Thermoplastic materials are ideally suited for the manufacture of low friction bearings and rollers in a multitude of
For optimum performance, materials should exhibit the following characteristics:
Low coefficient of friction
High wear and abrasion resistance
Chemical and corrosion resistance
Physiologically safe if required
Basic engineering grades, such as PE1000, Nylon 6, Acetal and Polyester are usually suitable, however we can also offer premium
and filled grades where improved performance is required. The introduction of oil, wax and glass additives will enhance
mechanical properties for higher loads or elevated temperatures.
Manufactured on CNC and conventional lathes, our machining process results in improved tolerance and cost effectiveness over
injection moulded components, especially on small to medium sized batch requirements.
