E. Longmeadow, Mass. – The new Whispah™ Linear Slide from LM76 is a low-cost, quiet linear slide designed to use the properties of LM76’s Minute Man Linear Bearings series such as low friction, high load capacity, high speed (400 sfm), shock absorption, self lubrication, zero absorption, and low coefficient of friction (0.09 to 0.12).
The light weight Whispah Linear Slide is available in two sizes. The WSP 1 Twin Rail System features a 4.00 in. long x 5.50 in. wide table with a bearing centerline to centerline measurement of 2.125 in. For greater load and higher stability, the WSP 2 Twin Rail System features a 6.00 long x 7.00 in. wide table and a bearing centerline to centerline of 2.906 in.
The low profile Whispah 1 Linear Slide can handle vertical loads to 150 lbs and side loads to 75 lbs. Whispah 2 Linear Slide can handles vertical loads to 225 lbs and side loads to 125 lbs. Both Whispah Linear Slides are available in lengths to 120 in. The precision aluminum two-rail extrusion has a Hardcoat finish for long life, and each rail is hollow to allow for a water or air line and wiring. Predrilled mounting holes make integration into new or existing systems fast and easy. There is also room to easily mount a pneumatic cylinder or electro-mechanical linear actuator to operate the slide.
The stable two-rail Whispah Linear Slide is ideal for linear motion applications in non-contaminating environments 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.
