The right equipment can mean all the difference when trying to produce a particular product for your clients. While slides are commonly used in many machining situations, a Dovetail slide could be a better fit for some of your company’s processes.

When it comes to making dovetail slides, it’s not a one-size-fits-all situation, either. There are variations of the dovetail slide, such as low-section, high-section, ND-section and DC-section slides.

A standard DC section slide comes in inch increments, anywhere from 2” to 20” widths, lengths up to 100”.

Low-section and high-section follow more standard specifications and are often a stocked item available for a cheaper cost, he said.
