Formed Wipers Customized

Shaped way wipers and linear wipers according customer specifications

 

The protection of guideways has always been of considerable interest to the designers and manufactures of such machines. Especially as guideways are now subject to higher forces because of the improved performance of cutting tools, increased cutting feed rates and rapid traverse rates. Through experience and development we have produced a way wiper in an elastic material which performs the task of keeping guideways clear of swarf, dust and all other abrasive materials found in the workshop environment more efficiently than any other type on the market.

Formed Wipers/Wipers in accordance with a customer drawing:

These wipers are constructed to the customer drawings in any shape and dimension, in a single piece, with mounting holes and holes allowing for taper gib adjustment. The minimum quantity is 100. For smaller quantities it may be possible to offer a modification to an existing wiper design, as many designs already exist. However, it is essential that a drawing of the guideways to be cleaned is available.

Technical Specifications

Design:
Unless otherwise indicated in the drawing the wipers are made of synthetic rubber with a moulded steel insert.
Material properties of wiper lip:
  • Highly abrasion-resistant
  • Temperature resistant from −40°C to +100°C, short term up to 140°C.
  • For temperatures up to 200°C (permanent) or where the wipers are exposed to particularly aggressive coolants or acids, they can also be made from other elastomers, such as FPM
  • Very good mechanical characteristics
  • Resistant to coolants and mineral oils
  • Resistant to microorganisms
Dimensional stability:
The wipers are manufactured in special moulds, ensuring repeat-order accuracy.
Protection coating:
All wipers – except the stainless steel ones – are provided with a coating as a protection against chips and corrosion
Preload
All wipers shown in relaxed position. The recommended preload is specified in each drawing.
