EXOSLIDE 30S (STEEL)
Note: the slides are sold individually! Up to 4 slides can be used per rail.
The Exoslide 30S have plain chrome steel bearings as the rail contact surface for extra smooth operation and higher bearing preload capacity.
They use your 30mm square profiles to create a linear rail. Use between one to four slides per rail to control degrees of freedom. For example, with two parallel rails, you can use four slides on the one rail to act as the primary guide, and one slide on the second rail as a secondary guide. The slides are universal, and mount head to toe.
The most popular square rail profile is the 3030 or 3060 aluminum extrusion. Because all extrusions vary in width slightly, the Exoslide 30S has bearing preload adjustment bolts to compensate. This also lets you tailor the bearing preload to the use case: light for low load, and up to 50N for demanding applications.
The Exoslide 30S also has an open source mount platform with four M4 nuts spaced 20mm apart to mount your projects to. The mounting point specs are found in the download section.
Make your next designs better with slides that let you use common 3030 rails, are expandable to whichever length rail you can dream up, can control the degrees of freedom in arrangements that would normally bind, allow for easily adjustable bearing preload, and have an open mounting platform.
Max Bearing Radial Preload: 50N per bearing location
Dimensions: 80mm x 50mm x 19mm (bracket 13mm wide)
