4080.TV28 (Compact Linear Rail) - Hardened Steel Black Zinc

The Saibo Compact Linear Rail System is designed for industrial applications requiring speed and precision. The C-profiled rail is manufactured from cold drawn carbon steel, it is then induction hardened and the raceways are ground. The Rails are supplied predrilled, for countersunk fixing. Counterbored or additional holes can be supplied upon request.

All rails come with enhanced Black Zinc 20µm Corrosion Protection, as standard. We presently have rails sizes 28 and 43mm profiles, with 35mm to follow in 2020

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.

Industrial Storage

In-rack drawers and bespoke storage systems and assemblies

Museum Storage

The breadth of GSF's product range gives you an unparalled advantage when engineering solutions for unique storage systems that have to accomodate large irregular shaped artifacts or exhibits. Our experience with some of the more unusual high volume low load applications and environmentally sensitive storage conditions is available for you to call upon together with access to perhaps the widest range of sliding procuts in the world.

Correct selection and specification of the slide system will ensure maximisation of the space inside the storage or display unit while providing safe and secure access when required.

Workspace Storage

GSF offers a wide range of standardised products that are available direct from stock and which are most suitable for use in workspace desking, tool storage, assembly and operation stations. These products can be purchased free of restrictive minimum order quantities and charges.

Machine Building

The design and construction of specialised operational machinery and machine guards. The excellent range of Saibo hardened linear rails are designed to be economical whilst offering exceptional service life required in machine guarding.


Specification and design of linear movement systems incorporating linear rails and telescopic slides for use in machine guarding applications and the design and installation of manufacturing, cargo handling and other situation specific plant and machinery.

In such industrial applications, reliability and robustness are key requirements. When incorporated into automated plant, movement precision is also vital. The load capacities indicated on our high-end range represent the maximum load that can be carried whilst causing a slide deflection at full extension of no more than 1% of the slide's closed length. This is a much higher and more rigorous standard than is typically used by others for measuring slide load capacities, as a results our customers have come to rely on Sliding System's products for their durability and strength.

Our range also includes slides that operate with ultra-high precision based on innovative roller bearing technology, and which are self aligning.

Our design team has the ability to offer all or any of these components when working alongside your own engineering team.
