Manual 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 2-axis manual positioning slide. They are available in several lengths, in 1-axis, 2-axis or multi-axis form and with several different configurations of base and movement. These slides are also available with stepper motors for CNC control. All slides are available with handwheels calibrated in your choice of either inch or metric increments.

Features:

The slides are manufactured primarily from 6061-T6 aluminum and finished with a black anodizing. Some slides have ground steel beds. Leadscrew backlash is adjustable. Dovetailed tables and saddles have adjustable gibs to eliminate play. 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 table screws are located under the table, out of the way of chips. Backlash is adjustable.

In most slide bases, a groove is machined around the bottom of the base that can be used to attach the slide to a table using hold-down clamps (supplied). 1/4-20 mounting holes are also provided.

These manual slides can be converted to CNC use at a later date by removing the handwheel and collar and retrofitting a stepper motor mount and stepper motor. These same slides can also be purchased already fitted with stepper motor mounts. See the page on CNC machine 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. At present we offer links to dimensioned .JPG plans on many of our products, but these will be updated soon to a 3D format.
