Slider Beds


Slider beds are available as a standard range, matched to the timing belt width. The preferred delivery length is 2000 mm. Cuts to length shorter than 2000 mm are available. The material ia UHMW polyethylene. This material has a low friction coefficient and is also wear resistant. The sliding friction value between standard polyurethane and low-pressure polyethylene is ~ 0.3.
The C profile is made of zinc plated sheet steel. The cut out is intended for fastening screws. The C profile has no bore holes.
Due to the relatively large expansion of the sliding material under temperature, provide expansion gaps on the rail stucture.
Approximate formula for the linear expansion is 2mm/10C temperature difference over 1000 mm of length.
