ProductsSupreme solid-beam heavy duty slides

Together with our partner, we developed an extra heavy-duty industrial slide range up to 2000 kg load capacity. These different types of extra heavy-duty telescopic ball bearing Supreme slides, together with the Supra and TR-7619 slides, enlarge our robust and rigid product range for applications such as:

  • machine building industry
  • railway and special vehicle applications
  • medical equipment
  • automotive
  • packaging machines
  • industrial machines

The Supreme telescopic ball bearing slide range provides a highly accurate and smooth-running movement, under considerable loading. By machining the ball tracks, we can provide beam contact on the ball bearings at four points, which allows for a slight pre-load and effortless extension. The Supreme range is available in interchangeable steel, stainless steel, aluminium and bi-directional / bilex options.

Supreme information

1. Supreme Steel Slides - double T-design in steel (C45C+E)

Supreme Steel Slides are manufactured from high grade steel type C45 E+C which ensures a slide with strong raceways, fit for the industrial purpose they were designed. Plating is ROHS compliant. Steel beams are plated with an industry standard zinc and passivate 10-12 microns surface protection. Standard ball bearings are chrome plated steel balls with an option to upgrade to stainless steel 304 or 316L. Available in nine different types, check our Productselector for more information. 

2. Supreme Aluminum Slides - double T-design in aluminum (6082-T6)

Supreme Aluminum Slides are manufactured from 6082 T6 aluminum and stainless bearings. This slide is available in three different types, check our Productselector for more information.

3. Supreme Stainless Steel - double T-design in stainless steel (316L)

Supreme Stainless Steel slides are manufactured from marine grade 316L (1.4404) stainless steel (inox) offering a very high corrosion resistance which ensures a slide with strong raceways, fit for the industrial purpose they were designed. This suits applications such as train battery boxes where solid cross-section stainless steel slides are beyond budget. Aluminum and stainless steel slides have grade 316L bearings
as standard. Available in five different types, check our Productselector for more information.

4. Supreme Bilex Steel Slides - double T-design two-way extension in steel (C45C+E)

Supreme Bilex Steel Slides are manufactured from high grade steel type C45C+E which ensures a slide with strong raceways, fit for the industrial purpose they were designed. Plating is ROHS compliant. Steel beams are plated with an industry standard zinc and passivate 10-12 microns surface protection. Standard ball bearings are chrome plated steel balls with an option to upgrade to stainless steel 304 or 316L. It is a full extension two way slide and can be used in two way direction. Available in four different types, check our Productselector for more information.

5. Supreme Bilex Aluminum Slides - double T-design two way extension in aluminum (6082-T6)

Supreme Bilex Aluminum Slides are manufactured from 6082 T6 aluminum and stainless bearings. It is a full extension two way slide and can be used in two way direction. Available in three different types, check our Productselector for more information.

6. Supreme S-design Steel Slides - S-design in steel (C45C+E)

Supreme S-design Steel Slides are manufactured from high grade steel type C45 E+C which ensures a slide with strong raceways, fit for the industrial purpose they were designed. Plating is ROHS compliant. Steel beams are plated with an industry standard zinc and passivate 10-12 microns surface protection. Standard ball bearings are chrome plated steel balls with an option to upgrade to stainless steel 304 or 316L. Available in two different types, check our Productselector for more information.

Load Capacity and Deflection

The Supreme range is available in 44 different models which offer extensions from 50% through to 100% and even 200% of the slide’s closed length. We offer bi-directional / bilex extension as standard. Our slides are tested to destruction and we confidently work up to 2000 kg with the largest profiles. Load calculations are based upon 1% deflection of the slide’s closed length when fully loaded per extended pair. This rises to
approximately 2% on our 150% and 200% extension models due to the multiple beams. We recommend that external stops are used within the fabrication on the larger profile slides or those which may be subject to lateral and longitudinal forces. The stops used are limited to speeds not exceeding 0.3 mm/s.

Tested Conditions

The Supreme Range of high strength steel slides have been designed to work under conditions of extreme shock and vibration, particularly applications of under slung battery boxes on trains and heavy drawers on specialist vehicles. The Supreme range has been tried and tested ‘double T’ beam format where strength and rigidity is required with minimal slide deflection.

Standard Program

The extreme heavy duty drawer slides are available either from stock or on short production lead times. As our standard manufacturing process for the Supreme range is taking stock lengths of cold drawn steel and machining to size, we are able to offer ANY size configuration without the need for expensive tooling, even for low volumes. The slides in this range are sold per piece and not per pair. We can offer customized products (height, thickness, length and extension) by request. More information can be found herePlease challenge us with your applications and needs.
