Product Description

About the XY Slides

The slides are manufactured from 6061-T6 aluminum and finished with a black anodizing. Dovetailed tables and saddles have adjustable gibs to eliminate play. Leadscrews are precision rolled from steel, and table screws are located under the table, out of the way of chips. The leadscrew backlash is adjustable.

In most slide bases, a groove is machined around the bottom of the base that can be used to attach the slide to a table using hold-down clamps (supplied). 1/4-20 mounting holes are also provided.
