Design capabilities

Whatever you may need, however big the challenge, you can be assured that here at Accuride, we can provide the ball bearing slide design you need.

Our vast range of standard, customised or bespoke sliding solutions, based on ball bearing slides, is simply unrivalled in the world today.

Our European Director of Product Engineering is Peter Bayles. Peter is a chartered engineer and member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

He says: "Every company now seems to say it provides 'solutions' – the word is becoming over-used. Yet it is difficult to come up with a better description of what we do. We supply solutions for customers who need access or movement for an application"

Experts in the design of ball bearing slides

Peter manages an experienced multi-disciplinary design team, split between the UK and Germany. There are around a dozen engineers, split between the locations, working in focus teams on numerous design projects.

In most cases, these projects are in response to design briefs from our customers.

Sometimes, however, these may be new, innovative ideas that the company has developed. These will then be offered to potential customers – what Peter describes as "solutions to problems that the customers didn't know they had".
