Mini slides with pneumatic cushioning
2nd Quarter 2015, Pneumatic systems & components


Aventics is the first manufacturer to supply mini slides with maintenance-friendly pneumatic cushioning. The MSC is a universal handling component for all handling tasks, including pick-and-place applications. Pneumatic cushioning in mini slides is unprecedented on the market. It works with the elastic cushioning elements and hydraulic shock absorbers, giving gentle operation and optimal machine lifecycles. It has the same service life as the piston drive and therefore the same maintenance intervals. Hydraulic shock absorbers can be replaced without readjusting the stroke, reducing machine downtime. The elastic cushioning elements are maintenance-free.

This new generation of mini slides allows users to individualise a product and determine the desired features online to achieve the required performance. The configuration generates complete documentation, including CAD files, parts lists, own material number and price information.

The MSC mini slide’s functional design allows for flexible implementation. The symmetrical layout ensures planning flexibility – sensors can be installed or stroke adjustments made on both sides, depending on the situation. This enables the parallel assembly of two mini slides and combination with additional handling system components. Rotary modules, rodless cylinders, additional slide units, or grippers can be integrated without the need for extra mounting plates.

The product has high bearing capacity, drive force, and functionality within a small cross-section. The pre-tensioned guide system and one-piece slide table offer maximum stability and reliable precision with minimal tolerance values, even with high torque absorption and load capacities. The symmetrically operating double piston system of the slide unit provides an exceptional load bearing capacity.
