Frictionless miniature slide has no cage creep

Micromech Ltdvisit website


The PMM compact slide from Micromech has consistent high running motion accuracy, which results in unsurpassed reliability. Due to the innovative design combined with a fine adjustment (preloading is by selection on ball diameter), these slides are showing an extreme low friction resistance, smooth running qualities and long operation lifetime.

Designed for rapid and precise movements, the slides have stainless steel table bodies, coming in three sizes with stroke lengths of 5-70mm. Ultra-compact and lightweight, the bodies are made from stainless steel type 1.4034 and hardness 54-57 Hrc.

The PMM slide can be mounted horizontally or vertically and the specially designed U-shaped brass cage eliminates cage creep thanks to the use of screws. The slide-top and centre rails are of equal lengths and mounting surfaces are precision ground. All the flanks of the slide are ground parallel to the guideways and so can serve as reference faces. The slide-top and centre rail are provided with tapped attachment holes drilled to a standard pitch configuration.

These ultra-compact miniature slides weigh from only 2-70 grams and are aimed at meeting the demand from scientific, pharmaceutical and research establishments.

Micromech is the UK distributor for these slides.
