This plunge platen is the ultimate way to get that sleek hand sanded look with crisp and even plunge lines every time without hand sanding. This is a huge time saver and an absolute must for those wanting to increase their production while increasing their quality of finished product.
Utilising all 4 corners of the platen with different sized radii consisting of 1.5mm, 2.5mm, 4.0mm and 6.0mm.
These are all machined by myself, and shot-peened for maximum lubricity.
These are designed to be a universal fit on most 2×72 and 2×48 4 wheel design belt grinders.
The platen itself measures 300x55x25mm
so far they are confirmed to fit on:

k110 hardened to 58-59 rockwell c. Has been tempered at 500°c to induce a secondary hardening process in this type of steel. This enables the platen to withstand higher than normal operating temperatures without losing hardness and wear resistance.
This also means that the platens have a higher wear and heat resistance than mild steel and is the perfect foundation for nitriding.
Gas nitrided by introducing ammonia into the nitriding chamber at 500°c, this causes the ammonia to crack from the heat releasing nitrogen onto the part. This process hardens the surface even further (10 thousandths deep).
This creates an extremely wear-resistant part, that is supported by the hardened k110. Whereas if the part was just unhardened mild steel, you will find that the part is extremely hard on the surface but will collapse in on itself as its core is too soft.
The last process that we do to these platens is called shot peening, promotes a high lubricity to the surface of the part. This reduces friction and heat build-up
all 3 of these processes coupled together create an astonishingly robust platen that can take extreme forces of friction.
