Coupling hook guides are available in various designs. These wearing plates are mounted below (and in some cases also above) the coupling hook. The coefficient of friction plays a minor role in this particular application. Instead, it is more important to achieve reliable wear behaviour, even though no lubrication is required.
faigle’s side bearers for coupling hook guides are made from extremely wear-resistant PAS-80Mo, which is ideally suited to this application. The material can also withstand all influences resulting from its use outdoors.
With a long and successful track record, the product has been approved by numerous rail regulators.
- Lubricant-free, maintenance-free
- Protects the coupling hook
- Physiologically safe
- And by eliminating the need for large amounts of lubricating grease, the product delivers financial as well as environmental benefits.
