drylin® XY linear tables

XY-tables enable the horizontal movement of automated machines such as assembly robots in production plants, milling tables or drilling tables. Robotic arms and other automated machines have limited range of motion while their bases remain fixed; XY-tables allow these bases to move horizontally in the X and Y directions. Also known as cross slides, these XY-tables are both manual and motorised positioning tables with linear motion based on bearings set in motion by a drive mechanism. Typically, the drive is implemented by a linear motor or a hand wheel. XY-tables are designed to enable powerful positioning along multiple axes.
