H.K. Founders produce flashing, grinding and lapping plates for use throughout the world. Cast iron is the preferred medium in H.K. Founders' own grades to meet market needs such as fast cutting, long plate life, ball size or ball materials.
Plates are available for a range of MACHINES in a variety of sizes.
Additional aids to ball productivity such as soft inlet WEAR BARS also available.
These are produced in Cast Iron to our own specifications, with both material and hardness being specified to suit customer specified parameters such as ball size, and preferences towards cut-rate or plate life.
Customer specific designs are also produced.
Plate designs can be modified to customer requirements, including modification for wear bars.
