Four point contact and two row raceway design compact linear slides are just one of the many linear motion slides offered by precision engineered components specialist, Ondrives Ltd of Chesterfield.
They are a precision unit offered in five different sizes and lengths range from 100mm at the smallest end right up 3000mm on some sizes. There is a range of different carriages to choose from in order to aid the customer's selection process and these can be a flanged, short or long carriage mounting from the lower side to a flange style complete with tapped holes and a block design without the flange but encompassing tapped holes where appropriate. As standard, the slides & carriages are made from hardened carbon steel with the end plates in synthetic resin, end seals made of rubber and the grease nipples in brass, but sizes 15 to 30 are also available in stainless steel - please ask sales for details.
The four point contact offers high load capacities with a maximum speed of 3m/sec and maximum operating temperature of 100ºC constant. Special requests can also be taken for butt joining rails, matched sets, higher accuracy models, under seals, end seals, scrapers, bellows and preloading. It is recommended customers re-grease every 6 months under general use and every 3 months when in daily use. The carriages and tracks are produced to suit each individual set, so it is important customers order the correct number of carriages required per track.
