Background

TIMBER INDUSTRY

When it comes to operational efficiency and occupational safety, reliable machine components are the be-all and end-all. Because in the wood industry, different working conditions occur at the same time. During the processing of wood, plastic machine components are exposed to dirt, thermal loads and mechanical forces. Thanks to their high mechanical strength, our plastics can withstand strong impacts, vibrations and other direct forces. In addition, the nature of our plastics makes them resistant to dust and coarse dirt. The abrasive particles typical of wood processing therefore hardly have any influence on the service life of our low-wear plastic parts. The impact strength and breaking strength of our plastics are also convincing when used as machine components for the wood industry and ensure safe operation.
