Courtesy: FestoThe EGSL electric slide series from Festo is designed for pick and place systems or planar surface and 3D gantries. Even with heavy loads, these slide units operate with linearity and parallelism to an accuracy of + .0006 in. The EGSL sliding electric guide also offers exceptional energy efficiency.

The EGSL electric slide provides an economical positioning function for strokes of up to 11.8 inches (300 mm). The enclosed ball screw prevents dirt or small work pieces from entering the guide area. Based on the high-precision guide of the DGSL, the pneumatic equivalent of the EGSL, these electric slides are available in four sizes as measured in slide width: 1.4, 1.8, 2.2, and 3 inches  (35, 45, 55, and 75 mm).

The motor, which is matched to the mechanical components, does not project beyond the slide. It can be mounted axially or in parallel. This results in a rectangular slide that can be easily integrated into an application. The sensors on the slide itself are also easy to install and make position sensing simple.
