VST linear slides by MK Technology, also called as linear modules, are available in two sizes based on aluminium profiles: 50×50 and 100×100 mm.
The drive from the knob is transferred onto a trapezoidal screw and a POM nut. The screw mechanism is fully shielded. Trucks have factory-made mounting holes and screw clamps for secure locking.
Apart from the manual drive, a gear motor can be used. Depending on the equipment, the modules can indicate the movement of the truck by means of a rotary scale or a mechanical counter with an accuracy of 0.05 mm. Thanks to their mounting accessories, the guides are suitable for two-axis systems. In addition, each guide can be equipped with two trucks working in parallel or in opposite directions.
Features of the VST slides:
high static load capacity
maintenance-free and easy to clean – no need for lubrication
