Wear plates are used to guide and control linear motion when there are heavy forces to contend with. Originally developed for metal stamping dies they find many other uses such as in molds, special machines and heavy equipment.
SelfLube manufactures wear plates that conform to all industry standards (VDI, JIS, NAAMS, SMC). SelfLube Wear Plates come in a broad range of standard inch and metric sizes and are available in steel or aluminum bronze either with or without self-lubricating graphite.
If a standard wear plate won’t do, SelfLube can economically make custom configurations such as special sizes, hole patterns or graphite patterns.
Also, check out our Wear Strips section. Wear Strips are a similar product, but are available in a broader range of sizes.
