We design, develop, and manufacture custom ultra low profile telescopic slides for confined space applications. Below is an example of a system made using our SR28 series telescopic linear guide components to allow easy access to a power supply unit in a confined space with no access above or below the unit.
This design started with a requirement to provide easy access to a power supply unit in a semi-conductor processing facility. Space was limited and the power supply was too heavy to move without some type of assistance.
Standard catalog SR28 series semi-telescopic slides were used to make this bottom mount slide platform. By utilizing the large stainless steel plate and installing the slides on both sides it can perform as a fully telescopic slide.
Overall height (less than 3/4") and a requirement for a bottom mount solution was important to this customer. Payload was 500 lbs and it needed to be moved out about 24 inches from the production line for periodic servicing.
