What applications are manual slides suitable for?

  • fine adjustment of sensors
  • 3D measurement
  • centric adjustment of lateral guides
  • focusing of pilot lights

Standard connecting and assembly plates allow for easy multi directional axis combinations to be achieved. Whilst the domiLINE unit is set to a standard length, the length may be customised to suit individual requirements thus providing precision positioning. The unit consists of an outer and inner slide which contain two high-quality V2A guide shafts. High load ratings and positive friction coefficients are achievable thanks to the strong surface-hardened guide surfaces. Inductive switches may be easily installed from a carriage width of 80mm. The stroke is produced as an outcome of the difference in length between the inner and outer slides.

As a result of this motion control technology the manual adjuster could prove invaluable in a vast number of applications. So whatever the industry, our manual adjusters offer precision automation to give you the edge in today’s competitive business environment.

domiLINE Standard Adjusters

The IEF Werner range of standard manual adjusters is known as the domiLINE Manual Adjuster range. This adjustment slide system offers manufacturers the flexibility to combine virtually any axis configuration that their application needs, including X, XY, XYZ and XYZ rotary fields. Consequently manufacturers can use the domiLINE standard adjuster to achieve total flexibility.

Additionally we offer 4 standard slide widths within our domiLINE range:-

  • domiLINE 30: width = 30 mm, pitch = 0.5 mm
  •  domiLINE 50: width = 50 mm, pitch = 1 mm
  • domiLINE 80: width = 80 mm, pitch = 1 or 2 mm
  • domiLINE 120: width = 120 mm, pitch = 1 or 2 mm

The standard manual slides come complete with spindle, they are pre-assembled and are available in standard strokes or in customer-specific strokes
