Elesa+Ganter is adding telescopic slides to its portfolio. With a wide range of extension types, additional functions and dimensions, these slides can handle loads of between 28 and 310 kg per pair.
Elesa+Ganter has had standard linear guidance parts in its product range for some time. The tempered materials used for standard cam roller guides and linear slides guarantee precision and wear-free operation.
Elesa+Ganter is adding 13 new variants to complement these standard series – telescopic rails made of rolled sheet metal, with a range of cross-sections, materials, features and load-bearing capacities.
Elesa+Ganter designed the range of new standard telescopic rails to be suitable for use in a number of different areas. Telescopic rails are traditionally used for mechanical engineering and plant construction purposes, but are also ideal for other areas, such as vehicle and storage technology, or aviation and the medical sector. Stainless steel telescopic slides are also available off-the-shelf – along with FDA-compliant lubricants.
Depending on the length of the extension (between 300 and 1,500 mm), the telescopic slides are made up of two, three or four interconnected slides. These slides are guided by ball bearings, which are securely embedded by ball cages.
This makes partial extension, full extension and even over-extension a possibility. Elesa+Ganter’s portfolio even includes full extensions in both directions as a standard element. The product range includes a wide range of solutions in terms of features: Latches, dampening sys- tems, self-retracting mechanisms and detach functions are available for each type. As usual, Elesa+Ganter can also provide customized adaptations for customers.
Despite the enormous variety on offer, Elesa+Ganter has a way to keep things clear for its customers. A matrix overview shows the main features of all telescopic slides at a glance. Elesa+Ganter’s tried and tested standard sheets provide details for each individual slide type. This user-friendly approach extends to mounting: Elesa+Ganter uses a clear table to show the relevant fastening holes for counter- sunk or socket cap screws, instead of providing a confusing overview of mounting holes.
