How to design the perfect sliding plate for your application:
With the 3D printing service tool, ordering wear-resistant plastic sliding plates takes only a few seconds. Just upload the CAD model, select the material properties you want, and place the finished configuration in the shopping cart. The customized iglide® sliding plate will be ready to ship within one to three days of order completion and can be installed immediately upon receipt.
Our service life calculator for sliding elements made of wear-resistant iglide® plastics allows precise determination of how long the sliding plates will continue to function under the environmental parameters indicated before they need to be replaced. The iglide® Expert Tool was developed to calculate the service life of plain bearing bushings and can be used to approximate the service life of sliding plates. Just make sure that the surface speed (m/s) and surface pressure (N/mm²) match.
