XSlide linear positioning stages are compact and low costLG Motion is promoting its compact low-cost linear positioning stage with a manual or motorised drive. Available from stock and backed up by the comprehensive expert design and application service offered by the team at LG Motion XSlide is already serving a wide range of industrial and science applications around the world.

The design is based on the BiSlide assembly, incorporating the dovetail ways, cleat mounting, and the slide/bearing construction. The 45 degree opposing dovetail ways on the BiSlide and XSlide assemblies provide the highest rigidity for their size compared with other dovetail designs.

The XSlide assembly offers a very capable positioning slide for its size and price. The simple design and versatility enables it to be used either singularly or in multi-axis assemblies. XSlide is manufactured from high-grade aluminium alloy precision extrusion with low-friction polymer bearings fitted to the slider for long service life, which are free from significant wear.
