Timco Machined Parts on Mining Equipment
Mining equipment is exposed to extreme weather conditions including the heat of the desert, cold of the arctic and wet conditions found in tropical climates. Timco plastic components are ideal for use on mining equipment. Parts can be quickly and accurately machined to fit a specific need, and the equipment manufacturer and user can be assured long part life.
Use of lubricants in dusty environments should be avoided. If lubricants are used, an abrasive mix of oil and dirt can damage parts. Because many of our plastic components are self-lubricating, part wear, mating part wear, overall equipment maintenance requirements and mining equipment downtime are all reduced.
Timco has decades of experience designing and manufacturing wear and structural plastic parts for mining equipment. Our sales engineers will work with you to uncover all the design and load requirements of your part. We will help you to select the correct material and manufacturing process for your component to assure your Timco part will function in your mining application.
