The Velmex XSlide™ Assembly is a compact positioning stage highly suitable for either high performance incrementing or scanning of smaller loads. Their compact design makes them ideal for limited space applications. Constructed with hard-coat anodized, aluminum dovetail ways and smooth motion PTFE bearings; XSlide stages deliver higher rigidity for longer life and more precise movement. The Assemblies have a load capacity of 35 lbs. (15.9 kg.) horizontally and 10 lbs. (4.5 kg.) vertically. Maximum travel is to 30.5" (77.5 cm). These dovetail stages are available in both manual and motorized units.
The XSlide carriage rides on the outside of the ways allowing for a more compact design and easier access for adjustments. All fine tuning/wear compensation can be easily accomplished without removing a payload from the slide.
