Quarrying & Mining
Advancing Quarrying & Mining: Nylacast's Engineered Impact
Enhancing your technology with Engineering Polymer Solutions
The equipment used within the quarrying and mining industry has to endure harsh working conditions. Therefore, all equipment needs to be durable, reliable, and able to perform efficiently and meet demands.
We work with many leading OEMs building quarrying and mining equipment for earth moving, extraction and material movement. The technology we support includes but is not limited to earthmoving, crushers, shredders, and conveyors.
We know how vital equipment performance is for the end user and work with OEM clients on projects to reduce equipment weight while augmenting load-handling capabilities. Enhance operational efficiency, maintain safety standards, and meet sustainability targets. Nylacast is committed to application consultancy and material innovation to support the industry's need to reduce maintenance, minimise downtime, and extend the lifecycle of machinery and equipment.
Nylacast provides comprehensive technical support, from design and material selection to custom engineering solutions, ensuring optimal performance and longevity for your machinery.
Problems we solve
- Drum Support Roller
Case Study: Enhancing Application Performance
Equipment: Asphalt Plant
Industry: Quarrying & Mining
Original Material: Cast Iron
New Material: Nylacast Aquanyl 612 Roller
Elevated levels of component deterioration, vibration, noise and safety considerations during assembly and lack of ease of handling.
Nylacast’s advanced copolymer Aquanyl 612.
A solution that enhanced the roller's wear life and impact strength. The material's outstanding damping properties reduce noise, while simultaneously reducing weight to 1/7th of the weight of cast iron. Collectively, these attributes ensured that the Drum Support Roller outperformed the Cast Iron version, contributing to improved performance and safety.
- Low Friction
- Increased Wear Life
- Reduced Maintenance
- Reduced component weight
