50 Years of Designing and Manufacturing Engineered Plastic Parts for Industrial Equipment

Timco Plastic Components in the Forestry Industry

The strength and durability of plastics make them ideal for wear and structural parts used on equipment to harvest trees and transport them to the mills. As mentioned previously, plastics can withstand the wide range of environmental conditions required by this outdoor industry. Timco parts are lightweight, corrosion resistant and easily designed to fit specific equipment.

Because many of the Timco materials are self-lubricating, maintenance requirements are reduced. The plastic materials also cause very little wear on the contacted surface, leading to reduced cost to maintain the entire system. For example, when Timco sheaves are used in place of steel ones, the wire rope will last to two to three times longer.

Timco has decades of experience designing and manufacturing plastic parts for forestry equipment. Our sales engineers will work with you to uncover all the design and load requirements of your part. We will be happy to help you select the best material and manufacturing process for your component. Our extensive engineering services make sure your Timco part will function in your logging application.
