The new, ready-to-install MSC-EL mini-slide with integrated electrical drive reduces the time required to plan, install, and start up customized handling systems. Two sizes are available — the MSC-EL-12 and MSC-EL-16. The units can be ordered in standard lengths and are capable of travel to any position from 50 to 150 mm. Each module has the same mounting and cross-section dimensions as its pneumatically driven counterpart. A brushless, 24-Vdc motor powers the slide. The slide features an integrated belt drive gear as well as a ball-screw assembly and a lubricated-for-life ball-rail system. Maximum load for Size 12 is 4 kg for horizontal motion and 2.0 kg for vertical motion. Maximum load for Size 16 is 5 kg for horizontal motion and 2.5 kg for vertical.
