Accuride (www.accuride.com) has unveiled a linear motion track system specifically designed to accommodate a wide range of applications. Offering a cost-effective solution for projects that requiring a defined length of travel, the 115RC linear track system is comprised of re-circulating ball carriages and aluminum tracks.
The all-new system’s multi-component aspect delivers flexibility in mounting, configuration and installation, while its versatility opens up various potential applications, like providing positioning and movement for panels, screens and boards, or machinery, medical apparatus and manufacturing equipment.
Available in two different lengths, 47” and 94”, the corrosion-resistant aluminum track may be cut to the desired length. It can be mounted either flat, side or vertically. The track is ideal for applications requiring non-load bearing guide when mounted vertically.
The movement and positioning of the track is provided by its recirculating ball carriages. It can be inserted with multiple carriages, which can be used separately for independent movement or combined as a unit or both.
Carrying a maximum of 265 pounds, the load rating or 115RC linear track system based on the number and type of carriages fitted into the track.
It comes in two carriage options — the grease-free polymer ball offers clean and maintenance free operation as well as a quite and smooth movement, while the stainless steel ball carriage provides the highest load capacity.
To ease installation, the tracks feature drilling marks for both the end stops and fixing holes. Once installed, the ball carriages are then inserted into the tracks, while attaching the end stops to secure the carriage.
