Bronze Plates

Mecauto manufactures machined bronze wear plates that meet the exacting requirements and specifications supplied by our clients. All our wear plates are manufactured bespoke to clients’ designs using the highest quality bronzes in the European market from the Wisco foundry.

Our Bronze Wear Plates have been proven to run successfully in an extensive range of industrial applications.

BR Series Bronze Wear Plates

Our BR Series bronze plates are specifically intended to operate effectively in conditions of heavy loads at slow speeds where external lubrication is required. They have been proven to run successfully even at the high temperatures found in an extensive range of industrial applications.

More information on our BG series of bronze graphite wear plates and selflube wear plates which are self lubricating.

Bronze Slide Rails

Slide rails are widely used in industry across a large variety of different applications to control the motion of a load along a linear path. They are also commonly referred to by terms such as sliding guides, guideways, linear rails, guide bars, linear bearing rails and so forth. Mecauto’s bronze slide rails are manufactured to carry high loads, minimise friction between the surfaces and offer high levels of accuracy and a long service life.

Bronze alloys for wear plates

Bronze is an ideal metal for the manufacture of wear plates due to its low friction coefficient compared to other metals allowing a longer life of the assembly. The base material we use is rectangular bronze bars manufactured at Wisco – the largest and most complete bronze foundry in Europe.

As part of the Wisco group, Mecauto has immediate access to Europe’s most extensive stock of rectangular and square bars in the most demanded bronze alloys, high tensile brasses and aluminium bronzes. In addition, we offer quick turnaround for alloys and sizes not currently in stock to ensure the fastest delivery times of bronze wear plates in the market.

We manufacture a wide range of bronze wear plate formats and shapes, including.

  • Wear strips

  • L-gibs

  • V-gibs

  • V-block

  • Keeper blocks

  • Guide blocks

  • Stop blocks

  • Square gibs
