The range of 3301, 3832, 5321SC telescopic drawer slides and DP0115-ECRC-2 linear guides they use is large and continues to grow - Accuride's continual development of new and improved products gives manufacturers opportunities to design and bring to market exciting and functional solutions.



Petteri Laaksonen, Metallivalmiste's Managing Director, comments:


“Accuride has been a reliable supplier to our company for many years. The product range is really wide and delivery times are fast. The feedback from our customers has been excellent in relation to the operation of the rails. We have increased the use of soft-close in many products and have offered it as an alternative in almost all projects, especially in museums where customers consider this feature to be essential.”
