Intricate Machined Plastic Components

Intricate Machined Plastic Components

We specialise in manufacturing milled and turned plastic components made for the conveyor and food processing industries. In these industries, durability, wear resistance, and food safety are paramount. To meet these requirements, we utilise a range of high-performance materials including oil-filled nylon, Nylatron GSM, food-grade green polyethylene, and virgin PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene).

Oil-filled nylon and Nylatron GSM are engineered plastics renowned for their excellent wear properties and resistance to abrasion, making them ideal choices for components subjected to high levels of friction and stress in conveyor systems. These materials help prolong the lifespan of the components, reducing maintenance needs and downtime.

For applications requiring food-grade materials, we offer components made from food-grade green polyethylene, ensuring compliance with food safety regulations while maintaining robust performance characteristics. These components are designed to withstand the rigorous demands of food processing environments while ensuring product integrity and safety.

Additionally, we provide components crafted from virgin PTFE, a versatile material known for its low friction, excellent chemical resistance, and non-stick properties. Virgin PTFE components are suitable for a wide range of food processing applications where cleanliness, reliability, and performance are essential.

By offering a diverse range of materials with superior wearing properties, WKH provides tailored solutions that meet the stringent requirements of the conveyor and food processing industries. Our milled and turned plastic components are designed to optimise performance, minimise maintenance, and ensure the highest standards of quality and safety in food handling and processing operations.
