Nominal width 22-40

We have developed the solid plastic carriage for this purpose

The nominal width 22-40 is intended for use in the smallest installation spaces, or when every gram of weight saving counts.
Due to the easily exchangeable design, the nominal width 22-40 can be easily exchanged or installed even in very narrow installation spaces.
The advantage of not requiring any lubricants means that one work step is eliminated.
The nominal width 22-40 will be able to flex its polymer muscles especially in furniture construction, the aircraft interior industry, laboratory automation and testing and inspection equipment.
