Manually driven, linear positioners
16 December 2008
MISUMI has recently added a number of linear units with manual drive for applications in which no repetition frequency is required, or the units only need to be repositioned infrequently, or occasionally readjusted. The assembly consists of an extruded aluminium base (strength class T5) in which the slide is driven by a handwheel via an acme screw drive.
This is available in three variants: two are equipped with a plastic hand-wheel, of which one is retractable, and the third has a spoked handwheel made of metal. The units can be assembled to enable both vertical and horizontal motion. Insertion slots to receive the respective positioning scales are provided on the sides and bottom of the base. The spindle can be locked in place with the aid of indicator collars.
