Micro-Miniature Linear Slide by Del-Tron

Product Announcement from Del-Tron Precision, Inc.

Micro-Miniature Linear Slide by Del-Tron-Image

Del-Tron's newest and smallest member of its ball bearing slide assembly product line, the C-.5, consists of a lightweight aluminum base and carriage containing two rows of precision ball bearings separated by an engineering plastic retainer, rolling between four hardened and ground steel shafts on each side. Straight line accuracy is 0.005" per inch of travel and is controlled via an internal preload gib which controls looseness while assuring smooth repeatable reciprocation. The slide's preload and running characteristics can be controlled via a row of readily accessible adjusting screws on the side of the carriage.

The Deltron "Straight Line Design" makes possible the low stiction and friction characteristics Deltrons are known for unlike recirculating designs in which the rolling elements must turn corners and often slide against each other as they travel. Standard mounting holes are included in both the base and carriage for easy installation with only two fasteners. Del-Tron's innovative engineering staff and slide design allow the C-.5 to be adapted to the designer's subassembly thereby eliminating additional components, reducing design time and tolerance buildup. Modifications of many kinds can be readily incorporated into the slides. The C-.5 is available with a two week lead time for only $79.00 each with discounts for higher quantities. This subminiature slide can be used in many types of automated industrial and laboratory equipment including fiber optic components, diagnostic medical testing instruments, semiconductor processing machinery and pick and place mechanisms. They are ideal for any application in which lightweight, accurate and frictionless movement is desired.
