Way Wipers Without Metal Facings to Drawings
Custom and Common Shaped Way Wipers to Drawing

Custom molded
VAJ way wipers are produced to the customer’s metric drawing in any shape and dimension (up to 1 meter), and in a single piece, complete with mounting holes. The minimum quantity required is 10 pieces. For smaller quantities it may be possible to offer a customer an adaptation from an existing molded way wiper design considering the many designs already produced. It is essential, however, that we have your metric drawings of the slideways to be cleaned.

Fabricated way wipers
VAJ way wipers can be produced from your metric drawing or a worn wiper. There is no minimum quantity requirement for a fabricated wiper. See below for common shapes.

Common Shaped (Custom) Way Wipers
VAJ way wipers can be produced to your metric drawing in any shape and dimension (up to 1 meter), and in a single piece, complete with mounting holes. But, you may not have to re-invent the wheel. Below are 6 common shaped Way Wipers. We just need your metric dimensions as indicated on the drawing below. There may even be an existing wiper that you can modify or adapt for your application. Call us at 800-466-4648 or 203-230-1012 for assistance, pricing, or questions.
