Completely Modular and Ultra-Efficient

Modular and configurable down to the last detail: MSC mini slides

The new generation of MSC mini slides from Rexroth Pneumatics can be configured to perfectly fit your requirements.

The MSC series mini slides have a compact design, require minimal installation space and can be optimally configured for virtually any automated handling task. The new generation of mini slides offers a multitude of variants and equipment details.

Its numerous configuration options make the mini slide a truly universal handling component. Diameter, stroke length, performance of the guiding, number of pistons, and air connections are all easy to define with the intuitive configurator, which can also be used to select the type of cushioning, end position lock, or accessories. Custom-configured for specific applications, the mini slides are an efficient component for any handling task.

With the special Easy-2-Combine interface, the mini slides can be combined with other components in a handling system as required, without the need for additional mounting plates. Its direct connection to rotary modules, rodless cylinders, and further slide units or grippers makes the MSC series ideal for various tasks in many different industries, especially in the areas of automation and handling.

The MSC's small cross-section allows for especially compact machine designs. Depending on the installation situation, sensors, stroke setting, and air connections can be installed on both sides. The symmetrical design also enables parallel mounting of two mini slides. The pre-tensioned guide system without play and one-piece slide table offers maximum stability and reliable precision with minimal tolerance values – even for high torque absorption and load capacities.
