UniSlide XY 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.

A1500XY Adapter Plate – To mount an A15 or MA15 Series UniSlide to another A15 or MA15 Series in XY.

UniSlide XZ Adapter Plates

XZ Plates – Allow UniSlide assemblies to be positioned vertically facing in any of four directions. The adapter plates allow the vertical stage to be end mounted to the carriage on the horizontal base stage. The plates connect to the given series and the next smaller size. The XZ Plates are for light loads and short slides.

Platform Shelf

Platform Shelf – A right angled bracket designed to be used with UniSlide® Elevating Tables. However, they also can be used with vertically mounted UniSlide Assemblies to support a payload. The shelf can be inverted depending on the motion required. There is a platform shelf available for the Series A26, A40 and A60 UniSlide® Assemblies.

UniSlide Gearbox

Right Angle Gearbox – Allows the control knob or wheel to be offset perpendicular to the UniSlide ways / centerline. Control knob can be positioned any one of four ways: up, down left or right. Ideal for tight spaces or applications where access to the end of the stage is limited. Note the offset, right-angle gearbox must be ordered with the stage. It cannot be retrofitted.

Right Angle Gearbox – Available on A25 and A40 Series.
