Pick and Place Ball Slides

EZP Series

Rugged Slides Designed for Pick and Place Machines’ Demanding Accuracy and Reliability Requirements

The EZP Series of pick and place pneumatic linear slides are built tough to keep your pick and place equipment running reliably without sacrificing accuracy. Delivering combined horizontal and vertical motion, the EZP Series’ integrated and sealed linear ball bearings provide near play-free operation to ensure good precision. The pairs of bearings are housed in the high-strength aluminum end caps, and the space between them increases with the stroke lengths to provide them higher load capacities. The slides’ rugged design includes a hard-coated aluminum cylinder tube, hard chrome-plated 303 stainless steel piston rod and a choice of case hardened and ground or stainless steel guide shaft. Some models also offer three positions on one or both of the slides.

Technical Advantages
  • Rugged, aluminum cylinders and sealed linear ball bearings provide near play-free operation.
  • Bearings in the EZP pick and place units are housed in the cylinder end caps. As the stroke increases, the pairs of bearings become spaced further apart, increasing bearing load capacity.
  • Certain models offer an option of three positions on one or both of the slides.
  • EZP slides are available with a transition plate or toolbar that will mount directly to SPG Series parallel grippers.
