DS4/6 Series

These modular positioning tables provide the design flexibility and options to suit a wide variety of demanding, high-precision positioning applications. An innovative magnetic cover strip protects the entire length of the screw and linear bearing system, providing for operator safety while sealing out contamination. The DS4/6 series is available in single- and multi-axis configurations including XY, XZ, XYZ and Cartesian arrangements.
