Stelron Cam Slide


The STELRON CAM SLIDE converts rotational motion from an input shaft to controlled "in line" movement of an end plate(s) attached to linear moving output shafts. Due to the integral construction, it eliminates the need for separate cams, linkages and other devices for producing a movement from a remote source.

The "cam Slide" consists of two hardened cams mounted on the input shaft, each acting on separate rollers attached to the carriage of the reciprocating assembly. The cams provide positive constraint at all times to the "in line" moving parts. The reciprocating assembly moves on linear ball bearings mounted in a housing which contains all the moving parts. All contact surfaces are hardened and roll on anti-friction bearings to reduce friction and wear to a minimum. The housing is sealed to exclude foreign matter and retain lubrication.

APPLICATION:

The Stelron "Cam Slide" may be adapted to any machine motion which requires straight line movement of parts. The reciprocating assembly moves on linear ball bearings mounted in a housing which contains all the moving parts. All contact surfaces are hardened and roll on anti-friction bearings to reduce friction and wear to a minimum. The housing is sealed to exclude foreign matter and retain lubrication.

SPRING OPTION:

The "Cam Slide" can also be supplied with a spring operated "out" motion. This feature protects tooling in case of jams and interference's.

SPECIAL STROKES/SEQUENCES:

The "Cam Slide" is offered in a large variety of standard movements. However, variations in strokes, sequence, and shaft extensions are available at additional cost.

REVERSED SEQUENCES:

The various cam angles of "out" dwell and "in" dwell may be reversed, as a standard option.

ENGINEERING DATA:

The "Cam Slide" is produced in five size and available in a large variety of standard strokes and sequences. Since anti-friction bearings are used throughout, cam pressure angles, which normally would be considered excessive, are used. However, to avoid undercutting the cams, certain limitations on the cam angles and strokes are available and should not be exceeded.
