Linear Screw Actuators With Low-Profile Guide Rails: drylin® SLW

drylin® SLW/SAW are lead screw-driven actuators equipped with fully-supported guide rails, offering more rigidity and resistance to twisting than shaft-guided actuators, like our HTS product line.  They are high-performance, low-cost, low profile and highly flexible, and therefore are some of our most popular actuator series.

Benefits:

  • Lower cost than ball bearing actuators
  • Fully supported rails for torsion-resistance
  • Low-profile and low-weight
  • Grease-free & corrosion-resistant
  • Highly flexible, with many accessories and materials
  • Motors and drive controls available
Typical Applications:  Packaging machine format and lane adjustments, Lab machinery, CNC Machine Gantries
