Ultio slides are sold as singles, so order two units if a pair is required
The 7040 slide is part of the new ULTIO range, designed for enhanced corrosion protection, particularly the rigorous demands for emergency vehicles. ULTIO slides are manufactured from high quality zinc plated C45 steel sections: Cold drawn inner beams with a rolled steel outer beam to allow a narrow space profile, demanded by fire truck manufacturers. Stainless steel grade 304 bearings and cages increase corrosion resistance, without compromising load or torsional rigidity.
The grade of steel profile is important in achieving accurate, strong ball races, which allow a slight pre-load without lateral play between the beams. This quality of movement is usually associated with high end hardened steel slides at substantially higher price points. Load rating at 600mm at full extension is 250kg per extended pair, with a huge safety margins to allow for vehicular shock & vibration.
This slide is designed to extend 150% of the closed length, so the drawer completely leaves the fabrication and access can be made at the rear without over reaching. without lateral play between the beams. Ultio 7040 weighs 9.5kg per metre. Applications for this super extension slide are fire truck light portable pumps/generators, weapon handling, light rail battery rafts, robotics and rugged tool boxes on excavators.
The 7040 slide is tested at 10,000 operational cycles, with the slides spaced 1000mm apart. At 550mm length, with full extension and SWL loading of 255kg, the slides deflect 24mm. Deflection is the measurement of drop taken at the full extension of the slides and influences the ease of operational forces to close and open the drawer. Four beam 150% extension slides deflect approx 4% of their closed length under maximum loading due to the multiple beams; much less for part load. At this maximum load capacity the operational forces are still less than 5kg to open and close. During testing, the drawer was stable without any side load movement or damage to the raceways, due to the high grade of steel used in the construction of the beams.
The 7040 is stocked across all key lengths up to 700mm. The newly launched XTSR-80 150% travel slide in the Professional Range covers all lengths (and bespoke) from 300 to 1,600mm on fast production lead-times.
Prices are per single slide. Loadings are given per extended pair. There are two slides per pair. The Ultio 7040 is available from stock across all key lengths to 700mm. For OEM volumes, please allow 8 weeks for delivery unless subscribed to our stock holding programme which facilitates next day supply.Download Datasheet

Product exceeds my expectations. This product is of the highest quality I look forward to using it in our application if I had the capability I would be a distributor of this product in the United States.
Heavy, chunky and super smooth. Backed up by very fast sales support. Getting parts to WA, Australia was not an issue and we received them within a week. Fitted they work well without play and easy to operate at fully loaded. Great support from the guys as usual
These look to be very well made and at a good price.
I had the best technical advice in order to select the right product. Delivery was next day as assured in order to meet a deadline. I would definitely recommend this company

10 pairs of the 550mm delivered over night to UK. There is no play which is important to our use. The web site is easy to use and I got a 3D file without issue. Well packed but I had to ask for an invoice.
The slides arrived 3 weeks after ordering, which was acceptable since I had been quoted longer. We had switched from a previous supplier due to quality issues and of course pricing. This slide is far more stable with increased ball bearings. Anti corrosion is OK but not necessary in this application.

This is a high spec product with rigid bearing fit and smooth action. The beams are of high quality and the end stops cushioned. Prices are keen compared to what else is available from Europe. The extra load capacity was paramount for our use withdrawing portable pump units.
