Applications for the Forestry Industry

The strength and durability of Timco Technical Plastics make them ideal for wear and structural parts used on equipment to harvest trees and transport them to the mills. As mentioned previously, plastics can withstand the wide range of environmental conditions required by this outdoor industry. Our parts are lightweight, corrosion resistant and easily designed to fit specific equipment. Because many of the Timco materials are self-lubricating, maintenance requirements are reduced. The plastic materials also cause little to no wear on the contacted surface, leading to reduced cost to maintain the entire system. For example, when Timco sheaves are used in place of steel ones, the wire rope will last to two to three times longer. We have decades of experience designing and manufacturing plastic parts for forestry equipment. Our team will work with you to uncover all the design and load requirements of your part and will help select the best material for your component. Our extensive engineering services make sure your composite parts will function in your logging application.
