Applications for Construction Equipment

Heavy duty construction equipment like cranes, concrete pumpers, and aerial work platforms benefit from using Timco Technical Plastic components for applications like sheaves and wear pads.  These parts are incredibly strong and durable while also being lightweight, corrosion resistant and create little to no wear on mating components.  The elasticity of nylon sheaves allows for a larger contact area between wire rope and sheave groove which spreads the load  and reduces the stress and wear on the rope, saving cost and downtime.  Plastic wear pads  are widely used to provide smooth and quiet operation in telescoping equipment and special grades are available where stick slip is a concern such as fire truck ladders or aerial work platforms. Other wear components like slide pads, rollers, wheels, and structural applications like outrigger floats and outrigger pads can 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 manufacturing plastic parts for world class OEM’s 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.
