Proper Installation

Proper installation is crucial to maximizing the benefits of C-Rails. Here’s a detailed guide for optimal setup:

Slide orientation: The correct orientation of the three-roller slide is essential. Install it in the rail to distribute the load evenly between the two outside rollers. The orientation marks on the slider will guide you in aligning it correctly with the load direction. The mechanism functions efficiently under the weight it’s designed to support.

Lubrication – rails and bearings: The rollers are made of zinc-plated carbon steel sheets, and the rails are composed of anodized aluminum alloy. While the rollers are internally lubricated, it’s important to always keep a layer of grease on the rails for  smooth operation. As a guideline, it’s recommended to reapply fresh grease every 50,000 cycles to maintain optimal performance and prevent wear.

Preload adjustment: Adjusting the preload is key to a stable and smooth operation. Use an Allen wrench to loosen the center roller, adjusting it while holding it still with an open-end wrench. Set the roller to a position that achieves the desired preload so the slide moves smoothly along the rail without feeling loose. Once adjusted, tighten the screw while holding the roller flat with the wrench to secure the setting.

Following these installation insights ensures your Faztek C-Rails operate at their best, providing reliable and efficient service in your industrial setups.
