The 7050 slide is part of the new ULTIO range of slides. Manufactured with state of the art production methods, ULTIO slides benefit from high quality materials including professionally drawn/rolled plated steel sections and stainless bearings to increase corrosion resistance. Our production capacity is market leading and we are in the process of implementing a global stock programme with our distribution partners. Due to investments in production capacity we can completely revolutionise the process which heavy duty, cold drawn steel slides have been manufactured in the past. The result is an excellent slide range which reflects the substantial investment we have made with our Group Company, Sliding Systems Asia. This means price downs for the end user and buy on line capability.
The 7050 slide is manufactured from professionally extruded cold drawn carbon steel grade C45, with industry standard zinc passivate plating. The quality of high grade steel profile is very important in achieving highly accurate ball races which allow a slight pre-load without lateral play between the beams. This quality of movement is usually associated with high end hardened steel slides at substantially higher price points. The bearings and ball cages are made from grade 304 stainless steel to improve corrosion resistance. Load rating at 600mm is 430kg per extended pair. All ULTIO slides are interchangeable with other European manufacturers whilst offering higher quality at more competitive price points.
Applications for the 7050 slides are military and rescue vehicle drawers, machine guarding, train battery boxes and door systems. Ultio 7050 slide weighs 9kg per metre.
The 7050 slide is tested at 20,000 operational cycles, with the slides spaced 1000mm apart. At 550mm length, with full extension and SWL loading of 420kg, the slides deflect 12mm. Tested to 500kg loading on 1,000 cycles, the deflection increases to 14mm. Deflection is the measurement of drop taken at the full extension of the slides and influences the ease of operational forces to close and open the drawer. At 420kg loading the operational forces are less than 15kg. At 500kg loading this increases to 25-30kg. During both tests, the drawer was stable without any side load movement or damage to the raceways, due to the high grade of steel used in the construction of the beams.
