DuraBond Slide Specifications and Capabilities

DuraBond Slide Components

  1. Base Stationary member of the linear slide system. Manufactured from high quality tool steel, hardened to 48-52 Rc and finish ground.
  2. Saddle Moving member of the linear slide system. Manufactured from high quality steel, bonded with Rulon bearing material and finish ground to create a precision slide.
  3. Way Saddle tracking member. Manufactured from high quality steel, bonded with Rulon bearing material and finish ground, ideal for machine use.
  4. Adjustment Way Saddle retaining member. Manufactured from high quality steel, bonded with Rulon bearing material and finish ground.
  5. Adjustment Gib Adjustable member of the linear slide system for setting clearance between the saddle and base. This member is bonded with Rulon bearing material and finish ground.
  6. Gib Screw High quality, fine thread Allen head screws strategically oriented along one side of the saddle for positioning the adjustment gib.
  7. Gib Screw Nut Locks the gib screw in place to maintain gib adjustment.
  8. Dowel Pins Dowel pins are incorporated for definitive alignment of the ways and saddle plate.
