R and DMonte - Versatile Flat Mount Slide

The Versatile Flat Mount Slide, uses a patented friction guiding system instead of ball bearings. This system works with adjustable, spring biased, gliding strips and is developed and produced according to IATF 16949 standards.

The main application of this Monte is armrest guidance in the automotive industry. For this specific market we invented the HAS (Horizontal Armrest Slide). But our Monte is also suitable for other applications where constant force motion is required such as:

  • mid consoles in personal cars;
  • headrests in personal cars; 
  • lower leg seat support in personal cars:
  • head rests in airplane chairs;
  • trucker's bed 

Custom made slides can be produced with customer specific requirements in coating, length, extension, features and mounting possibilities.
