Ultimate performance across the board
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.
