Adapter Plates

Adapter Plates and Spacers – A variety of adapter plates to mount XSlides to other Velmex products like BiSlides and Rotary Tables. There are also adapter plates with spacers to carry larger payloads. They also prevent restrictions to full travel, allowing the payload to pass over the motor block.

XS001-20 Adapter Plate – connects an XSlide™ to a BiSlide®.

Gussets

Gussets - used as end mounting for vertical XSlide™ assemblies perpendicular to the X or Y plane. The gusset provides higher rigidity. They are available in various sizes for vertical and gantry mounting.

XGST-2.5 – 2.5" tall gusset to end-mount an XSlide. Also available in a longer 12" version for longer Z axis stages. (XGST-1-12) (Cleats and hardware are included.)

The requirement for a gusset is determined by travel length and load. Usually recommended for a Z axis where the travel will be >4 inches.

Cleats and Hardware

Cleats - used to mount the XSlide assembly to a surface and to configure two XSlides as XY or XZ axis. One pair of cleats has 190 lbs of holding capability. Use in pairs only. Cleating Recommendations.

XMC-2 Standard Cleat – mounts the XSlide to a base/surface. It also mounts to another XSlide payload carriage to create XY configurations.

XMC-3 Sandwich Cleat – connects two parallel bases.

XMC-4 Cross Cleat – mounts an XSlide to a gantry or to mount 2 XSlides back to back in XY. (4 cleats with nuts and bolts required)

XMC-5 Optical Cleat – mounts an XSlide to an optical table.

Mounting bolts and other hardware – for use with the cleats to create strong, secure attachments. XMB-1 secures XSlide base and mounts XSlide base to XSlide carriage for an XY configuration. XMB-2 end mounts XSlide. XMB-3 mounts XSlide to 1" centers optical table. XMB-4 mounts XSlide to 25mm centers optical table.

Preconfigured Frames/Bases

XF2 Style –framing tables have I-Beam top rails on all four sides for maximum support. Standard sizes are 10"x10"x10", 12"x12"x12" and 14"x14"x14". However, a base can easily be custom designed to our specific requirements.
