Quick delivery for those who need to only make a few systems or who need to prove a concept before committing to high volume production.
Alignment of rail joints is important for smooth carriage transistion between rail sections. Rail connection alignment tool is available on request.
In addition to our standard curved rail product offering we do "Custom" curved rail systems.
With a combination of these curved rail components you can make the motion path of your choice. Standard three cam roller type carriages or moving block assemblies are easily mounted to the rail structure. You can mount multiple carriages to a rail.
Sometimes you need to move a payload in a very specific motion path that is not just a straight line. It may be straight for a distance but then you need to make a turn. Maybe you need to move along an oval path or a circle or some other path. In the end you need to be arrive back at the starting position. Our business model is focused on OEM applications. We can Design, Prototype, and Manufacture. Below are a select few systems made at our Fort Mill, SC facility.
Each moving block (aka carriage) can support up to 4.4 N ( about 1.0 lb) payload. Blocks can move independently or be connected in series via drive belt.
Many systems don't close the loop like race cars going around a track. Some only move a short distance and then return to the starting point. Very smooth almost frictionless motion is important. We are experts at this.
Four slider assemblies per rail allow smooth almost frictionless door movement.
Ultra Low Profile Linear Guide System
Three Bearing Slider Assembly:
Capable of moving up to 11 Newtons (2.5 lb) payload per slider assembly
These systems are very economical. Track motion path is easy to manufacture and can constructed in a varity of ways.
