      Hi all, I need some help. I am designing a cutting fixture & I need a slide that can travel 32" and has a digital read-out in inches.
      I can get a metric one form a company called Igus, but they don't do in imperial one, it doesn't need to be super accurate as it is used with a cut-off saw.
      I have tried using Google but have not found one.

      Thanks in advance

      Les

      Slide with readout options

      Try contacting ProScale www.proscale.com - they have a slide with an integrated digital readout system - their Model 580. Or, for a cutoff saw, you might want to use their stop and fence turnkey systems: ProStop or Digi-Stop - depends on your exact requirements. Made in USA, shows decimal inches, fractional inches, and metric measurements, all battery powered.

      You can often find digital readouts in the used equipment world. Machine tools that are decommissioned for mechanical reasons may have fully functional readouts on them.
