The 1018 Radial Slide is a heavy duty full and over extension telescopic slide (20-78Kg/pair) suitable for a wide range of applications. At 550mm 1 pair has a load capacity of 57Kg with 665mm of over-travel, making it ideal for ATM manufacture. The slide has a very slim profile, ideal for 19'' military/naval racking or airborne rugged casing requiring a high shock resistance to weight ratio.
Aluminium Radial Slides utilise a unique crossed roller bearing system which makes full length contact within the ball race and eradicates bearing indentation (brinelling) and migration. This is a very rugged slide and, due to the unique roller design, outperforms similar ball bearing based products. The rear stop is fitted with die spring absorbers to cushion and protect when subject to shock loading.
Cross roller bearings are best suited to applications like aircraft seating where offset loads and point contact stresses cause significant indentation in the ball race and subsequent slide failure. However, due to the rigidity of the slides, there is no play in the beams and this allows for deflection free extension.
The larger profiles can take considerable loading and with the option of up to 130% extension, are rigid enough support emergency truck drawers & pump carriers to 4000N. The benefit also being that the slides offer a considerable weight saving to steel and are non-corrosive. Thus, negating the need to specify expensive, full stainless steel sections. These work well with our non-corrosive handles, locks and tilting drawers.
The 1018 Radial Slide is manufactured from 6005a aluminium with the bearing races milled for tolerance. The finish is self-colour anodization, however there are various options. The bearings are hardened steel and chromed rods.
Prices are per single slide. Loadings are given per extended pair. There are two slides per pair. The 1018 is manufactured to order. Please allow 4 weeks for delivery, unless subscribed to our stockholding programme.
