A slide plate is a plate that is attached to a machine to enable smooth sliding.
Ideally, the material should have excellent abrasion resistance and be replaced infrequently, since most industrial equipment involves sliding movements. A slide plate can be used in a wide range of applications, from small objects, such as electronic devices, to large objects, such as buildings.
Slide plates are important components in many industrial fields.
In the machining field, they are used on the opposite side of slides when working with machines that slide. In the electronics and other fields, there are many situations that require smooth slide mechanisms, including semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
They can also be used in combination with attachments to enable smooth slide operation.
Since slide plates are constantly subjected to sliding motion, materials with excellent abrasion resistance are selected. In addition, surface treatments such as induction hardening are used to increase the service life. As materials with excellent wear resistance, s45c and ss400, which are carbon steels that are easily available and easy to process, are used for metals.
Slide plates made of resin, which has superior strength, are also manufactured, reducing the risk of damage to the products to be slid, and expanding the range of their use. Oilless types, which do not require oil for a long life, reduce the need for maintenance and are easy to use, expanding the range of applications.
In the field of architecture, they are used as part of the structure of seismic isolation of high-rise buildings to stop continuous shaking, which is a drawback of seismic isolation. They are also used for angle shift when attached to photographic equipment such as cameras.
