Standard Linear Wipers

Standard Linear Wipers

 

Standard linear wipers for all-purpose application, for telescopic steel covers, uneven surfaces and hydrostatic guideways.

Way wipers are the most effective method to keep the guideways clean from chips, metal dust and abrasive agents. By protecting the guideways, they ensure the performance and productivity of machine tools. 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, and increased cutting feed rates and rapid traverse rates. Through experience and development we have produced a way wiper in an elastic material with metal supports which performs efficiently the task of keeping guideways clear.

Linear wipers

Standard strips length 560 mm and 1000mm.

Wipers suitable:

  • for all-purpose
  • for milled guideways
  • for ground guideways
  • for uneven surfaces
  • mounting on machine doors
  • for surfaces with gaps
  • for limited space applications
  • for circular operation

Linear wipers are available from stock.
Processed linear wipers, cut to length, drilled, milled, are available at short notice

Linear wipers for Telescopic Steel Covers:

They keep cover boxes clean and prevent dirt and swarf from entering. The wipers are spot welded, riveted or screwed to the cover boxes. As their edges are smooth they can be adapted perfectly to sheet metal surfaces. We can manufacture the wipers to customer’s own designs.

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.
