Gantiel Vensott stocks a diverse range of nylon products suited to gear and cog manufacturing. The widely used nylon for these products being cast nylon, which has a high molecular weight to extruded nylon and therefore is more dimensionally stable making it easier to machine.
Available in both natural and black, the stock sizes of nylon rod, sheet and tube can be discussed with sales staff for assistance. There are also specially formulated grades available upon request to be used in harsh or high impact load applications.
The gear cutting capabilities can produce both helicoil and bevelled gears. Nylon gears provide a great alternative to bronze gears in medium speed applications. Nylon gears and cogs can be used for gates or doors involving high abrasion and high impact.
Nylon gears are perfect to be used as a sacrificial gears or cogs that is in a breakdown or misalignment within a machine, the gear will come under extreme pressure, then only one gear is sacrificed (destroyed) saving all the surrounding parts from damage and not destroying the entire gearbox, thus providing a tremendous cost saving.
There is a variety of nylon products available depending on the environment in which the gears and cogs are being used. Plasticisers, lubricants and heat stabilisers are added to improve the nylon performance of the specialised nylon products range.
For example, to reduce the use of oils and greases, internal lubricants can be used to reduce the material’s co-efficient of friction and maintenance costs. With the lubricant built into the nylon the gears are less likely to attract dust, dirt and oily grime into the other moving parts.
This would normally cause damage to the gears and decrease their life when utilising oil impregnated Venlon 6G-OF product of Gantiel Vensott this will give gears a much longer life expectancy.
Gantiel Vensott has a team of experienced and professional sales staff who will be able to assist with any plastic enquiry.
