The SDTS-50 telescopic slide is manufactured from marine grade 316L (1.4404) stainless steel (inox) offering a very high corrosion resistance. The austenitic structure of 316L stainless gives excellent toughness, even at cryogenic temperatures. The beams are polished to a bright finish on all surface areas as standard.
The SDTS-50 is particularly suited for highly corrosive applications with prolonged exposure to the elements. Having a compact 50mm profile, this makes it an excellent choice for undercarriage train battery rafts in hostile conditions or military vehicles working in sub-zero climates. This is an extreme load/duty full extension telescopic slide (70–294 kg/pair) suitable for a wide range of applications. At 550mm 1 pair has a full extension load capacity of 287 kg.
Constructed from milled stainless steel sections, with machined ball tracks for accuracy, it has excellent levels of shock and vibration resistance. Accordingly the product is well suited to supporting generators and heavy machine guards, even with an over extension of 120%. The slide beams, cages and ball bearings are manufactured from austenitic grade 316L (1.4404). End stop bolts and retaining pins are austenitic grade 304 (1.4301), completing the corrosion protection, There is the bespoke option to manufacture an all 316L product on higher production volumes.
Due to the extreme strength of the mobile 'I' beam, this slide is robust to applied loads when in the extended position making it an excellent choice for dynamic applications. Unlike many other slides manufactured from rolled 'C' sections. There are no plastic parts in the manufacture of this range, making it ideal for high temperature use. A single SDTS-50 weighs 9.12 kg per metre.
The SDTS-50 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 120% extension which will reduce the load slightly. Please consult our sales engineers for this no cost option.
