Sealed Linear Stage

Our SLS sealed linear stages have just become more versatile with the introduction of a compact model intended for lighter loads.

The SLS Light measures just 80 x 120-mm, or 60-mm less than our SLS Medium model. The Light version has maximum dynamic payloads of 15 kg for the direct drive linear motor variation and 30 kg for the ball screw version—versus 30 and 100 kg for the comparable SLS Medium models.

Join us at the IMTS Show's Motion Drive and Automation Conference for a presentation on a new motion control system that delivers speed and precision to 3D printing, CNC and metrology applications. Bell-Everman founder Mike Everman will deliver the presentation—called Inertially Optimized Motion Control System Drives New 3D Printertoday, Tuesday, September 9th at 3:10 in McCormick West, Room W190.

We've just made it easier to configure our new SLS Sealed Linear Stages. Our new online configuration tool allows you to select travel length, drive options and accessories in minutes. And if you're ready for a quote, you can send your configuration to our applications engineering team. We'll have a price back to you within 24 hours.


Linear stages in industrial settings often suffer from contamination problems. As manufacturing debris, particulate or liquid contaminants work their way into the stage, they can abrade or gum up the drive mechanism and bearings. Our new SLS Sealed Linear Stage keeps contamination outside the stage housing.
