Festo launches market’s most compact slide
Festo takes compact pneumatic drives to a higher level with the introduction of the industry’s most compact slide unit – the DGST. It is being launched together with a new range of compact cylinders and guided cylinders to provide the ideal drive combination for compact assembly systems.
DGST precision mini-slides feature an integrated guide unit driven by a pneumatic cylinder. In addition to standard cylinders they provide increased performance and reliability in applications which require a smooth, precision guided, non-rotating platform ideal for the mounting of tooling or other actuators. The guidance is particularly important where side or pressing/insertion loads are present. A good mini-slide is a combination of compactness, precision, accuracy and reliability.
The innovative DGST mini-slide is said to be the shortest slide on the market. It is available in a twin piston design with diameters of 6–25mm and stroke lengths of 10–200mm.
