Accuride slides are typically used across many industries and applications and it doesn’t really matter if these are industrial or woodworking projects.
However, we sometimes design slides specifically for an application and this is mainly when we are manufacturing bespoke slides. Some of our slides are more suited to one type of industry, for example,
very heavy duty slides with shock blocks are used where vibration could be an issue, or some very thin
slides are made for use in electronic servers.
Some of the features incorporated into the slides will pre-select where they will be used. The DS5322
series and the DZ0522 series have very specific mounting features, as do the slide series with bayonet mountings.
These features dictate the type of application and their suitability for mounting in steel applications, and so forth.
The majority of our slides are multi-purpose and have been tested to different cycle rates. Lower cycle rates and higher load rates are more indicative of Industrial applications and higher cycle rates and lower load rates are indicative of woodworking applications. These ratings are all shown on the datasheets within our catalogue.
