The steel sole plates for Bemo Rail’s short rail pieces are designed for long life. If the substructure has subsided, the plates are measured for height and then milled to the correct thickness.
The function of base plates is very important in rail installation systems for overhead cranes, harbour cranes or gantries. The purpose of the plates is to obtain a solid construction.
In some cases, the supporting surface of the slots is permanently deformed. Here, a choice can be made to apply (local) additional filler material in the form of 1 or 2 mm sheet metal, or to mill the filler plate in a different thickness.
The latter option is by far the most preferable as the gradient in height is smooth rather than stepped and the plate consists of a single part that is easy to fix. The dimensions of the milled shims are determined prior to the welding process.
