Original Press Release:
Full 100% Extension Telescoping Rails Available from LM76 features Smooth Sliding!
E. Longmeadow, MA – LM76 has added a new series of 100% Extension Rails to their extensive product line of linear motion components and complete linear motion systems. The exclusive distributor of SAIBO Linear Motion Systems in the US, LM76, is now offering the SAIBO TDB28 and TDB 43 series of Telescoping Extension Rails. Stroke lengths (extension) are 100% of the length of the assembly. The TDB28 series of Telescoping Extension Rails consists of 14 rails with stroke lengths from 148 mm (5.827 in) to 1202 mm (47.323 in.) and supporting loads from 472 N (106 lbs) to 1018 N (229 lbs) when two rails are mounted in parallel and the load is uniformly distributed between the rails. The TDB43 series of Telescoping Extension Rails consists of 23 rails with stroke lengths from 246 mm (9.685 in) to 2026 mm (79.764 in.) and supporting loads from 1212 N (272 lbs) to 2414 N (543 lbs) when two rails are mounted in parallel and the load is uniformly distributed between the rails.
The TDB28 and TDP43 Telescoping Extension Rails are created using a "C" shaped external rail and an internal slider. Two rows of steel ball bearings (one on the top and bottom of the slider) travel in ball cages on hardened "V" shaped ways with four points of contact. Assembled with a zero clearance, these compact, precision, smooth sliding rails are designed for applications such as: Delicate parts transfer, assembly, testing, laser machining and drilling wafer handling, rail and rack systems for components in autonomous vehicles, aircraft, trains, ships, and trucks.
These industry standard 100% Fulll Extension Rails are ideal for use in new and existing applications. Both the TDB28 and TDB43 100% Full Extension Rails have a maximum working speed of 0.8 m/sec. (xxx in/sec ) and have an operating temperature range of -20OC (-20OF) to 120OC (-20OF). For complete information on the assembly, loads, and stroke lengths for each in these series and additional details consult the factory.
LM76 also manufacturers a broad variety of FDA & USDA compliant bearings and shafting, in inch sizes of .25 inches to 1.5 inches, and a FDA & USDA compliant profile rail and slide system that can easily be integrated into new and existing applications. The bearing options include: Self-lubricating FDA & USDA compliant Teflon® composite bearings in a 304 stainless steel shell, and lower cost bearings with a ceramic coated shell and FDA & USDA compliant liner. Bearings are available in closed and open configurations, and are drop-in replacements for all inch sized linear ball bearings.
Founded in 1976, LM76 has been a leading designer/manufacturer of linear bearings, slides and linear motion systems. LM76 is renowned for its industry leading Minuteman Teflon® Composite linear bearings. LM76 is a leading supplier of precision linear shafting: RC60, 300 Series Stainless Steel, and ceramic coated aluminum shafting. LM76 also offers several FDA/USDA compliant linear bearings and slides for the food processing, pharmaceutical, medical, and packaging industries.
