Slide

 

in machine building, that part of a metalcutting machine tool or other machine designed to move a tool, workpiece, or subassembly of the machine in two, usually perpendicular, directions; it usually has two guide systems. Slides are classified as longitudinal, transverse, and swing types. Medium-sized machines have solid slides, and heavy machine tools use box-shaped hollow slides. SCh 15–32 cast (pig) iron is mostly used. The fixed metal beams on which machine subassemblies, such as electric motors, are moved during operation are also called slides.
