The FlexFit 1529S Rail 4010.1529S is the stainless steel grade 430 (1.4016) variant.
Type 430 stainless steel has good corrosion resistance to a large variety of media including nitric acid and some organic acids. The corrosion resistance of type 430 is optimal when it has a highly polished surface. As with other ferritic grades, resistance to stress corrosion cracking is very high. Being ferritic, the 430 rail will have magnetic properties not associated with grade 304. Both steel and stainless rail variants use the same stainless carrier ordered separately.
FlexFit is a modular linear rail system with stainless steel 304 (1.4301) carriers and steel (BZP) or stainless 430 (1.4016) rail. Carriers with mounting holes are supplied pre-set in the rail. The rail is supplied cut to length an pre-drilled ready to use.
FlexFit 1529S rail is available in lengths stocked to 2,400mm. The carriers move independently and there is no limit to how many are fitted to each rail. The carriers are available in either 3 bearing (42kg load) or 5 bearing (60kg load) options. The 5 bearing carrier provides more stability for lateral and vertical applications. The rail grade 430 has excellent properties
The FlexFit system is tested to 100,000m travel with a 42kg load under normal conditions and the carriers show no sign of play throughout the service life.
The rails are supplied in either zinc plated steel or stainless steel. The carriers are supplied only in stainless steel. The are no plastic parts used in this system so it is suitable for high temperature environments. Unlike other systems, the rails can have customer specific mounting options and hole patterns subject to minimum order quantities. Any amount of carriers can be fitted per rail.
1529S Rail Carriers are purchased separately and delivered factory fitted. FlexFit is now stocked and available on a same day despatch, with high levels of stock.Download Datasheet
