This section provides an overview for slide packs as well as their applications and principles. Also, please take a look at the list of 10 slide pack manufacturers and their company rankings.
Table of Contents
A slide pack is a low-cost, linear motion system that enables unlimited linear motion by combining a slider with a precision press-formed ball case and roll-formed rails.
Combined with slide rails, the system is lightweight, compact, and enables nimble linear motion.
Slide packs can be used in linear motion systems for relatively light loads, such as copy machines, tool cabinets, electronic equipment cabinets, beverage vending machines, machine tool slide covers, cash registers, curtain walls, crane game rails, elevating racks, door rails, etc., and other sliding parts with relatively light loads.
Similar linear packs are also used in a wide range of applications, such as magnetic disk drives, electronic equipment, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, medical equipment, measuring instruments, plotters, and copying machines.
Slide packs are a linear motion system in which a slider with an integrated ball case moves in an infinite linear motion.
Austenitic stainless steel is used for the slide pack's rails, mounting plates, stoppers, and other parts to ensure high corrosion resistance.
In addition, the rigidity of the slide packs has been improved by increasing the thickness of the rails.
In addition, the slider section has been improved in recent years, resulting in lower noise.
When there is a possibility that the slider may overrun and come off the slide rail during use, a special stopper is attached to the end of the slide rail.
Even if the slider is pulled out from the slide rail during assembly, the ball is basically designed not to fall out, but if it is pinched during assembly, it may fall out.
