We design, develop, and manufacture custom curved linear rail guide systems for medical, industrial, and mobile vehicle applications. Below is an example of a door guide system that allows an offroad vehicle cabin door to slide and seal tightly upon closing.
Allows door to push out and slide back upon opening. Allows door to pull in and seal tight upon closing.
In this application the customer needed to control or guide the cabin door movement along a specific motion path.
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.
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.
A few areas where you can find these products in use are listed below:
