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 R26 heavy duty slide

Meet the R26

R26 DD

The R26 is manufactured from high quality cold rolled steel, it is a two beam zinc plated product, delivering a partial extension.  The R26 is the latest slide to offer a bi-directional movement capable of being used to access draws on either side of an application.  The bi-directional movement allows the slide to deliver each beam in order of sequence.

This sequential movement minimises what’s known as ‘ball cage creep’, or when the load twists, bending the inner beam.  This results in an increase of operational force to drive the slide forward, which will eventually ‘seize’ up the slide.  Bi directional heavy duty slides prevent this from happening and therefore are best suited for materials handling applications or where access to stowage needs to accessed from two sides.

The R26 heavy duty slide’s success can be attributed to its simple, yet clean design.  Created as a work horse this heavy duty slide is capable of delivering 80kg per pair at 500mm.
