Equipment manufacturers monitor closely their product's efficiency and overall performance.
With various engineering materials available on the market, which bring the most value? The widely available and at the lowest price or a bespoke material for specific use?
Designed to minimise machine downtime and maximise production, Nylacast offers premium quality engineered products through deliverance of low weight, low friction material properties.
Before specifying the best suited material, Nylacast’s engineers will evaluate the applications needs and environment before recommendation.
One example of Nylacast’s componentry is a diablo roller. Found in various equipment, its sole purpose is to guide rope. Traditionally made from rust prone steel the diablo roller required regular maintenance and replacement due to corrosion. This also causes the rope used to increase wear.
A diablo roller is made to continue the same task with Nylacast’s materials technology while eliminating corrosion, maintenance need and additional protection. Self-coloured and 1/7th the weight of a steel diablo roller, multiplying the weight with the amount of diablo rollers demonstrates a significant reduction in overall machine weight. This can help enhance efficiency and performance through reduced power requirement.
By understanding this example we can see how the correct material selection, engineering know-how, and product development can result in increased end-user benefits by operating the same task with quality efficiency and performance.
