About

Accuride is a global presence with extensive resources, a deep understanding of design and manufacturing, and a reputation as a pioneer in the development of quality movement solutions.

Our History

In 1962, Accuride began as a small tool and die shop producing top-quality slides for tape drives and copy machines. Filling a market need for precision slide products, Accuride rapidly expanded, growing the product line and moving into a broad range of markets and applications.

Today, Accuride has nearly 1 million square feet of manufacturing space around the world and is the largest company in the world dedicated to the innovative design and manufacture of sliding hardware.

Expertise

Over the years, Accuride has developed an unparalleled level of engineering expertise in product design, tooling, and manufacturing. We guide our clients from the initial concept to product integration.

  • Product Design
    Accuride offers a wide variety of off-the-shelf and custom solutions. We work closely with our customers to develop practical and cost-effective solutions. Whether it's a single component or an entire assembly, we have the resources to make it happen. Prototypes can be made in zinc, aluminum, plastic, and steel.
  • Tooling
    Our North American facilities feature the largest tooling operation in the industry. Accuride's technical staff builds and maintains all tools including progressive dies and roll forms. Our standardized methods ensure identical tools and manufacturing results at all facilities worldwide.
  • Manufacturing
    Accuride can reliably handle projects of any size. We purchase more than 100,000,000 pounds of steel per year and have in-house steel mills that offer the advantage of design and production flexibility. As the largest zinc plater in the world, we plate over 75,000,000 sq. ft. of material per year. Accuride was the first slide manufacturer to electrocoat ball bearing slides and we've developed finishes that vigorously resist corrosion.
