Brief:  As you know we get a lot of interesting case studies from customers who have bought our heavy duty drawer slides.  Over recent issues we’ve covered canopies on aeroplanes, model spitfires, stage designers, vehicle builders, military and defence (which we can’t really talk about) applications and manufacturing stories.

Our latest case study is no less interesting and has been designed to be an exact replica of an F1 race car.  The SIM, designed and built by Stable Fabrication, was designed to showcase what an F1 looks like in the flesh, so to speak.

Solution:  With need of an adjustable foot pedal, Stable came to Chambrelan and we helped them select the RA7R.  The RA7R heavy duty drawer slide is Chambrelan’s most successful slide and is capable of carrying 350kg per pair at 615mm extension.  Favoured by vehicle builders the RA7 is a three beam zinc plated heavy duty drawer slide capable of delivering a sequential load.

The RA7 is a favourite of vehicle builders and is regularly used as a stowage solution for heavy duty drawers, sliding generators and extendable work surfaces.

Reviewing the D402 Light Duty Drawer Slide

Due to the rise of interest over recent weeks in our range of small, precision designed drawer slides we thought we’d review the D402, one of our most popular light duty slides.

Made from anodized aluminium the D402 is a light duty drawer slide designed for lighter loads with fewer working cycles. As a two beam telescopic the D402 offers partial extension and has been made to fit the tightest of space envelopes. Since it’s made from aluminium and designed to be a compact performer, this slide has a very smooth and noiseless handling operation and is best suited for retractable key boards, machine guard covering and being it’s a very light slide, used extensively in aeronautical applications.
