NEW PRODUCT – Supported Slide Rail – 15mm wide – 500mm long:

This is a ‘supported style’ 15mm wide slide rail makes adding linear motion control easy. This product is the slide rail itself only, it works perfectly with our 15mm Diameter Rail Smaller Slider and the 15mm Diameter Rail Larger Slider. Made of a precision stainless-steel precision railing. It is possible to cut it down to any size but you’ll need tools that can cut hardened stainless steel.

The stainless steel rail is strong and straight but works best if bolted down. There are holes in the base for easy attachment to any metal or wood surface. Unlike our rounded rail, this style can support a platform of maybe 5 lbs without needing another support. For best stability, you’ll want two of these and then two or more rail sliders for support. Note that these are ‘hobby’ grade slide rails, the slider only moves with force applied, such as a motor! They are pretty good quality and suitable for DIY robotics projects, but they’re not going to have the same smooth action as high-grade (several $100) machine components.

Do not try to attach either slider onto the rail without the plastic insert! The insert keeps the ball bearings in while you fit the slider on. See the photos for more details on how to do this! If you lose a ball bearing or two, it’ll still work but its best to keep them all in!

NEW PRODUCT – 15mm Slide Railing Platform – Larger Size:

Make your robot or CNC move on our 15mm Supported Slide Rail with this sliding ball-bearing platform. The slider is a bit larger than the other slider we carry for the 15mm wide supported slide rail. This slider platform is 60mm x 47mm and has four holes on the outside tapped for M4 machine screws so you can attach pretty much anything you want. This slider has a plastic interior with circulating ball bearings to make it slide smoothly along the railing.

The platform won’t come off the railing once attached. It’s also fairly well supported due to the T-shaped rail, so for ~5 lb loads you can probably get away with just one rail. Often times, CNC projects will have two of these on opposite sides of the machine body to support a larger platform. You can also have some other support mechanism of your own devising.

Comes as a single bearing platform. You’ll want to pick up at least one 15mm railing as well. We have a bunch of bearings, supports and platforms that you may want to use so check out our CNC category

  1. Where can I find information about the silde railing platform hole spacing?
    Thanks
