Custom Linear Slides
DuraBond Slide can build custom linear slides designed for specific applications where standard linear slides may not be commercially available. Most available linear slides provide linear motion based on bearings, whether they are ball bearings, dovetail bearings or linear roller bearings. Linear stages, machine slides and other advanced slides use linear motion bearings to provide movement along both X and Y multiple axis. However, only Durabond Slide can enhance your custom manual positioning slide using our unique Rulon coated bearing surface feature, making your metal slides maintenance free, requiring no lubrication.
Linear Slide Design Features
In general, DuraBond Slides are designed to operate dry offering self-lubrication with high performance. The technical design data presented on the site represent typical performance values under controlled conditions. The requirements for you particular applications should be reviewed by a DuraBond Slide technical development engineer. Learn more about our linear slide design criteria such as recommended operating limits, bearing pressure, bearing speed, and bearing PV. You’ll see the subtle, yet significant benefits of a DuraBond Slide.
Linear Slide CAD Library
Our linear slide drawings are free to download in your machine design drawings and will make your job easier without having to retrace from a PDF or other document. We have 3D DWG data files, STEP, and SLDASM SolidWorks files available and made for insertion/import into a variety of different CAD programs.
