The OWST-48 is a rugged slide fitted to extend partially front & rear, which has been designed for load maximisation from a small space envelope. Particularly suited to bi-directional aerospace seating and military rugged keyboards, where access is required front and rear. It has a wide range of applications where torsional strength is paramount. OWST slides can be mounted to operate as a pair from a stowed position when fully extended. This provides 100% full travel as the inner beam traverses through the central position and back out to the rear. The datasheet states this dual extension equal to the slide’s closed length. However, typical usage is 50% travel to the front and rear from the central position when closed.
The OWST-48 is an extreme load/duty 50% extension slide (80-280 kg/pair). At 550mm, 1 pair has a travel of 275mm in each direction, with a load capacity of 280 kg. Constructed from cold drawn steel sections and precision milled ball tracks, the OWST-48 telescopic slide has a excellent level of resistance to shock and vibration when supporting a static load in the closed position. Accordingly this drawer runner is well suited to mounting within vehicles. This telescopic slide offers a compact design for the high load capacity. The slide also has good resistance to applied loads when in the extended position making it an excellent choice for dynamic applications and manually operated systems.
The OWST-48 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. It can be supplied with a 70% extension which will reduce the load slightly. Please consult our sales engineers for this no cost option. We do not recommend standard OWST 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
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 3.58 kg per metre.
