Gorplate™ - Stainless Steel Sliding Plate Cover
Ideally suited for protection from hot chips and weld splatter, Gorplate stainless steel protective covers provide an additional level of protection not available using conventional fabric bellows. This innovative system of stainless steel plates and monofilament connections creates a light weight cost effective system to protect linear rails, ways and machine elements from damage. The uni-directional monofilament plate connection provides uniform plate expansion in a low profile design.
Overall cover depth is approximately 1 inch with the capability of manufacturing cover widths as narrow at 7 inches. For use in horizontal and vertical applications, Gorplate is an ideal alternative to sliding plate systems that are prone to locking.
