- These sliding plates are intended for use as simple supports.
- The PTFE - coated steel plates offer by the high load capacity, depending on the type, a maximum capacity of up to 3.000kN and versatile applications.
Maintenance-free sliding plate for welding
If longitudinal motions are involved for sliding bearings, not just rotation and lifting, the use of more than one single sliding plate is required. We provide you with maintenance-free units in any quantity, which are mainly intended as simple bearings to weld on. The sliding plates can be ordered round or rectangular and are made from St37 steel as a carrier material with a PTFE coating on one side as a sliding surface.
The sliding plates from GLT have a high resistance to load. Depending on the type, they can support between 500 and 3000 Kilonewton. Further technical characteristics worth mentioning:
The slide path is determined by the size of the equipment-side head plate with a stainless steel slide sheet to be welded on. This should have a thickness of at least 2 millimetres and a roughness depth of 4 Rz and is supplied according to your wishes by GLT.
The thickness of our sliding plates is always 10 millimetres. Otherwise, the six standard sizes on offer for our rectangular sliding plates range between 100 and 300 millimetres in length and 100 and 200 millimetres in width. Outside of our standard range, LHG also supplies you with sliding plates to meet your needs in a range of shapes, sizes, thicknesses and load values. Execution in special materials is possible easily, for example, for use in food and medical technology or for chemical plants.
In the standard version the GLT sliding plate is welded to the substructure, whereby the PTFE coated side must face up. The plastic sliding surface must be covered during the welding process. You should also refrain from making a long weld seam to prevent the sliding coating at the edge from being damaged by overheating – tack welds of a maximum of eight millimetres suffice.
If they are fitted in this manner, the GLT sliding plates meet all challenges entirely maintenance-free. In special cases we can also provide them to you in a screw-on design. In summary: We always consider individual requests. Let us know what you want – we will aways aim to provide it as optimally as possible!
