Plastics in mechanical and plant engineering

Due to their properties and advantages, technical plastics are being used more and more frequently in mechanical engineering and are increasingly replacing components made of steel. The advantages are obvious: PE-HMW or PE-UHMW plastics are much lighter than steel and do not oxidize. Furthermore, they are less susceptible to wear and therefore have a much longer service life. Modern plastics are very resistant, have favorable sliding resistance behavior and high abrasion and wear resistance.

The applications in machine and plant engineering are highly individual – as the machines and plants themselves. Since one machine is rarely like another, the requirements for the plastic or the geometry of the components are also special in 90% of cases. From standard components to complex special solutions, with LuxTek you have the right partner at your side.
