Elesa+Ganter designs new standard telescopic rails range for multiple applications

Elesa+Ganter, a joint venture to offer product range of standard machine elements for the mechanical industry, has designed a new range of standard telescopic rails, suitable for use in a number of different applications.

Telescopic rails were traditionally only used for mechanical engineering and plant construction purposes, but are also ideal for other areas, such as vehicle and storage technology, or aviation and the medical sector. Stainless steel telescopic slides are also available off-the-shelf - along with FDA-compliant lubricants.

Depending on the length of the extension (between 300 and 1,500 mm), the telescopic slides are made up of two, three or four interconnected slides. These slides are guided by ball bearings, which are securely embedded by ball cages.

This makes partial extension, full extension and even over-extension possible. The portfolio even includes full extensions in both directions as a standard element. Elesa+Ganter product range includes a wide range of solutions in terms of features such as Latches, dampening systems, self-retracting mechanisms and detach functions are available for each type. As usual, Elesa+Ganter can also provide customized adaptations for customers.

Despite the enormous variety on offer, Elesa+Ganter has a way to keep things clear for its customers. A matrix overview shows the main features of all telescopic slides at a glance. Elesa+Ganter tried and tested standard sheets provide details for each individual slide type. This user-friendly approach extends to mounting: Elesa+Ganter uses a clear table to show the relevant fastening holes for countersunk or socket cap screws, instead of providing a confusing overview of mounting holes.
