The Heavy-Duty Slide 2 from Techno, Inc., New Hyde Park, NY, is constructed of single rigid aluminum extrusion and able to handle heavy cantilevered loads. It measures 225mm wide and is available in travels from 122 to 2,722mm (4.8 to 107.2in.), with a wraparound motor mounting kit that allows for longer travel with shorter overall lengths.

All models have four precision rails, four bearing blocks, home reference and end limit switches. They are available with inline or side-mounted stepper motors or servomotors. The 16mm anti-backlash ball screws are available with 2.5mm (1in.), 5mm (0.2in.), and 20mm (0.8in.) leads.
