What are V-Slot Actuators?
V-Slot linear actuators are modular building blocks for your machine ideas!
OpenBuilds™ Parts are now available in many easy to use and share formats!

Thank you and all the best with your builds!
They are made up of OpenBuilds V-Slot Aluminum Extrusion, a Mini-V Gantry System, and 2 End Mounts. This creates a low profile, high speed, belt driven linear actuator.
The V-Slot actuators are unique because the End Mounts contain mounting holes on both the back and bottom that allow connections to the Mini V Gantry Plate as well as V-Slot extrusion.
V-Slot's linear actuator easily and quickly allows creating mechanical assembly's and motion control systems for just about any type of platform you can imagine!
Once the V-Slot Linear Actuators are assembled, you connect them together to create the machine design of your choice.
-Different pulley sizes can be used.
-The End Mounts are interchangeable.
They can be used as either the motor mount side or the idler pulley side.
-The belt is fed through the plate on each side and crimped back onto itself for secure mounting.
-The belt can be tensioned by moving either End Mount.
