Danaher Motion's Modular IDC DS4 positioning table designed to satisfy demanding single and Multi-Axis application requirements. The most versatile line of IDC positioning tables available to date.

WOOD DALE, IL – Danaher Motion introduces IDC DS4 Precision Positioning Tables. DS4 tables offer precision performance, industrial durability and maximum configuration flexibility at commercial-grade prices. They feature the unique IDEAL-SEAL system for properly tensioned seal strips, which provides for maximum seal strip life and easy access to the table interior for mounting and maintenance. The IDEAL-SEAL eliminates the need for springs and other small hardware that can be easily lost, and eliminates exposure to the troublesome sharp edges of similar seal strip designs.

“IDC DS4 tables offer an easily configurable modular design with option and accessory sets that include a variety of motor mounting orientations, motor sizes and types, ballscrew leads, coupling types and sizes, encoder feedback options, limit/home sensor types, and shaft brakes, among others,” says David Kosewski, Product Manager. “The result is a rugged and reliable precision table, with travel lengths from 50 to 600mm, that can be customized to meet a wide range of specific precision-grade application requirements at commercial-grade positioning table prices. The compact cross-section and economical price point of the DS4 make it an excellent choice in Factory Automation, Life Science, Automotive, Packaging, and Semiconductor applications.”

Additional features include:
* Precision ballscrew drive with 5mm and 10mm leads for high speed and efficiency with excellent repeatability and accuracy; Standard bi-directional repeatability is +/- 3 microns, with a Precision Grade version that is repeatable to +/- 1.3 microns

* High efficiency ballscrew minimizes torque required to drive the load

* Low profile shuttle carriage accepts direct mounting of a second DS4 for XY configurations

* Proven magnetic stainless steel seal strip technology effectively seals internal components from contaminants

* T-slots for mounting the DS4 and attaching options and accessories

* Single-piece carriage for maximum stiffness

* Long bearing modules for rigidity, accuracy and smooth, precise motion

* Precision-machined aluminum base reduces angular positioning errors

* Stainless steel square rails for long life in harsh environments

* Base unit design that accepts various inline and parallel motor mounting options
