The 8027 & 8028 products are now discontinued on production, with only reducing stock remaining. For new projects we recommend replacement slide 6526 from our own manufactured Radial Range.
The 8027 slide is part of the new ULTIO range of slides. Manufactured with state of the art production methods, ULTIO slides benefit from quality materials including professionally extruded high strength alloy sections. The movement is incredibly smooth and almost silent.
The 8027 slide is corrosion resistant. The ball cages, bearings and components are manufactured from grade 304 stainless steel. This makes it the ideal choice for fire truck builders who demand light weight and corrosion free operation in constant wet conditions. The aluminium sections are aircraft grade 7005 with a T53 temper strength comparable to carbon steel. Alloy 7005 is heavily utilised by the aircraft and ordnance industries due to its superior strength. There are no corrosive parts used in the manufacture and it is suitable for wash down conditions. Load rating at 600mm is 330kg per extended pair. All ULTIO slides are interchangeable with other European manufacturers whilst offering higher quality at more competitive price points.
The slide has been designed specifically to replace heavy steel slides in the manufacture of fire trucks. The weight saving and non-corrosive properties are demanded by builders and brigades. Unlike other slide manufacturers, our 8027 slide benefits from extremely high grade sections, so stainless steel bearings can operate within the ball tracks and provide the same strength as the steel predecessors. We do not use plastic ball bearings in the manufacture of our heavy duty slides, due to premature damage caused by temperature fluctuations. The slide has an exceptionally smooth action with absolutely no bearing play.
Applications for the 8027 slides are military and rescue vehicle drawers, aircraft seating, shipborne racking and ATMs. It is interchangeable with the steel 7050 slide, offering more choice to the end user. Ultio 8027 slide weighs 4kg per metre. Slide travel is 100% of the closed length = stated extension +15mm. Please enquire about over extensions up to 120%.
The 8027 slide is tested at 20,000 operational cycles, with the slides spaced 1000mm apart. At 550mm length, with full extension and SWL loading of 320kg, the slides deflect 10mm. Tested to 400kg loading on 1,000 cycles, the deflection increases to 16mm. 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 320kg loading the operational forces are less than 10kg. At 400kg loading this increases to 16-20kg. During both tests, the drawer was stable without any side load movement or damage to the raceways, due to the high grade of alloy used in the construction of the beams.
