Friction Drawer Slides
Our Accuride friction drawer slides range includes non-adjust, manual adjust and automatic adjust linear motion friction guide cassettes. Each is manufactured with corrosion-resistant aluminium, which can handle any task in even the harshest of environments.
The non-adjust cassette comes with no pre-load and will move freely without having any pressure against it.
The manual adjust cassette allows you to adjust the pre-load with three screws, giving you the desired tension — it can be loosened or tightened depending on your application.
The auto-adjust cassette comes with three pins which you insert into the end of the carriage then press on the springs to release the friction element. You can then feed it into the track and remove the pins to adjust the pre-load — the pre-load is set at 4.5 newtons.
Friction drawer slides give you a versatile movement solution, using a self-lubricating carriage and rail to bring motion to your designs. Traditional methods of slides and linear track systems use ball bearings.
Typical applications for friction slides are automation and motion control due to their resilience against moisture and chemicals.
