Load capacity varies as the resuit of a number of factors. Main factors being the type of slide. length, and ratio between pull-out length and closed length. Another important factor is the number of cycles the slide is required to make. Thomas Regout distinguishes the type of usage between dynamic use and static use. Other factors that influence the load capacity are the features the slide is equiped with, and how it is mounted. Slides are usually mounted sideways so ail data conceming load-capacity will be given for sidemounted use. For information about the load capacity with bottom-mounted slides, please contact our sales department.
Dynamic load capacity
In order to détermine the dynamic load capacity. ail types of Thomas Regout slides hâve been tested for 100,000 cycles. Their maximum load capacity is compliant with, or exceeds, ail common national and international standards including DIN. BIFMA, BS, EN and JIS. The dynamic load capacity figures can be found in the graph below.
Static load capacity
Static load capacity is based on test results at 500.1000 and 10.000 cycles. This is most common for industrial purposes. The static load capacity is considerably higher than the dynamic load capacity for ail slides. The static load capacity figures listed below were determined for a single length of that slide and are for indication purposes only. Spécifie applications can be assessed by our R&D department and tested if necessary.
