Anchor plates are floor fixing elements, which are exposed by either rectangular, oval or square plates. Such anchor plates can be made as flat plates or perforated anchor plates. When it comes to the right choice of material, anchor plates can be made of normal steel or stainless steel.
What exactly are anchor plates? This is the question you have to ask yourself if you want to screw a railing directly to the floor or wall. Because only an anchor plate can really ensure secure fastening. Anchor plates can be manufactured in a wide variety of shapes. Starting with stainless steel or normal structural steel, anchor plates can be welded to fit a stainless steel post or to a steel railing, which can be refined later. Basically it can be said that anchor plates can be manufactured as a round form or as a rectangular plate form or square form. If the anchor plate already has the appropriate holes, the appropriate screws and dowels can be inserted very easily. If the fixing of anchor plates is involved, various fixing methods are used. The most common method of fixing anchor plates is dowelling to concrete floors or concrete foundations. This involves drilling holes in the concrete and inserting dowels. For light fixings this can be a plastic anchor or a heavy-duty impact anchor. This easily absorbs the tensile forces and ensures that the anchor plates have the hold they need. In recent years, another method of fixing anchor plates has been added to the range of fixings, namely gluing in with two-component mortar adhesive. This also involves drilling holes in the concrete and then inserting the threaded rods with the adhesive. After hardening, the fixed anchor plates can then be subjected to high loads.

The production of anchor plates
In the last section, the production of anchor plates made of steel or stainless steel will be discussed. Different processes can be examined. Now you have to decide whether you want a clean and precise cut edge on the anchor plates or whether a flame cut is completely sufficient for you. When cutting anchor plates with a laser or laser machine, the raw plate is placed on the laser and the program is loaded. Now the laser can cut out the desired contour of the anchor plate. You can cut out as many anchor plates as you need. The cut of the laser cutting edge is usually serh clean, absolutely true to size and without reworking. Unfortunately, this is different with a plasma torch cut. The cutting costs are lower than with a laser cut, but the dimensional accuracy is not as accurate. The torch cut with a plasma torch is much less clean and the cut edges on the underside of the anchor plates have slag adhering. This slag must be ground off by reworking. This often generates additional costs in the production of anchor plates, because otherwise the plates would look unclean. We have now been able to give you a brief overview of all two common processes and show you how anchor plates can be manufactured economically today. You would now have to decide which qualities of the cut edges are sufficient for your applications? Take your time to have a look around our online shop and search for your anchor plates made of steel or stainless steel.
