THE Polyslide system of chain guides, slide profiles, and Murtfeldt automatic chain tensioners, from Dotmar EPP , is engineered to enhance productivity and minimise costs by avoiding such problems and reducing maintenance.
Designed to be integrated into a complete materials handling system or to operate individually as stand-alone items, the self-lubricating and highly wear-resistant products, made from the Polyslide engineering plastic, suit a broad range of industrial application.
Dotmar EPP Engineering development manager Aldo Mostacci says the modular Polyslide conveyor system provides excellent sliding properties, outstanding abrasion resistance and a very low coefficient of friction.
Furthermore, the high-performance system offers a high impact resistance and flexural strength (even at temperatures as low as -523°K), as well as resisting chemicals, corrosion, stress cracking and splintering.
Each pre-sized, compatible Polyslide component has a low specific weight, repels water and dirt, and dampens vibration and noise. The units are light and easy to handle and install, and are completely safe to use.
The Polyslide system has been designed to complement and support every type of chain. As a result, the range of roller chain and round link chain guides and slide profiles is extensive.
Profiles include: simplex, duplex, cage (with and without C-steel), flat-profile with C-steel and U-profile with C-steel. Closed cage and metal C-profile for galvanised and stainless steel C-profiles are also available.
Where space savings in power roller drives are required, double-decker guide rails for roller chains are most suitable. Such rails also help to reduce the cost of installation.
The Polyslide profile range includes bevel guides, T-guides, profiles with steel-C-profiles, guide rails and mouldings for round steel guide rails.
Spann-Box and Spann-Boy automatic chain tensioners from Murtfeldt Plastics complement the conveying system.
These self-tensioning devices permanently provide tensioning where required and, by following the chain elongation, prevent vibration and ensure a smooth conveying operation.
Dotmar EPP stocks a comprehensive range of parts and specialises in the machining of non-standard items, so product availability is maximised and delivery lead times are reduced.
