If you are experiencing shock issues anywhere in your mill operations where logs or lumber are impacting equipment then you need to consider a Redco Deadplate solution. Redco Deadplate is a variety of polyurethane specifically for shock-absorption applications and is primarily used in sawmills. The application commonly takes place where logs or lumber impact part of the conveyor and change direction. This impact for hours each day without Deadplate can cause shock and vibration which damages equipment.
Redco Deadplate is commonly supplied in a sandwich made up of three parts. The point of impact is the “face plate” and this is usually 3/8″ or 1/2″ thick Redco 500 polyurethane or steel. The middle part of the sandwich is the Deadplate itself and then there is a backing plate usually 3/8″ or 1/2″ steel. All three components are bonded together. The cost of a Deadplate solution varies, typically running between $2000-$3500 per sandwich. For more information on the Redco Deadplate product click here.
