Z Chain Slides

The Z chain slide provides short strokes of Z travel with a wide range of bellows I.D.

The slide is provided through three lead screws which are synchronously driven by a drive chain. Manual operation is provided by a handwheel assembly operating through a wormdrive reduction system.

Application

The Z chain slides are heavy duty translators designed to move heavy objects accurately in and out of the vacuum system. They are well suited to applications involving equipment insertion and withdrawal from points where space is restricted.

Additional information

Z chain slides are often integrated with an XY stage. The unit is intended primarily for vertical operation with the load supported on the Z axis. For alternative orientations please contact our technical department. The Z chain slide can be motorised with the stepper motor shift.
