Welker Electric SlidesIn keeping pace with sustainable manufacturing trends, Welker offers integrated electric actuated versions of its most popular products. Costs to operate electric components are a fraction of pneumatic when considering the actual expense of plant air compressors, hoses, valves, air filter/regulators, plus maintenance costs.
Pneumatic vs. Electric Slide Cost Comparison
Benefits of electric components:
- Minimizes ladder logic by eliminating valves and switches
- High force capacity
- Absolute encoders
- Offer greater efficiency
- High level of repeatability
- Precision multi-positioning
- Synchronized motion

R2 Rail SlideThe R2 Slide is the shortest and most narrow configuration available. Easily maintained (replaced) Kevlar shields protect rails from weld spatter.
NL3 Rail SlideNarrow rail slide for low profile applications. Easily maintained (replaced) Kevlar shields protect rails from weld spatter.
Unit includes auto-lube.
WL3 Rail SlideWide rail slide for low profile applications. Easily maintained (replaced) Kevlar shields protect rails from weld spatter. Optional auto-lube.
Electric VOSS SlideVOSS compliant components for Ford applications. Narrow and wide carriage styles. Optional auto-lube. 4000# capacity.
Extrusion SlideHeavy duty aluminum extrusion frame rail slide suitable for harsh environments. A single motor can drive one or two carriages. VFD or servo actuators. Multi-axis configurations available.
Part Presentation SlideElectric slides with positive lead screw drive, heavy duty extruded aluminum frames. Replaces feed conveyors at a fraction of the cost! Single carriage, independent dual carriage, and push/pull slaved configurations available.
Pusher/Puller SlideMounted to the floor, extrusion frame rail slide latches cart and pulls parts into working cell. Cart is returned to original position and released. Promotes operator safety! Also useful as an actuator for tool tray changers.
See video below.
Tool Tray ShuttleElectric actuators and absolute encoders for high repeatability. Carriage plates are machined to customer hole patterns and feature precision homing/lockout pins. A hard-plumbed manifold is available for easy access lubrication.
P5 Plane Bearing SlideWays are composite bearings, hard chrome shafts, double seals; no way covers are required. Lube free! Least expensive and most durable
X-Y Servo Shim SlideWelker Servo Shim maximizes tooling flexibility. Allows quick repositioning of components for build trend change. Single axis and double axis (shown) models.
