Boxway Air Slides
•New Way® New Way® boxway air slides are the organization's original integrated slide-and-guide assembly. These slides combine an accurate guide with an air slide ready-fit for installation. This provides you with the convenience of an integrated guide-and-bearing system.
•These slides have a straightness of motion and dynamic response an order-of-magnitude better than conventional rolling element bearings. New Way boxway air slides provide a local straightness (in X and Z) of 250 nanometers (0.25 microns) per 25mm travel (10 micro inches per inch), and a maximum error (global) of 2 microns per 1000mm travel (80 micro inches per yard).
•The guidebar for the boxway can be end-supported, or continuously-supported (preventing the sag inherent in long span end-supported configurations). Featuring a low profile linear track, and a slightly wider stage than the New Way dovetail, the boxway also provides the largest load-carrying capacity and the longest travel length of all the options in the New Way line of assemblies.
•In addition to the standard boxway product line (shown), custom continuously-supported air slide assemblies are also available.
