Whispah Linear Slide

The Whispah Linear Slide is designed to utilize the properties of LM76's Minute Man Linear Bearings series such as: low friction, high load capacity, speed of 400 SFM, shock absorption, self lubrication, zero absorption, low friction (0.09 to 0.12 C of F) and noiseless. The light weight Whispah Linear Slide is available in two sizes. The WSP 1 Twin Rail System features a 4.00 x 5.50 inch wide table with a bearing centerline to centerline measurement of 2.125 inches. For greater load and higher stability the WSP 2 Twin Rail System features a 6.00 x 7.00 inch wide table and a bearing centerline to centerline of 2.906.

The low profile Whispah 1 Linear slide can handles vertical loads (Co-ax) to 150 lbs and side loads (Co-rad) to 75 lbs. Whispah2 Linear slide can handles vertical loads (Co-ax) to 225 lbs and side loads (Co-rad) to 125 lbs. Both Whispah Linear slides are available in lengths to 120 inches. The precision aluminum two rail extrusion has a hardcoat finish and each rail is hollow to allow for a water or air line and wiring. Predrilled mounting holes are for integration into new or existing systems. There is room to mount a pneumatic cylinder or electro-mechanical linear actuator to operate the slide.

The two rail Whispah Linear Slide is useful for linear motion applications that must be non-contaminating to its environment such as medical equipment, pharmaceutical manufacturing systems and food processing equipment, or operate in harsh environments such as ceramic tile wet saws, welding systems, caustic wash downs and outdoor/all-weather applications.
