This week, our UK Sales Engineer has been busy in front of coach and trailer manufacturers, who have the problem of decreasing payloads. One particular UK based trailer manufacturer has placed an order for the heavy duty aluminium 410 slide as it does exactly that. Carrying 325kg at 500mm long, this lightweight heavy duty load capacity slide will decrease the payload giving the customer reason to now use Widney's 410 aluminium slide.
These benefits have also carried over to other applications outside the trailer manufacturing industry. One particular customer has specified a low corrosion and erosion slide as this application may need to operate under water. With the application needing the slides to carry 250kg and the need of a lightweight slide being used, the 410 ticks every box again.
Widney manufacture both light & heavy duty slides on site in Birmingham.
