A new addition to the Item range is the T-Slot Slider 8 80x40 that is guided by the groove in a standard Line 8 profile. Available through Machine Building Systems in the UK, the T-Slot Slider uses inserts manufactured from free-running plastic to deliver low-friction, low-wear motion without the need for lubricants. The body of the T-Slot Slider is die-cast zinc.
Item has designed the slider to cope with damp or dusty conditions, and M6 captive nuts enable the slider to be attached to other components. The maximum horizontal or vertical load per slider is 50N.
