The HLD60 is available in 3 versions: HLD60 with internal rollers, HLD60 with single external rail and HLD60 with dual external rails. In order to see a comparison chart of all the HLD60 actuators, please click here.
The HLD60 is available in a standard commercial grade and a high precision grade. The data shown below is for the standard commercial grade. It demonstrates that the HLD60 is comparable to a ball screw actuator in accuracy but with an important difference which is that the HLD60 is available with zero backlash inherent gear reduction built in.
Unlike conventional ball screw actuators, the HLD60 accuracy extends to travel lengths from 100mm to 3.3 meters as a standard product. The cost however, is far lower than commercial grade ball screws for travel in excess of 600 mm.
The HLD60 is commonly used instead of regular belt slides because it is a low cost system due to the elimination of expensive gear reduction. The HLD60 reduction is built in.
