Design a linear slide (also called a linear stage). This is very similar to the Z-axis of several CNC machines. Consists of 2 steel rails and a leadscrew in between the two rails. Then it has a carriage (or stage) that slides on the rails. Pillow block linear bearings slide on the two steel rails. The pillow block bearings are fastened to a mounting plate. The leadscrew nut is fastened to the mounting plate as well. I need you to keep cost of parts in mind when designing and get quotes on different parts to see the tradeoffs. The goal is to create a solid design but to minimize cost. This slide should work as a standalone slide (single axis) or be able to mount a 2nd identical axis onto this one to create a 2-axis. So the baseplate of one axis can mount to the stage mounting plate of the other axis (same hole pattern). I attached a few pictures of examples similar to what I am looking for.
