Helix Linear Technologies, a manufacturer of small diameter lead screws and linear actuators, recently launched a new line of telescoping linear slides.
The company said the precision telescoping slides are used in CNC machine doors, railway car doors, packaging and logistics automation robots, aircraft seats, medical equipment and patient beds, fire trucks and emergency vehicles.
Helix’s telescoping rails carry high loads and offer long life with corrosion protection for demanding applications, according to Helix.
The new telescoping slides are intended for automation applications and can move loads as high as 3,800 kilograms (8,378 pounds) per pair of guides. One of the key features of the slides is that they offer extensions of up to 150% of the closed rail length, Helix maintained.
