Mate type to allow travel between two surfaces?

Let's say I've got a sub assembly that is able to slide back and forth.  Example of shuttling something in and out of a press.

 

If I add a limit mate, I have to input the exact values that I want it to travel, from zero to whatever distance.

 

Is there a mate type that I can add in the main assembly so the component will be allowed to travel between other components?  I have two hard stops, one for each end of the travel.  Can I make it slide between them?

 

Thanks.
