Dovetail Slides

dove tail slides

Whether your end application is a special machine or an OEM product line, linear dovetail slides provide simple and cost effective precision movement and tooling positioning solutions for machine builders and users. Dovetail slides typically have a larger contact area compared to other style slide systems, providing a high stiffness and load bearing capacity.

Our linear dovetail slide assemblies are designed and built for smooth, accurate and long-life operation and can be preloaded with Gib adjustment for reduced end play. Both the base and saddle are made from close-grained cast iron which are properly normalized to minimize distortion. After assembly, the saddle and base are machined and ground parallel on top and bottom surfaces for a flat, accurate mounting surface, and may be easily drilled, tapped, or machined to accommodate specific mounting and fixturing requirements for your dovetail slides.

low profile dovetail slides

Low Profile Dovetail Slides

Low profile slides are useful for a range of applications where the load induced into the assembly is moderate and a compact design is essential.

High profile dovetail slides

High Profile Dovetail Slides

High profile slides are useful for applications where the nature of the work to be done requires a more rugged construction than the low profile slide assemblies. With a thicker saddle and base this slide achieves greater stability and capacity.
