Linear-slide leads of 0.10, 0.20, 0.50 and 1-in. travel/rev can attain speeds of 60 ips. The system provides torsional stiffness and stability for its size and weight. The slide includes a precision aluminum guide and wear-compensating, antibacklash-driven carriage with precision-rolled stainless-steel leadscrew. Slots accommodate sensor-bracket mounting onto the slide with provisions for mounting a flag onto the carriage.
