Velmex’s UniSlide Assemblies feature compact optical encoders for positioning or gaging in manufacturing and testing. Mounted on the screw-driven slides, the encoders are offered in two resolutions: 1 micron and 5 microns. LED digital readout has an RS-232C interface, a zero reset button and an inch/metric toggle switch. Built for loads as heavy as 300 lbs, the stages come in four cross-sectional widths: 2.5", 4", 6" and 9". Able to be motor-driven, the slides’ travels range from 1" to 84".
