New Modular Feed Slide Assembly Program from SUHNER

Modular slide assembly program integrates high rigidity for demanding applications in precision and quality.

SUHNER has redesigned the entire precision feed slide program with an emphasis on product performance and cost benefits to the customer. Once again, SUHNER delivered on this promise with an impressive number of design improvements such as rigidity and compact design, including a variety of optional slide assembly features and accessories.

The SUHNER feed slide program is based on a modular design concept and includes four basic slide sizes. Within the four size classes, there are a number of different stroke lengths
(see table 1) and up to four different feed options such as:

  • pneumatic feed with external hydraulic brake cylinder, with or without peck-feed function
  • pneumatic feed with integrated brake cylinder which allows feed control over the entire stroke length
  • Hydraulic for higher feed forces
  • CNC-controlled, servo motor and pre-loaded nut & ball screw

This standard program is adaptable anytime project specific requirements change, for example:
Stroke length or a different kind of feed and many more.
