Telescopic Slides and Linear Guides in the Rolling Stock Industry
When our customers within the rolling stock market choose components for use on trains and trams they look for reliability and durability.
Reliability because the passengers safety is paramount and durability in consideration of the extreme conditions of use; significant variations in temperature and weather, prolonged exposure to intensive vibration and high life cycle expectations of mechanical parts when in use.
Operators require robust and reliable components to ensure long life with low maintenance and low maintenance costs. Custom design solutions can be proposed to meet the most demanding of performance specifications.
In the rail sector linear guides and telescopic slides are used in many applications. As in other markets, Chambrelan is distinguished by its ability to deliver standard solutions or quickly develop customised solutions.
The main applications for our products in the railway industry are:
Protective hood of control desk
Mounted on RA44 slides, this hood prevents access to the control desk by unauthorized people.
NB : The slides can be flat mounted on the minor axis because the load to be withstood in extension is minimal.
Boxes fitted with slides
These industrial batteries mounted in boxes have to be taken out with a minimum of stress. Accessibility, easy removing and remounting are vital.
In this case, the solution consists of fitting brackets with locating pins onto the slides.
The nitruration operation enables the mechanical qualities of the slides to be improved as well as offering reinforced protection.
This 2 part cabinet has to open to allow the technicians internal access.
This low cost solution enables space to be saved and improves the access for and cost of maintenance.
NB : The considerable height of the drawer compelled us to use stabilising slides in the upper part to avoid a "swinging" effect.
