Meticulously-engineered pneumatic, hydraulic, manual and motorized linear stages for ultra-smooth movement and hyper-accurate positioning.
Gilman’s precision linear stages — also referred to as translation stages or machine slides — are known internationally for their durability and dependability. Trusted across a wide range of industries (for example, you can find Gilman slides in the medical, metrology, aerospace and automotive testing industries, just to name a few), these manual and motorized stages are designed to tackle both low- and high-speed applications, as well as cycle applications. They’re also relied upon for their accuracy, dampening and rigidity – especially when positioning is important. Gilman designs and manufacture three types of linear motion slides: dovetail, linear guide and hardened box way.
