The primary function of wear strips is to be a linear bearing that guides and controls movement in metal stamping dies, molds, special machines and heavy equipment of all types. These are ideal for extrusion sizing plates.
SelfLube offers wear strips in metric and imperial sizing, including NAAMS sizes. Made of aluminum bronze and can be ordered with or without self-lubricating graphite.
For standard sizing and holes, please reference our catalog page.
Nonstandard sizing can be made by a custom configuration specifically designed for your project. Custom configurations can include special sizing, mounting hole patterns, graphite patterns, corners and internal cut outs and pockets.
