Rubber Bounded Spacers are used on Slitting Lines in order to improve “dragging” of coil and ejection of strips during slitting.
Rubber bounded spacers are usually manufactured at a differnet diameter ( Male and Female ) in order to garantee a more precise and quality slitting process.
The core of the spacers, is made in tempered steel with a hardness up to 58 +/- 2 HRC in order to garantee maximum durability.
The external ring, is made in a “soft” material that garantees a good grip on the coil surface. ( also Oiled coils ). Materials used are Nitrile rubber (NBR – PERBUNAN etc.) or POLYURETHANE at a specific hardness, depending on coils specs.
Rubber bounded spacers are manufactured with the same requirements as knives in therms of form, dimensions and geometric tolerances.
Rubber can be manufactured in multiple colors according to the customer requirements, in order to easily distinguish between different diameters.
