Precision Plate Experts, SelfLube to Feature Its Precision Wear Plate Line at Fabtech 2016

28 Oct 2016

SelfLube, the leading U.S. manufacturer of precision mold and die components will be exhibiting at this year's Fabtech Expo. The company will be showcasing its inch and metric wear plates. Just recently, the company announced that it has made over 1,000,000 precision plates, a significant milestone that firmly established SelfLube not only as the leading U.S. manufacturer of mold and die components, but the experts in precision plates as well. 

Wear plates are an ideal solution for guiding and controlling movement. "Toolmakers and tool designers find them very useful for a number of reasons. They come in a broad range of sizes and can support very heavy loads, for example, one medium sized wear plate can support nearly 100 tons," explains Phil Allor, CEO of SelfLube. "Their ruggedness and durability allows them to typically outlast the tool they are installed, making them extremely popular with designers."

SelfLube Wear Plates are available in solid aluminum bronze and steel, with or without the option of graphite. Its product line consists of many different types which include:

  • Inch (N Series, A Series, grease groove, Cam Dwell, sizing plates)
  • Metric (NAAMS, VDI, JIS, SMC, Cam Dwell, SESW/SESWT, STW/STWT)

The Fabtech Expo will be November 16-18 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The expo is expecting nearly 28,000 attendees with over 1,300 exhibitors in the metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing industries. SelfLube will be exhibiting at Booth: C14079.
