Cast Nylon Sheets or Plates are generally superior to extruded Nylon-6. Cast nylon 6 is often less expensive to produce, especially for large geometries, large cross-sections, etc. The casting process of cast nylon 6 results in less stress than the extrusion process, thus providing better dimensional stability. Custom irregularly shaped parts can be cast to "near-net" geometries thereby reducing machining time.
Some commercial applications of CAST NYLON can be given industry-wise, as under :
|Engineering||Gears, cams, sprockets, bushes, bearings, gaskets, pulleys, liners.|
|Textile||Loom pivot bearings, gears for loom and knitting machines, shuttles, rollers, cams and cam followers.|
|Metal||Bearings, bearings cages, slipper pads, gears, bushes, wear strips, rollers, eccentric rollers, wobble box inserts.|
Material Handing Equipment's
a) Cranes / Fork lifts / Conveyors
Crane sheaves, bearing pads, bushes, rollers, thrust washers, slides, guides, idle and drive sprockets, gears, wear strips and plates.
Wheel liners (tyres), wheels, bushes.
|Automobile||Wear rings, pads, swivel bushes, throttle linkages, bushes, shackle pin bushes.|
