DLT Linear Thruster Slides are fabricated with precision manufactured shafts and incorporate preloaded linear ball bushing for
a robust guided air cylinder with excellent linear motion control. Shock absorbers and precision stop blocks create pneumatic linear motion
with extreme accuracy and repeatability. Stroke lengths of 25 to 150 mm (.0984 to 5.906") with a force range from 89 to 275 N (20 to 62 lbs).
DLT Thruster Slides, by Robohand, are internally powered to reduce size requirements and can be utilized in many industrial, R&D, lab, production and quality
inspection applications from single direction to complex X-Y-Z motion. These pneumatic automation components are used in typical Pick-N-Place
applications and can handle small to large objects. Productivity improvements and cost reduction of repetitive task can be automated in some of the
following applications: assembly; escapements; in-line directional changes; transfer of objects with precision movements. The modular design, Direct Connect Technology,
allows the addition of DRF Rrotary Actuators and pneumatic grippers with out the need of adapter plates for additional savings through fast assembly
and reduced machining time.
Pneumatic linear motion components are double acting air cylinders that require a dry air supply with filtering to 40 microns or better. For
best control of pneumatic components, flow control valves (regulating out) should be installed to regulate the speed of the device. Position sensors
can easily be added to motion components to detect the end of travel positions of the slides, they are the standard method of communication with the
PLC and are available in inductive or magneto resistive sensing styles and come in both PNP or NPN sourcing signals.
Omega stocks many styles of Robohand Grippers that can be used with the DLT series linear actuator slides. To learn more about pneumatic grippers, view the Technical Reference Article
