The TSRT-80 is the bi-directional variant of the standard TSR slide. Unlike DTSB 'hold and release rocker design', the beams are not controlled throughout the full traverse from front to rear. Our precise milling of the ball tracks and laser cut cages provide quality movement where the beams can operate bi-directionally without sequencing. A more economical design, which allows for a narrower beam profile between chassis and drawer in static applications, without the expense of machined components associated with DTSB slides.
TSRT slides are designed for static mounting within cabinets, which require access from both sides: Shop/pharmacy displays, electronic racking and thru-wall dispensing drawers. We do not recommend fitting TSRT on any vehicular motion application, where shock and vibration can displace the beams, migrating freely out of position. DTSB slides are more suited in this function.
The TSRT-80 is an extreme load/duty 100% extension slide (140-435 kg/pair). At 550mm, 1 pair has a travel of 550mm to the front and to the rear, with a load capacity of 420 kg. Constructed from cold drawn steel sections and precision milled ball tracks, this is a very strong compact slide, which offers high resistance against axial and coaxial torque loading. Resulting in minimal deflection at full extension and low operating forces throughout the traverse.
Additional product variations can be produced with bespoke closed lengths, extensions, mounting options, surface treatments and stainless ball bearings/cages. The TSRT-80 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 TSRT 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 12.46 kg per metre.
