Maintenance and repair tips keep slides running smoothly

Accuracy is important in the manu-facturing industry, and properly functioning machinery is an essential building block to meeting many industry standards. Slides are often found in machinery that is running eight or more hours a day, sometimes seven days a week. This ongoing use as well as environmental factors — such as dirt, machining chips

Rod Locks Hold Precisely with Minimal Backlash

In many applications, including aerospace, it is critical that components do not move in a predictable manner. The RLSS Series Rod Locks hold precisely with low backlash for linear motion control applications where high accuracy is required. The spring-engaged, air-released series‚—available in an array of standard and custom sizes‚—features a wide clamping surface to ensure
