Accuride Slides Guide WARK Group to Success

In today’s busy world, people are always looking for ways to make everyday activities such as eating and shopping quicker and easier than ever. Food and retail trucks have taken advantage of this in recent years, with the mobile food truck industry in America estimated to have increased by 20% in 2019 alone, due not only to the efficiency for customers, but also versatility and low running costs for business owners.

 

WARK Group is a company that knows all about the popularity of these mobile services, specialising in the manufacture of bespoke food, retail, and advertising trailers from their base in Jelonek, Poland. With years of experience in the industry, they can design and build eye-catching yet highly functional trailers to suit the specific needs of their clients’ staff and customers.

One of their latest projects was a trailer designed for a French patisserie company, featuring both refrigerated storage for sandwiches, pastries and desserts, and storage drawers for ambient products. The challenge when designing this trailer was finding a way to access the storage drawers underneath the fridge when necessary, while also keeping everything tidy and compact when not in use. The perfect solution therefore, was to mount the fridge onto a low-profile linear guide that could be easily hidden while still providing smooth movement to slide the fridge in and out of position.

 

To find the right guide for the job, WARK Group turned to Albeco, a leading Polish wholesaler of bearings, tools, and slides, with 30 years of experience in distributing for manufacturers like Accuride. Albeco used their industry knowledge to advise WARK Group on products and load calculations, providing a professional service and high-quality products to guarantee a successful application.

The guide chosen for this application was our DA0116RC linear motion guide, alongside DS0116-CASSRC cassettes with stainless steel ball bearings and end stops. This guide has a high load rating, being able to support loads up to 360kg – perfect for this 300kg fridge. The DA0116RC can be cut to any desired length, using as many or as little cassettes as required for the individual specification, making it ideal for a bespoke project such as this.

 

 

If this patisserie trailer has given you some food for thought, and you would like to learn more about how Accuride can assist you in your latest project, get in touch today to speak to a member of our expert team.
