Suhner’s feed slide program is based on a modular design concept and includes four basic slide sizes. Within the four size classes, there are a number of different stroke lengths and up to four different feed options such as pneumatic feed with external hydraulic brake cylinder, with or without peck-feed function; pneumatic feed with integrated brake cylinder, which allows feed control over the entire stroke length; hydraulic for higher feed forces; and a CNC-controlled, servo motor and pre-loaded nut and ballscrew. 

There are additional options such as central lubrication for right or left hand slide lubrication, cam rail and switch assembly including telescopic or bellow type way covers. According to the company, this standard program is adaptable anytime project specific requirements change, such as stroke length or a different kind of feed and many more.

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
