E48 – LD Heavy
The E48 linear motion system is at the heavy duty end of our range of linear rail range. With a much thinner space profile than other contenders in its class the E48 heavy duty linear rail is made from zinc plated cold drawn steel section and is a perfect for commercial, emergency, defence and industrial applications.
Carrier – G60/G67
Made from hardened steel components specifically designed to work within the slim profile of the E48 linear rail to keep the overall dimensions as streamlined as possible. These carriers are perfect for heavy duty materials handling, industrial and defence systems.
Both these carriers are available in High Temperature Versions for use in applications where temperature ranges are between 100°C to 250°C, for more information see below.
Standard and High Temp Carriers
In addition to our three standard range categories – Light Duty linear rail, Medium Duty linear rail and Heavy Duty linear rails, our linear motion systems can be produced to suit customer needs and include either our standard carriers, made from steel and reinforced nylon or our High Temp (HT) carriers.
Our standard carriers have a recommended operating temperature range from -20°c to 100°c. Anti-corrosion standard coating for our steel rails is RoHS compliant silver zinc with a 12 microns average thickness, which offers excellent resistance to the salt spray testing.
Applications requiring a higher temp specification should choose our HT carriers. Our HT carriers are made from a top plate of steel and a bottom plate of steel and can be used in temperatures up to 250°c. However at these temperatures adjustments are necessary: additional play needs to be allowed for the expansion of the different working components, which would otherwise jam the rail; use of high temperature grease and the removal of all plastic parts are necessary and these adjustments would need to be performed at our factory.
Please contact the UK sales office for further advice prior to ordering.
CAUTION: The Zinc coating deteriorates above 120°c, for higher temperature further plating solutions are available; please contact us for details.
The ball bearings used within our carriers are made from 100C6 chrome steel and are greased as standard with a high pressure grease for steel slides and a white grease for aluminium and stainless stainless slides. Upon request we can use food grease (compatible clean room), a high temperature grease, a Teflon free grease (for spray booths), grease free mounting (although we do not advice this option.)
The characteristics given on this website correspond to standard manufacture or usual requirements. Our position as a manufacturer enables us to offer great flexibility in order to meet the most specific requirements. So Chambrelan can easily adapt part lengths, optional lengths, drillings, diameters and hole centres, surface treatments, options and fittings for fixing.
