Bearing Plates / Wear Plates (Bronze metal) are used for heavy load bearing system having low velocity of movement, reciprocating, oscillating and intermittent motions E.g. pipe support system, bridge bearing plates etc. Bronze Bearing Plate / Bronze Wear Plate is used to guide and control linear motion of heavy loads.
Various types of bronze bearing plate are available:
a) Plain Type and
b) Self-lubricating Type.
a) Plain Bronze Bearing Plate / Bronze Wear Plate: These wear plates are machined to close tolerance and provided with grease holes and grooves for external lubrication.
These bearing plates acts as excellent bearing surface between flat moving surfaces and are used in guides, supports, and controls linear motion of heavy forces.
b) Self-lubricating Bronze Bearing Plate / Bronze Wear Plate: These bearing / wear plates are machined to close tolerance and provided with mounting holes. Self-lubricating bronze bearing plate / bronze wear plate is used in hard-to-reach areas where lubrication is difficult and can be used over long periods without maintenance at elevated temperatures. Self-lubrication in bronze wear plate is achieved by providing plugs of graphite. These graphite plugs provide continuous lubrication.
These bearing plates are used in guides, supports, and controls linear motion of heavy forces.
Metalcomp Overseas offers fully machined self-lubricating bronze bearing plate / bronze wear plate and plain bronze bearing plate / bronze wear plate with lubricating grooves for a wide range of sizes and for diverse range of applications and products. These bearing plates are custom made to Client's requirements against their specifications and drawings.
Manufacturing Standard: Bronze Bearing Plates / Bronze wear Plates are made as per Client's specification and drawing.
