Dovetail slides provide simple and cost effective solutions for precise movement and tooling positioning. They provide solutions for machine builders and users, whether your end application is a special machine or an OEM product line. Gilman dovetail slide assemblies are designed and built to promote smooth, accurate and long-life operation. Dovetail slides typically have a larger contact area compared to other style slide systems, providing a high stiffness and load bearing capacity. Dovetail slides can be preloaded with Gib adjustment for reduced end play. Both the base and saddle are made from close-grained cast iron which are properly normalized to minimize distortion. After assembly, the saddle and base are machined and ground parallel on top and bottom surfaces for a flat, accurate mounting surface, and may be easily drilled, tapped, or machined to accommodate specific mounting and fixturing requirements for your dovetail slides.
