FlexFit is a modular linear rail system which uses stainless steel 304 (1.4301) carriers in a choice of either 430 (1.4016) stainless or BZP steel pre-drilled rails. Carriers are supplied pre-set ready for immediate use
FlexFit 1529 rail is available in lengths stocked to 2,400mm. The carriers have a 42kg or 60kg load capacity and there is no limit to how many are fitted to each rail. The carriers are available in 3 bearing format as standard, with a longer 5 bearing version to provide maximum stability.
The FlexFit 1529 system is tested to 100,000m travel with a 42kg load under normal conditions and the carriers show no sign of play throughout the service life. The stainless steel rails 1529S and 1537S can be supplied in single lengths up to 3,994mm. Please contact us for minimum batch quantities.
The rails are supplied in zinc plated steel or stainless 430 (1.4016). The carriers are supplied only in stainless steel and are interchangeable. There are no plastic parts used in this system, so it is suitable for high temperature environments. Unlike other systems, the rails can have customer specific mounting options and hole patterns subject to minimum order quantities.
Type 430 stainless steel has good corrosion resistance to a large variety of media including nitric acid and some organic acids. The corrosion resistance of type 430 is optimal when it has a highly polished surface. As with other ferritic grades, resistance to stress corrosion cracking is very high. Being ferritic, the 430 rail will have magnetic properties not associated with grade 304.
FlexFit is a highly economical solution for low to medium load linear motion. The steel rails and stainless carriers are now shipped out same day despatch.
