The DTSB-60 is a rugged slide fitted to extend fully front & rear, which has been designed for load maximisation from a small space envelope. Particularly suited to vehicle mounted equipment which has to be accessed from both sides of the chassis and bi-directional machine guarding, it also has a wide range of applications where torsional strength is paramount. A unique rocker system is fitted to hold and release the beams in sequence, so the slides operate as a pair from stowed position, through forward and back out through the rear.
The DTSB-60 is an extreme load/duty 100% extension slide (180-600 kg/pair). At 550mm, 1 pair has a travel of 550mm to the front and to the rear, with a load capacity of 550 kg. Constructed from cold drawn steel sections and precision milled ball tracks the DTSB telescopic slide has an excellent level of resistance to shock and vibration when supporting a dynamic load in the closed position. Accordingly, this slide is well suited to mounting on vehicles. This is a very strong compact slide, utilising the I beam format, which offers high resistance against axial and coaxial torque loading. Resulting in minimal deflection at full extension and low operating forces.
Additional product variations can be produced with bespoke closed lengths, extensions, mounting options, surface treatments and stainless ball bearings/cages. The DTSB-60 drawer slide may also be fitted in the minor axis (flat). However, the load capacity will be reduced by 60-80% of the stated loading.
We do not recommend standard DTSB slides on accurate robotic pick & place or high speed shuttles, without factory adaptation and customer in situ testing, prior to committing to production. The slides are limited to operational speeds of <0.3m/s. Our new Saibo TDB-43LK Robotic Bi-directional slide is designed for robotic pick & place and high speed shuttles, with operational speeds up to 0.8m/s. Interchangeable with other European manufacturers at substantially lower cost. Please follow this link for more details on the TDB-43LK and for global purchase
The production process is ISO9001-2015 accredited. Our steel telescopic slides are manufactured from cold drawn steel C45E+C in accordance with EN 10277. Laser cut ball cages are manufactured from zinc plated sheet metal, and the ball bearings are carbon steel C85 G100 in accordance with DIN 5401. Standard Professional Range steel slides are RoHS & REACH certified to withstand over 1,000 hours corrosion protection, until the appearance of red rust. This is due to the investment made in our own state of the art electrolytic alkaline zinc processing facility. Core steel C45 E+C, with a layer depth of 10-12 microns conforming to DIN EN ISO 9227 neutral salt spray testing. No white rust appearance within 120 hours. No red rust within 1,032 hours.
An individual slide weighs 10.36 kg per metre.
