Ul­ti­mate per­for­mance across the board

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PLASTICS -

Easy han­dling safe Wear­lon roller wheels pro­vide ul­ti­mate per­for­mance on ex­pen­sive pro­duc­tion sur­faces. Hard-wear­ing cast polyamide is in­creas­ingly used to cost- ef­fi­ciently fab­ri­cate in­dus­trial cas­tors, pal­let rollers, flanged and grooved wheels and idler wheels on ma­te­ri­als han­dling ma­chin­ery, in­door con­veyor ve­hi­cles, trans­port wag­ons and as an al­ter­na­tive to met­als and rub­ber in goods trans­port.

The ma­te­rial’s low weight, low fric­tion and re­sult­ing ease of han­dling means polyamide wheels and rollers have far less dam­ag­ing or mark­ing im­pact on ex­pen­sive floors in process ar­eas, while also of­fer­ing OH&S ben­e­fits with their easy rol­la­bil­ity. Their re­sis­tance to chem­i­cals means they stand up well to use in lab­o­ra­to­ries, haz­ardous stor­age and pro­duc­tion ar­eas in many in­dus­tries.

The Wear­lon fam­ily of polyamides from Cut To Size Plas­tics is suit­able for OEM use and clean and green metal re­place­ment in ap­pli­ca­tions in­clud­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing and process engi­neer­ing, min­ing and en­ergy, oil and gas, trans­port and con­struc­tion, food, bev­er­age and pri­mary pro­duc­tion and water and waste water.

The Wear­lon fam­ily – in­cor­po­rat­ing the glob­ally proven LiNNOTAM range of cast polyamides from in­ter­na­tional man­u­fac­turer and fab­ri­ca­tor of engi­neer­ing plas­tics Licharz – is par­tic­u­larly suit­able for:

• Op­er­a­tion in hu­mid and wet en­vi­ron­ments.

• Op­er­a­tions in ex­treme tem­per­a­tures.

• Op­er­a­tions where chem­i­cal ex­po­sure is an is­sue. The ma­te­rial can be eco­nom­i­cally fab­ri­cated in al­most any size, says Pat Flood, NSW Man­ager of Cut To Size Plas­tics, which man­u­fac­tures com­po­nents for ap­pli­ca­tions across Aus­trala­sia from its Head Of­fice in Syd­ney where fa­cil­i­ties in­clude CNC ma­chin­ing fa­cil­i­ties cou­pled with Gibb­sCAM and Solid­works soft­ware.

“Wear­lon ex­cels in ap­pli­ca­tions in­volv­ing hy­gienic and durable trans­mis­sion of me­chan­i­cal force, move­ment of in­dus­trial com­po­nents and min­imis­ing fric­tion in pro­duc­tion and ma­te­ri­als han­dling pro­cesses.

“Spe­cific for­mu­la­tions of polyamides are avail­able for wheels and rollers of­fer­ing a high de­gree of durable elas­tic­ity that en­sures any flat spots which de­velop un­der static load be­come quickly and re­li­ably round again. In this way, vi­bra­tionfree run­ning can be achieved af­ter a very short dis­tance.”

Ex­treme Pres­sure (EP) wheels can also be fab­ri­cated from polyamide, per­form­ing best when used in clean ap­pli­ca­tion where for­eign mat­ter or ma­te­rial is not ly­ing on the floor or track.

“The Wear­lon polyamide fam­ily of­fers ex­cel­lent tough­ness, low co­ef­fi­cient of fric­tion and good abra­sion re­sis­tance, mak­ing it an ideal re­place­ment for a wide va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als from metal to rub­ber,” says Flood.

Cut To Size Plas­tics Pty Ltd has been sup­ply­ing Engi­neer­ing Plas­tics to Aus­tralian and In­ter­na­tional cus­tomers for over 35 years. The com­pany is com­mit­ted to meet­ing Aus­tralian and In­ter­na­tional Qual­ity Stan­dards and to work­ing within the guide­lines is­sued by State work­cover au­thor­i­ties.

The com­pany holds ex­ten­sive stocks of Nylon, LiNNOTAM GLIDE, Del­rin, Ac­etal, Te­flon and UHMWPE com­bined with HDPE, PVC and Polypropy­lene to com­ple­ment ser­vice to in­dus­try. The com­pany also has ac­cess to the most ad­vanced engi­neer­ing plas­tics world­wide.

It will cut it, rout it, bend it or ma­chine it, all to in­di­vid­ual spec­i­fi­ca­tions. Its com­pre­hen­sive CNC ma­chin­ing fa­cil­ity at Yen­nora, cou­pled with Gibb­sCAM and Solid­works soft­ware makes it easy to deal with Cut To Size Plas­tics – your draw­ings go into its com­puter – then to the CNC ma­chines.
