A simple but effective way to reduce wear, is to use „metal-protection blocks“ for surface conditioning. The blocks are mounted in a way, that they
continuously glide on the surface, which should be protected, using spring pressure (like electric carbon brushes). In that way, a protective layer of 0,001 - 0,005 mm is applied. The
particles are integrated into the metal or plastic surface where they produce a highly stressable dry layer.
„Adhesion blocks“ with a friction coefficient of 0,3 - 0,7:
They are used in applications to be protected from wear but at the same time keeping the friction where it is necessary (driving gears, driving wheel, friction wheel). These wear-protection adhesion blocks have a standard friction coefficient of 0,6. Our in-house development and production allows us to manufacture adhesion blocks with higher or lower friction coefficients adapted to the respective application.
These blocks are used where slippage leads to abresive wear. Throught an increase in friction coefficents. A lot less slippage and wear is observed.
used as wear-protection on:
drive rollers, drive wheels, friction wheel applications etc.
We produce variable sizes and shapes of adhesive blocks. We can also produce exactly the size and shape you need for your application.
mounting of adhesive blocks
Adhesive blocks are held by brackets. These mounts are then installed on the machine where they are needed. For various mounting mechanisms we offer a wide spectrum of mounts for our blocks.
There are brackets with or without consumption display, also there are ones, which are fast refillable from the backside.
This spectrum of brackets ensures the block, to be held in the perfect position for the specific application.
If there is no perfect bracket for your application, we can also produce one wich exactly matches your needs.
Specific application examples for adhesive blocks are listed in applications.
