While many people are aware that bearings and plates play a major role in our development of infrastructure and in construction, not many are aware just how many different types of purpose-designed bearings and plates there are on the market. One particular bearing type that has become very prevalent is the Metagliss range. Metagliss is a range of self-lubricating sintered friction plates manufactured from sintered porous bronze, which is derived from powder metallurgy. When used in hydrodynamic or oily conditions, the plates can be impregnated with specialised oils or coated in a solid layer of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2), both of which allow for continuous, unhindered operation.
Of course, you will need to select the right Metagliss plates for your specific work environment or application. Metagliss plates can be provided in standard varieties which range in thickness from 4 mm to 20 mm with a dimension of 375 mm x 375 mm. We can also provide them in custom sizes and designs based on your specific requirements.
The Metagliss range of plates is used in a wide variety of industries including agriculture, transport, mechanics, automotive, and aerospace, but they are certainly not limited specifically to these fields. As these parts are required to offer exceptional durability and strength in a variety of different environments, they are tested thoroughly for quality and safety before being made available for sale.
