Designed for dispensing, inspection, pick and place and parts transfer applications, the Voyager Series VB1 slide features a 50-mm wide steel-reinforced HTD timing belt drive. This drive allows greater shear strength and smaller unit pressure per tooth, with a greater area of contact through the drive's deep curvilinear profile. This profile has more nonslip operation than a traditional trapezoidal tooth profile. Available in stainless steel, the slide has lengths up to 3m and speeds up to 5 m/sec, and can be assembled to make 2- and 3-axis systems. They come in 15 different standard travels from 200 to 3,000 mm, but custom travels up to 5,700 mm are available. It can be configured with no motor, or several motor types, including NEMA 23 and 34 steppers and servos. It has its own belt to keep dirt and debris away from the carriage and rail.
