Profiles, guides and slide bars

Chain guides, belt guides and slide profiles made from Murtfeldt plastics guarantee smooth motion sequences in plants and machines with the advantages of self-lubrication and low-noise operation.

Where there is friction, there is wear. Regular lubrication is essential wherever chains run on metal guides in order to counteract wear and noise generation. The self-lubricating chain guides, belt guides and slide profiles made from our tried-and-tested Murtfeldt “S”® and “S”1000® plastics are more than just a cost-effective alternative to metal solutions. As slide bars for roller chains, round link chains, and belts, they combine optimal running properties with maximum wear resistance and guarantee low-noise and smooth running operation. This protects chains and belts and helps to minimise the maintenance needed for your plants and machines.
