Wear Plate-Slider Components

Wear Plate

  1. The purpose of wear plate is to reduce the friction caused by slider movement, ensure smooth slider movement and thus increase mold service life;
  2.  There are 2 types of wear plate: ① bottom wear plate and ② back wear plate;
  3. 5mm higher than the mold plate, the bottom wear plate is fixed on the mold plate and has direct contact with the slider;
  4. 0.5mm higher than the slider, the back wear plate is fixed on the slider and has direct contact with the wedge;
  5. The wear plate usually measures 8mm – 10mm in height;
  6. The contact area between the wear plate and the slider / wedge needs to be larger than 80%; when the slider is too big, wear plate can be divided into several smaller plates depending on slider size;
  7. The wear plate applies the SK-3 material, which needs to be preheated.
