Curved Rail Door Guide System

We design, develop, and manufacture custom curved linear rail guide systems for medical, industrial, and mobile vehicle platforms. Below is an example of a door guide system that allows an offroad vehicle cabin door to slide and seal tightly upon closing.

Door Closure System

Offroad Vehicle Application

Allows door to push out and slide back upon opening. Allows door to pull in and seal tight upon closing.

Rail length is 864 mm (34 inches)
Offset is approximately 152mm (6 inches)
Payload attaches via a female rod end bearing

This design started with a requirement to control or guide the cabin door movement along a specific motion path.

All our curved linear rail systems are designed to your specific motion profile requirement. We will need several bits of data such as the motion profile, moving payload weight, and speed prior to estimating the cost of the system.

Complete Custom Solution

For annual volume production requirements of a few hundred pieces it is sometimes feasible to design and manufacture a custom solution. If you have unique requirements or wish to keep the competition from quickly replicating your efforts custom solutions are a good way to go. In this particular case no off-the-self solution was available and it made sense to go this direction.

Drawer Slide Systems

Our standard slide systems are made of heavy duty cold drawn steel profiled rails mated with cold formed intermediate elements to give the product superior strength over conventional stamped metal drawer slides.

Each rail goes through a special heat treating process to improve wear and provide a corrosion resistant surface for long life.
