Plastics Make Machines Faster, Quieter, and More Reliable
Machine parts made of lightweight, cost-effective materials like UHMW, acetal, and nylon are built to withstand friction and wear. They require little or no lubrication, dampen sound, and reduce the strain on motors that power moving parts. And, in complementary components like guide rails and wear strips, they extend the lifespan of chains and more expensive metal parts.
Consider using performance plastics for:
Bearings and bushings
Guide rails/wear strips
