor slides offer a number of distinct advantages over conventional ball screw slides. With up to 1.2 G of acceleration linear slides can improve cycle times by 18%. Over a two shift 4000 hour operation, that can add up to over 600 hours of additional utilization. Because there is no mechanical coupling associated with ball screws, there is zero backlash and zero wear for years of certain dependability. Together with a 1/100 micron nanometer users will experience the highest level of tool control path and outstanding surface finishes.
