Reviewing the E1020 Steel Drawer Slide

E1020 Steel Drawer Slide

With an increase of sales interest for the E1020 over the last quarter we thought we’d review why Chambrelan’s strongest steel drawer slide is one of our most popular drawer slides. The E1020 steel drawer slide is a monster, designed to perform at the extreme end of our heavy duty drawer slide range. The E1020 is a reinforced three beam zinc plated slide that uses steel ball bearings to deliver a smoother handling operation, despite the load.

When carrying extreme loads, for example, the E1020 with a closed length of 1000mm can carry 1100kg at 1000mm extension, the slides sequential movement comes into its own. This movement allows the inner beams to be released in order, meaning the movement is not only smoother, but more efficient especially when a coordinated release is necessary.

The sequential movement not only strengthens the slide, but it prevents the inner beams from twisting or bucking in the beams, also called the brinnelling affect. When this happens more force is needed to operate the slide and if it is not replaced, the end result will be a complete operational failure.

With its unique sequential movement, reinforced ball cages, stainless steel ball bearings and Chambrelan design, the E1020 has been used for heavy duty sliding security doors, sliding storage for large generators, the nuclear industry, military and defence applications as well as the emergency services.

Need something different?  You’ve come to the right place, some customers need non standard items and that’s when as a business Chambrelan comes into its own.  As designers and manufacturers of sliding systems with over 70 years of experience we can design and prototype slides specifically tailored to our customers needs.  For non standard items, drop us a line, we’re here to help.

Ideal for precision guided applications

Ideal for precision guided applications

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.

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.

With a complete collection of light duty telescopic slides, medium duty telescopic slides and heavy duty slides, as well a full range of linear rails and carriers, Chambrelan UK have been manufacturing and delivering heavy duty slides and linear rail motion systems for over 60 years.  We only use the finest materials and the best manufacturing techniques to create world renowned heavy duty slides.  By visiting our website you will be able to see our full range of products and their stock availability in real time, making your purchasing and slide selection easier and more efficient.  For none stock items, we work with engineers and designers to create bespoke heavy duty slides, made to order.  Call us and we will be more than happy to discuss any aspect of your application.

RA414 Medium Duty Telescopic Slide

The RA414 medium duty slide is a four beam nested slide made of cold rolled steel construction and is a medium duty over extending telescopic slide. Available in a range of closed lengths from 250mm through to 800mm The RA414 medium duty slide is zinc plated for extra corrosion protection.

As a medium duty telescopic slide the RA414 has a compact space envelope, making it suitable for a variety of applications including vehicle stowage systems, industrial storage, large drawer systems for domestic applications, especially where an over extending slide is required and for this reason it is favoured by many materials handling applications and is first choice for process and automation control equipment.
