Programmable CNC Industrial Machine Slides

 

(Above) P/N 6554 8" slide with stepper motor and programmable controller (Click on photo to view a larger image.)

The photo above shows a typical powered slide. They are available in several lengths, in 1-axis, 2-axis or multi-axis form and with several different configurations of base and movement. All are now available with either inch (20 TPI) or metric (1mm pitch) leadscrews and a controller programmed for the appropriate pitch. These slides are driven by a NEMA 23 stepper motor controlled by input at the stand-alone keypad. Programming is simple and controls speed, direction and distance.

FEATURES:

Dovetailed tables and saddles have adjustable gibs to eliminate play. The slides are manufactured primarily from 6061-T6 aluminum and finished with a black anodizing. Some slides have ground steel beds. Handwheels on the rear shaft of the stepper motors are installed for manual control and positioning. They have a red anodized finish and the markings are laser engraved through the red finish into the white aluminum for high visibility. Handwheels are graduated in .001" increments on inch slides and in .01mm increments on metric slides. Leadscrews are precision rolled from steel, and are located under the table, out of the way of chips and coolant. Backlash is adjustable.

The stepper motor mounts feature dual ball bearings with a preload nut to eliminate endplay. A dampened coupling connects the 1/4" diameter shaft of the stepper motor to the leadscrew. Use of a dual-shaft stepper motor allows manual cranking by means of the supplied handwheel as an alternative to computer-controlled movement. The controller uses microstepping to provide accurate, smooth travel.

All of these slides are also available with manual handwheels instead of stepper motor mounts. See our page on manual slides.

3D Drawings:

Sherline is in the process of producing 3D CAD files in .IGS format for designers who need to spec our parts into your machine designs. At present we offer links to dimensioned .JPG plans on many of our products, but these will be updated soon to a 3D format.
