ACCURIDE introduced a new dampening mechanism, the Easy-Close, for its 115RC linear motion track system.
The Easy-Close is simple to install as an add-on device to help slow and control component movement at the end of travel, according to the company. In addition to dampening the action on either end of the track’s travel distance, the device has a 3-lb. pull force, which provides enough resistance to hold components in place at either end point. The maximum load that can be dampened is 44 lbs., though installers are recommended to test applications for best results. For information, visit http://bit.ly/115RC-EC.
