CNC-ready Industrial Machine Slides

3D CAD images now being added!

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. We have started adding links to 3D files on some of our most popular slides and spindles and will continue as our CAD draftsman completes them. For those who need a free .IGS file viewer, see http://igsviewer.com/ . (Make sure to click on the correct download link. The page promotes a number of other downloads and can be confusing.)

The photo above shows a typical CNC-ready machine slide. They are available in several lengths up to 18" long, in 1-axis, 2-axis or multi-axis form and with several different configurations of base and movement. Photos show the slides with optional stepper motors mounted. The units are priced without stepper motors so that you have the choice of either supplying your own or purchasing stepper motors as an option. They can be controlled by Sherline's single axis programmable controllers, Sherline's full 4-axis CNC system or by your own CNC drivers.

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 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.

These slides come with a stepper motor mount to which you apply your own stepper motor and controls. If you want fully programmable control over each axis from it's own individual controller, see our CNC Slides Page.

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. The mounts are designed to accept a 23 frame size stepper motor. With the exception of the rotary motion controller, the slides are CNC-ready, which means in addition to a stepper motor you must also supply the computer, driver and software to control them. Individual-axis linear controllers are available from SherlineIPD, or the slides may be used in conjunction with your own existing CNC system. Use of a dual-shaft stepper motor allows manual cranking by means of the supplied handwheel as an alternative to computer-controlled movement.

Sherline Industrial Products Division offers optional high quality, properly sized stepper motors. They are 2 amp, 136 oz/in motors with 400 step/rev resolution. They have a 1/4" shaft at both ends, so they can be driven either by computer control or manually with a handwheel.

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. Some drawing links have already been added, and the rest will be added as our draftsman completes them.
