Datco Industries can machine and supply sheaves and rollers in cast nylon and other engineering plastics at its in-house CNC machine shop in any size or quantity of 1 – 1000 or more.
Commonly used to reduce weight and extend wire rope life on cranes and winches, nylon sheaves are lightweight, making it easier and safer for maintenance personnel to replace them when required.
Nylon sheaves are impervious to rust and salt water corrosion; the corrosion resistance is a nylon characteristic and not reliant on paint or other coatings.
A unique combination of mechanical and impact properties, along with excellent wear resistance, allows cast nylon sheaves to outlast their metallic counterparts.
Datco Industries can meet wide-ranging requirements for crane components in engineering plastics, including boom slide pads, outrigger pads and sheaves.
