Mechanical & plant engineering: plastics for efficient processes

Even after heavy loads and countless operating hours, plant and machinery must continue to operate reliably. That means designers need a whole variety of materials depending on the application. These must, for instance, have good friction properties, high temperature resistance or thermal insulation. We offer plastics that are developed specifically for these requirements. We would be happy to advise you on the selection of suitable materials for your particular application.

Your advantages

  • Good slide friction reduces the energy consumption of your machinery
  • High process reliability
  • Slip-stick effects are avoided
  • Extended service intervals
  • Consistent quality of your products

Areas of application

  • Conveyor systems
  • Automation
  • Hydraulic wood and plastic presses
  • Tool and mould construction
  • Cutting machines

Product examples

GFRP tube sheet as wear plates for a heat exchanger

Tube sheets machined from Durostone® used as wear plates for a heat exchanger of a salt extraction plant permanently resists contact with the highly abrasive suspension of water, salt and other solids. The glass-fiber reinforced material remains functional with its particularly high resistance to chemicals even in long-term contact with the suspension. The wear plates with a diameter of up to 3,100 mm and a thickness of 150 mm have been machined on modern CNC systems according to customer specifications in tight tolerances.

Sliding elements for conveyor systems

Our LubX® product range offers high-performance sliding materials specifically developed for conveyor technology. Thanks to its outstanding sliding properties, conveyor systems equipped with LubX® need less energy, slip-stick effects are avoided and process stability is improved. Depending on the application we recommend LubX® CV, LubX® C, LubX® S or LubX® Ast black

Heat insulating materials

With their high thermal insulation, our Glastherm® heat insulating systems help to reduce the energy demand and hence the energy costs of your machines. Typical applications include hydraulic wood and plastic presses, tool and mould construction, tyre presses and rubber processing. More information about Glastherm®

Hydroma® Quality Cutting Boards

Wherever the cutting of soft materials is involved, Röchling Hydroma is present – be it as an initial equipment provider for cutting machine construction or for replacement demands. Hydroma® Quality Cutting Boards are available for all cutting machine makes, cutting processes and tools, e.g. swing-arm cutting machines, bridge-type cutting machines, travelling-head cutting machines, roller and bridge-type cutting presses.

Arrange technical advice

The performance and reliability of materials used in mechanical and plant engineering are influenced by a whole variety of factors. These factors must be taken into account in order to select the right materials. Examples:

  • Mechanical loading
  • Thermal loading
  • Slide partner
  • Cycle times
  • Contact with operating resources, parting agents, lubricants and detergents
  • Construction requirements, dimensions and tolerances
