Less maintenance, stronger in use

Construction machines have a tough job: they have to operate reliably in every work environment and in all weather conditions. Because, as everywhere, failures cost money and must be avoided. We offer components made of high-performance polymers that stand out due to their high durability and long service life. This includes energy chains for cable protection and guidance, e.g. when cables are used for work platforms, aerial lifts or drilling machines. The suitable UV and temperature-resistant cables for dynamic continuous movements can be found in our chainflex cable product range. Maintenance-free and lubrication-free plain bearings for heavy-duty applications, e.g. in excavators, wheeled loaders and telescopic forklifts, are used from stock or as custom-made components. For all parts, the service life is predictable, which is a plus for every construction planning project. Around the world, more than 20,000 clients from the construction machine industry trust us.
