Bronze Bearing Liners
As heavy materials pass through minerals processing equipment, components begin to wear. Safeguard vital piece parts from damage with wear liners from U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine a heavy load bearing manufacturer.
What’s a metal liner?
Metal wear liners, which are sometimes called wear plates, are used in applications where friction between two parts or materials creates degradation. They’re consumable items that prevent excessive wear or damage to expensive equipment.
Typical machines that might benefit from wear plates or liners are:
- Casting Equipment
- Mill Equipment
- Heavy Earth Moving Equipment
- Mining Tools
- Punch Press Applications
- Bucket Scrapers
For wear liners to be successful, they must be manufactured to last. That’s where the experts of heavy load bearings at U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine come into play.
