Applications for Construction Equipment

Heavy duty construction equipment like cranes, concrete pumpers, and aerial work platforms sees a variety of benefits from the use of Timco Technical Plastic components. These parts are incredibly strong and durable while also being lightweight, corrosion resistant and causing little to no wear on mating surfaces. The elasticity of plastic sheaves results in a larger contact area between wire rope and sheave groove causing specific loading to be greatly reduced, and the wire rope to experience reduced stress. This is due to the fact that the load bearing contact area on a nylon sheave is 10 times larger than on a steel sheave.  When Timco sheaves are used in place of steel ones, the wire rope will last considerably longer.  Many other bearing and wear applications like slide pads, rollers and wheels, as well as structural applications like outrigger floats and outrigger pads, also benefit from the light weight, long part life and self-lubrication of WS Hampshire’s machined components. In fact, outrigger pads made of our Timcolite™ material are guaranteed to not break when used in normal conditions! We have decades of experience designing and manufacturing plastic parts for construction equipment and our team will work with you to uncover all the design and load requirements in your application to ensure that the right material is used and will function properly.
