Friction guide system designed for reliable slide movement

Accuride has announced the FG115 Friction Guide System. Said to be affordable, lightweight, easy-to-install and low-maintenance, the linear track system brings smooth, reliable slide movement to automated machinery in production lines.

The system is designed with two core components: a rail and a carriage.

Customers may choose rail lengths of 1 or 2 metres, as well as select from three types of carriages: Non-Adjust, for when movement or clearance do not need to be adjusted; Manual Adjust, for when adjustment is needed for suitable clearance or preload; Auto-Adjust, for when constant preload force is needed for the life of the system.

The system load rating is 4,000 N (900 lbf.).
