Saibo compact linear rails and sliders are designed for industrial applications requiring speed and precision. The compact design of the fixed rail is processed by grinding and induction hardening the raceways. This provides for high durability, precision and speed of operation.
All Saibo steel ball-races are induction hardened to 58+4 HRC similar to that of the running bearings, allowing for very low displacement forces, yet increased longitudinal acceleration. In addition to the induction hardened raceways, the beams have an enhanced black zinc 20µm corrosion protection which is both RoHS and REACH compliant. The manufacturing process is controlled by ISO9001/2015.
The mobile sliders (also known as carriers) have various mounting options, with 3, 4 or 5 bearing configurations to maximise performance. The slider body is manufactured from high grade 7075 T6 aluminium alloy with anodised surface treatment. The precision bearings are sealed, with centrally mounted eccentric tolerance adjustment. This produces high loading, low noise, excellent rigidity and stable performance, even at the highest speeds.
For our Aerospace customers requiring lighter weight solutions, the size 28 rail can be supplied in totally interchangeable, extruded 7075 T6 alloy. The rail reference is ATV-28 and carrier is ATCA-28. Imperial fastenings for the carrier can also be bespoke drilled. This hardened alloy meets aerospace standards to our AS9100-D production and can be supplied from stock. Applications for this alloy rail include drop arm rests and privacy screens within the cabin seating, as per below images. Please consult us for further information.
The durability and excellent wear resistance of Saibo linear rails makes them ideal for applications such as train doors, automated machine guards and robotic precision pick & place. We presently have 28 and 43mm profiles, with 35mm to follow in 2020. Saibo telescopic slides & linear rails are designed as an economical drop-in replacement for current European manufactured product without compromising quality or performance.
