The GB Series block-style thruster slide combines a long list of features and options with durability. Its bearing block features anodized aluminum construction and includes a repairable machined-in air cylinder along with guide shaft bearings whose high performance composite material resists corrosion, moisture and temperatures up to 325° F for long cycle life while providing high load capacity and low friction. The GB Series is available in ⅜, ½ and ¾-inch bores and strokes from ½ to 10 inches. In fact, no other block style slide in the industry offers longer strokes.
The thruster slide is designed for mounting flexibility thanks to bottom, side and rear mounting holes, top and side ports and an interchangeable bolt pattern. The toolbar offers top, front and bottom mounting holes, and its slightly narrower size allows side mounting clearance between the toolbar and mounting surface. Optional round profile sensors come with surge suppression, polarity protection, LED indicator and extremely fast switching speeds. A wide range of options makes the GB Series highly versatile.
