Manually-Operated Velmex UniSlide® Systems are available in a variety of configurations, models and sizes including Linear Slide Assemblies, Elevating Tables and XY Tables. Specialized UniSlide systems including our TA Measurement System for Tree Ring Analysis and Petrographics Analysis for Concrete are also available.


Manual UniSlide® Assemblies Overview

Velmex UniSlide Assemblies are available in manually-operated and motor-driven models to meet a wide range of applications when reliable, precise linear motion is a requirement. UniSlide stages are compact, delivering maximum travel in the shortest amount of work space. Their modular design allows for easy construction of multi-axis systems.

There are five manual series of Linear UniSlide Assemblies. Configurations include Free Sliding, Screw Drive, Rapid and Fine Motion; Graduated Knob and Scale with Vernier. Left-Right Screw Motion UniSlide systems feature two carriages (sliders) and are ideal for applications where two load objects must share a common axis of movement. Standard travel distances of Velmex Manual Linear UniSlide systems range from 1.5" (3.81 cm) to 42" (106.7 cm). There are three manual series of XY Tables. There are four series of Elevating Tables. UniSlide Elevating Tables and UniSlide XY Tables can lift up to 100 lbs. (45.5 kg.).

UniSlide Linear Slide Assemblies, XY Tables, Elevating Tables and Velmex Rotary Tables can be combined for an infinite selection of custom configurations. Note: Manual UniSlides cannot be converted to motorized. They would need to be returned to the factory for conversion. Purchase a motor-ready version to add a separately purchased motor.

Screw Drive UniSlide

Screw Drive Models – Slide movement is controlled by a lead screw. Velmex lead screws are formed by rolling through precision dies rather than cut on a screw machine, delivering higher quality and accuracy. There are a variety of different diameter lead screws available from 1/4" to 1/2" and 7 mm to 14 mm. Each have different advance ratings. Configuration available on A15, A25, A40, A60 and B90 Series.

 UniSlide with Graduate Knob

Graduated Knob Models – The position of the payload is measured by combining the readings from the linear scale and engraved knob or drum dial. Measures position from 0.0001" or 0.01 mm. Configuration available on A15, A25, A40, A60 and B90 Series.

 UniSlide with Scale and Vernier

Scale and Vernier Screw Drive Models – Slide movement is controlled by a lead screw. Velmex lead screws are formed by rolling through precision dies rather than cut on a screw machine, delivering higher quality and accuracy. There are a variety of different diameter lead screws available from 1/4" to 1/2" and 7 mm to 14 mm. Each have different advance ratings. Configuration available on A15, A25, A40 and A60 Series.

Rapid Advance Models – Are for quickly repositioning the slider by uncoupling the drive system. This saves time when the slider will be moved frequently or when the base length is long. Each have varying lengths of fine adjustment. The limited fine adjust models use a clamping-like drive. The unlimited fine adjust models use a lead screw and pinion design. Rapid Advance models are not recommended for vertical (Z axis) mounting.

Lead Screws

Velmex Lead ScrewsA wide selection of high-quality lead screws provide flexibility in designing the drive portion of Velmex translation stages.

The lead screws we use are all manufactured by us to exacting standards. They are formed by rolling through precision dies rather than cutting on a screw machine, resulting in higher quality and accuracy. The screws are made of either 303 stainless steel or electroless nickel-plated, cold rolled steel. Other materials are available for specialized applications. Please check with our Application Engineers for details.

The lead screws are available in a range of diameters with both English and Metric Threads. The pitch for English Thread lead screws range from 2.5 turns per inch to 40 turns per inch. The Metric lead screws range from 5 turns to 10 turns per metric thread. We offer both Standard accuracy and Precision accuracy (Precision grade) screws.

In addition we make specialized left and right hand threaded lead screws for together and apart movement of the payload carriage on linear stages.

The following chart shows the lead screw specifications for manual UniSlide Stages.

Adapter Plates

XY Plates – allow two UniSlides to be converted into an XY motion system. The aluminum plates mate the slider of the lower (X) UniSlide at a right angle to the base of the top (Y) UniSlide. You can combine UniSlides of the same series, same lengths, different series and varying lengths for a virtually limitless selection of configurations. You can also can also combine motorized and manual UniSlides.

The plates can also be used as auxiliary payload mounting plates. This provides more mounting surface area for the payload, although it does not increase the size of the load the UniSlide can handle. The Adapter Plates also provide an easy way to mount a UniSlide upside (slider) down.

Locks – There are a number ways to lock the carriage (slider) position on UniSlides. They include:

Thumb lock on lead screw

Thumbscrew-on-Lead-Screw Lock (-TL) – An easy method to fix the slider utilizing a simple thumbscrew. The thumbscrew lock increases the overall length of the UniSlide base. This lock type is not available on Rapid Advance models.

Travelling Slider Lock

Traveling Slider Lock (-TSL) – This lock attaches to the slider to lock the carriage in place. Available on Free Sliding, Screw Motion and Graduated Knob models only.

Slider Lock

Slider Lock (-SLR or -SLL) – This lock is mounted at the mid-point on the base and is tightened to prevent slider movement. This is only available on slides where the carriage (slide) length is greater than one-half the base length. It can be mounted on the right (-SLR) or left (-SLL) of the base.

Revolution Counter

Revolution Counter (-RC) – A mechanical revolution counter provides a convenient 1/10 revolution increment count. Readouts in either 0.01" or 0.1 mm. Counts precisely with 0.100" or 1 mm lead screws. Other screws require additional calculations. For details see UniSlide Counter page.

Left Right Screw Motion

Left-Right Screw Motion – This configuration is very useful for applications where two objects must share a common axis of movement. This assembly incorporates two carriages driven by a single right- and left-hand threaded lead screw. When the knob is turned, the carriages simultaneously move toward or away from each other.

Independent Left-Right Slider UniSlide

Two Independent Carriages – a variation on the left-right screw motion UniSlide is one containing two lead screws with control knobs at both ends of the assembly. Each lead screw and carriage operates independently.

Right angle gear box on UniSlide

Right Angle Gearbox – Allows the control knob or wheel to be offset perpendicular to the UniSlide ways. Ideal for tight spaces or applications where access to the end of the stage is limited. Available on A25, A40, A60 and B90 Series. For more specifics and to see the gearbox in use on a Velmex stage visit the UniSlide Adapters page.

Way covers on UniSlides

Way Covers (-WC) – Protect the slider and dovetail base from dust, dirt and grit that could hamper the efficient operation of the slide. Way covers increase slider height and reduce the travel length of linear UniSlide stages. Not available on Series A15 Assemblies. Available on free sliding, screw drive and graduated knob models of the other assemblies. For more details visit the Way Cover page.

Way covers on UniSlides

Wrench - Retainer Nut – Velmex has a custom-designed wrench to easily adjust and remove the threaded retainer nut on UniSlides. When needed, this makes removing and changing the lead screw simple and easy. The wrench is designed for the smaller diameter lead screws (1/4" or 7 mm - A15 Series and some A25) with the split Delrin® thrust bearings and the threaded retainer nut. Note: larger diameter lead screws (3/8", 1/2", 10 mm and 14 mm) use steel bearings and a snap ring retainer.

Many questions can be answered by reviewing the "Features", "Model / Series", "Specifications", "Options / Accessories" and "Technical Documentation" sections for each product line. Additional FAQs about product comparisons, product construction, purchasing and shipping can be found on the company FAQ page.

Do UniSlides® need lubrication and how often?

Lubrication is important for motor-driven systems or wherever you want maximum life and the lowest friction. UniSlide Assemblies can be lubricated with Velmex Lubriplate Aero®. Only a few drops are required to keep your slide running smoothly. The load and hours of use effect the amount and frequency of lubrication. See the user guide that came with your UniSlide for recommendations.

Can UniSlides be mounted together?

Yes, UniSlides can be mounted together in XY, XZ, XYZ configurations. Mounting UniSlide assemblies in multi-axis systems requires the use of adapter plates and brackets. They also can be combined with Velmex Rotary Tables and our other linear stages to make custom systems to meet a wide range of applications. See UniSlide Options and Accessories for more information on the plates and adapters.

How do I mount a UniSlide to my working surface?

UniSlides have pre-drilled holes in the base. The surface should be flat to avoid binding and for the slide to operate smoothly and accurately. Steel or aluminum are recommended for the surface. Use the mounting screws provided. Begin in the center of the base and work toward the ends uniformly tightening the screws. Refer to the UniSlide Users Manual for the torque specifications.

How can I access the mounting holes the base of the A15 Series UniSlide?

You need to disassemble an A15 Series UniSlide in order to mount it on to a surface or another slide. Please follow our Disassemble A15 Series Instructions.

How do you adjust the carriage fit on the UniSlide?

An adjustable expansion gib controls the fit of the UniSlide carriage. Adjust by tightening the Allen head screws located at the end of the slider. See the UniSlide Owners Manual for how and when to adjust.

Can a manual UnSlide Stage be converted to a motorized one?

UniSlide Stages cannot be converted, except at the factory. You should purchase the version you require at the onset. It is possible, however, to buy Velmex UniSlide Stages pre-configured for both manual and motorized operation with a double shaft stepper motor.

Options and accessories like revolution counters can be added to Velmex assemblies after the fact. However, because of special adjustments, possible cutting or turning and additional hardware that may be required, the assembly needs to be returned to the factory to properly fit the additional component. There is a nominal charge for reconfiguring assemblies.
