Velmex (Bloomfield, NY) offers the Parallel-Coupled BiSlide System for long traverses and larger loads. The system features two identical BiSlide assemblies coupled with a timing belt to drive synchronous operation. It can handle loads to 600 pounds and is available in standard lengths up to 80 inches. The assembly is available in both manual and motor-driven models. The motorized models feature a double shaft motor on one slide and a heavy-duty bearing assembly on the other slide. The manually operated versions have the bearing assembly on both slides.

The system can be configured as a 2- or 3-axis system, and can be combined with other assemblies to meet specific application requirements. Options include adapters, brackets, and couplers to connect slide systems to each other in XY configurations or to other assemblies.
