PROFILES & GUIDES
Profiles & guides for various industries
Plastmass Group offers ready solutions – in manufacture and supply of plastic profile guides. We also produce the profiles of various cross section forms on individual orders in strict conformity with customer's drawings.
Slideways from PLASTMASS™ UHMWPE and PLASTMASS™ HMWPE – are the best solution for the improvement of performances and the retrenchment of maintenance expenses for roller chains and belts or round belts.
THE SOLUTION FOR WEAR PROBLEMS OF PARTS IN FRICTION
The main purpose of PLASTMASS™ antifriction materials is to solve parts wear problems in friction / sliding assemblies and mechanisms, replacing standard materials such as: bronze, polyamide (caprolon), fluoroplastic, textolite, polyacetal (POM-C), CAM, cast iron, PTFE tape and other materials in equipment and machines. Designed for the manufacture of wear-resistant parts: bearings, bushings, liners, rollers, running nuts, worm wheels, etc.
PLASTMASS™ PU is a MDI-based polyurethane elastomer with hardness of 70, 80 and 90 Shore.
PLASTMASS™ UHMWPE/HMWPE is an ultra-high molecular weight / high molecular weight polyethylene of a very high degree of polymerization with the addition of special additives.
At movement of chains on metal slideways friction takes place which leads to rapid wear. Moreover, for silent, smooth run and long service life regular lubrication is required. PLASTMASS™ UHMWPE/HMWPE slideways protect chains, guarantee an optimum run and maximum wearing property due to high resistance to scuffing and extended work without lubrication. They are a cheaper alternative to fluoroplastic.
Increase the service life of equipment from 4 times and above due to the high resistance of the material to shock and abrasive loads. Improving sanitary and hygienic working conditions in industrial premises by preventing the leakage of grain from transport equipment, reducing backfill and noise. Reduction of metal consumption and labor costs in the repair of gravity equipment, as well as the cleaning of bins and silos from product residues after unloading.
Increase the flow rate of difficult to flow products from bunkers and silos due to the absence of sticking to the working surface. No corrosion of metal surfaces.
ADVANTAGES OF PLASTMASS™ UHMWPE/HMWPE SLIDEWAYS
High wear resistance.
Excellent sliding, work without lubrication.
High chemical resistance to aggressive environments.
The highest impact strength and fracture strength in a wide temperature range.
The vibration damping, the absorption of continuous and impact noise.
Absence of moisture absorption. The stability of properties and dimensions in a damp environment.
Physiological safety. It is not dangerous in case it contacts with food products.
No freezing or sticking.
High electrical and thermal insulation.
STEEL C- PROFILES
In contrast to metals, PLASTMASS™ UHMWPE/HMWPE thermoplastic elongate or shrink with temperature fluctuations. The most simple and effective method of slideway’s fastening– is with the help of steel C-shaped profiles. They are reliable fastens, ensuring freedom of movement of the slideways, ease its replacement. If necessary, they can be welded or screwed together.
Simple installation and dismantle of slideways.
Quick replacement in case of wear.
Easy alignment of the slideway system.
Installation of steel C-profile for screwing without warping.
Profiles and slideways for laminated, roller and round link chains are widely used in many industries: packaging equipment, various mechanical components, bottling lines, conveyors of cross-section submission on timber production, the chemical-pharmaceutical industry, production of foodstuff, paper, glass and many others.
Advantages of PLASTMASS™ UHMWPE/HMWPE C-PROFILES
Substantial increase of industrial ratings of modular tapes, conveyor chains and gear belts.
Significant decrease of expenditures due to efficiency and long resource of work of the material.
Economy of temporary, financial and labour costs due to simplicity in service and absence of necessity in execution of off-schedule works on repair of the equipment.
You can use ready-made options and order the production of plastic slideways of any configuration based on the drawings or sketches.
