The 5217 Radial Slide is a medium duty, partial extension telescopic slide (60-114Kg/pair) suitable for a wide range of applications. At 550mm 1 pair has a load capacity of 108Kg with 318mm of travel, making it ideal for rugged casing and seating applications.
Aluminium Radial Slides have been using a unique crossed roller bearing system which make full length contact in 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 a die spring absorber 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 5217 slide can be extended to 75% of the closed length with minimal play and slight loss of loading.
The 5217 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 5217 is stocked across all key lengths. OEM quantities are manufactured to order. Please allow 4 weeks for delivery unless subscribed to our stock-holding programme.
