Reducing both downtime and maintenance requirements, preventing production line stops, and ensuring a continuous smooth moving production line without any slip or sticking.
Individual Components: Historically, metal has been the primary choice of material for various integral components within this machinery, however, the deployment of this material was leading to component corrosion, requiring frequent maintenance, regular inspection, and a regular application of lubrications.
Nylacast offered an alternative material, a polymer. Nylacast’s lubricated polymer allowed for smooth transition and movement of loaded beverage cans. Equipment downtime decreased as corrosion, friction & and component wear was significantly reduced. Nylacast’s polymer-engineered solution neutralized the main challenges faced with using metallic versions of these applications, various versions of the Starwheel are utilized within this type of equipment due to the versatility, durability, and potential for customization of the requirements
- Smooth transition / movement of loaded cans
- Decreased equipment downtime
- Flexibility in processing varying can sizes
- Supports continuous machine operating speeds of up to 2,200cpm
