Pimpled tray without interlock
for 4D single-brush sander
An interlocking spike plate is used to attach polishing pads, sanding discs or brushes to the sander. The spike plate is fitted with small spikes or teeth that hold the work accessories firmly in place, preventing them from coming loose during operation of the sander. The absence of an interlocking mechanism means that accessories are simply fixed by placing them on the platen, without the need for an additional locking mechanism.
When used with polishing pads, the spike plate provides closer contact between the pad and the surface to be polished, improving polishing efficiency. For cleaning or stripping jobs, it is also useful for securing abrasive discs or brushes, allowing unwanted dirt or coatings to be removed effectively.
As for when to consider changing the pimple plate, here are some signs that it may be worn or damaged and need replacing:
1. Worn pins: if the pins on the platter are worn, broken or collapsed, the accessories may not be held properly in place, which may lead to excessive vibration or the accessories coming loose during use.
2. Structural damage: if the spiked platter is cracked, deformed or structurally damaged, it may no longer hold accessories securely.
3. Poor attachment of accessories: if you notice that the pads, sanding discs or brushes are not firmly attached to the platen, this may be a sign that the pimple plate is worn and needs to be replaced.
4. Deterioration in performance: if the overall performance of the sander seems to be declining, with less satisfactory polishing, cleaning or stripping results, this could be linked to a worn pimple plate that is no longer securing the accessories properly.
It is important to follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding the maintenance and replacement of single-brush sander parts. If you notice any of the signs mentioned above, or if you have any doubts about the condition of the spiked plate, it is advisable to replace it to ensure optimum performance and avoid damaging the machine or work accessories.
