Nylon

Machined Parts for High Performance

Because corrosion can lead to structural failure, manufacturers must prevent it at all costs. Food manufacturers need parts that are easy to clean and non-contaminating. Packaging manufacturers require long lasting parts that hold up in high speed manufacturing environments.
There’s a simple solution to these – and many other – problems: Nylon. Bearings, gears and wear pads made from Nylon are high-performing alternative to metal parts and assemblies. When you switch to Nylon, you’ll not only notice that the transition is seamless, but that Nylon parts offer numerous benefits as well.

Reasons to Switch to Nylon

  • Lightweight (just 1/7 the weight of bronze)

  • Less need for lubrication

  • Noise dampening

  • Improved wear resistance

  • Corrosion resistant
