Positioners or gliding rails were designed approximately 25 years ago in order to produce laminated or vinyl floor panels at high speed. High speed production machines in most cases are able to produce up to ±120 meter of product per minute.
What do you need to be able to produce at higher speeds like 200 meter a minute? Stable machinery, sharp and well balanced cutting equipment, cooling systems and a precision clamping system, or gliding rails, which we manufacture.
When floor panels are milled at high speed, you need good clamping. This ensures you are cutting exactly where you want to cut. Also, it causes less vibration ensuring a clean cut. Use gliding rails for faster, more precise and cleaner cut floor panels.
The top of the rail is dressed with tungsten carbide. This is almost as hard as diamond. This ensures a long lasting product life.
We grind the tungsten carbide to a surface roughness of Ra 0,01. This greatly reduces friction.
Having such a smooth surface means the clamping won't leave any traces or lines on the floor panel.
High speed producing leads to bigger impacts on machinery when things go wrong. The sections that are vulnerable to impacts were given a rounded corner at the entrance and exit. This redirects the impact when things really go wrong, resulting in no or minimum machine outage, thus more uptime
When milling at high speed, the produced dust can potentially blast a hole in the positioner. Which means dust can get in the machine.
We designed Spartacus, the heavy duty positioner, with a tungsten carbide reinforced backplate. It is used in positions where others don’t last long. The tungsten carbide backplate repels the dust very effectively.
This Spartacus lasts approximately ten times longer, resulting in TCO reduction and more uptime.
We strive to make every delivered product better then the previous iteration. Sometimes we find better ways of manufacturing, other times the product needs a better design. Either way, we want to make sure you always get the best product.
The redesign of the upper gliding rails was a necessity. It resulted in faster and easier to make gliding rails while improving the design of over 18 models.
This new design allows the machine operator to change the part within a few minutes, therefore resulting in more uptime.
The mounting system was redesigned to work with and simplify over 18 different models.
When a gliding rail is end-of-life, the mounting system can be reused on a different rail.
As much material as possible is removed, leaving more room for your milling cutter.
We offer aftercare and or guidance depending the area the customer resides
For production to run smoothly, you need to have a smooth gliding surface. After some time, a gliding rail needs to be grinded in order to function properly. We offer this service.
Have a difficult problem? Maybe we can design your solution.
If an accident has happened or a gliding rail broke, we can repair or replace it depending on the damage.
We have over 60 models is our product line, but are limited in our showcase. This is in order to protect all of our customers.
