Accuride Presents Versatile Linear Track Systems

Accuride introduces the 115RC, a versatile linear motion track system designed to accommodate a wide variety of applications.

Comprised of aluminum tracks and re-circulating ball carriages, it is a cost-effective solution for projects that require a defined length of travel. The multi-component aspect of the 115RC System allows for several mounting and installation configurations. This flexibility expands potential applications, which may include movement, positioning, or guidance for screens, panels, or boards in business or school settings, restaurants, retail stores, and more.

The corrosion-resistant aluminum track is available in two lengths, 47″ and 94″, which may be cut to the length required. Multiple sections may be joined to extend the track to virtually any distance. The track may be side, flat, or vertically mounted. When flat mounted, the track may be oriented with the ball carriage facing up or down. Vertical mounting may be used for non-load bearing applications.

The re-circulating ball carriages provide the means for movement and positioning. One or more carriages may be inserted into the track. Single carriages may be used to provide independent movement, or multiple carriages may be combined. Additionally, both single and multiple-combined carriages may be used within one track. Carriages are available in two options with stainless steel or polymer ball bearings. The stainless steel ball carriage offers the highest load capacity. The polymer ball carriage is grease-free, and provides clean, smooth, and quiet operation.

The 115RC system carries a maximum of 265 pounds. Load rating is based on the type and number of carriages inserted into the track.

Installation of the 115RC Linear Track System is quick and easy. The tracks have drilling marks for both the fixing holes and end stops. Once the track is installed and the ball carriages are inserted, end stops are attached to keep the carriages securely within the track.

Accuride International is a leader in the design and manufacture of movement solutions for a broad range of applications throughout many industries. The company has locations in North America, Europe, and Asia.
