Application Focus: Hevi-Rail® Enables Truck Bed Extender

August 17, 2015 - Rockford, IL  -  Posted by Dave Humblet

Hevi-Rail Product Group

Within PBC Linear®’s Cam Roller Technology (CRT) product line, Hevi-Rail has several performance characteristics that make it ideal for heavy-use cases. Some of these characteristics include low coefficient of friction, high load ratings, and the ability to easily roll in and out of the rail.  These properties, as well as the ability to carry very heavy loads, are what make the Hevi-Rail linear guide system a great pick for mobile applications such as truck bed extenders for pickup or flatbed trucks. The low coefficient of friction allows for a heavy item, such as a full-size tool chest, to be moved easily. The clearance between the OD of the large radial roller and the profile channel allow the bearings to roll forward and backward with ease. For more ratings and specifications for Cam Roller Technology and the Hevi-Rail linear guide system, download the engineering reference guide here.
