A customised solution for a heavy weight problem
Replacing metal items, with strong lightweight plastic alternatives.
Koves Plastic Industries has created a customised solution for a client with a weight problem. Koves has created a 2 piece plastic Hand Chain Sprocket Wheel, designed to maximise strength and minimise material use that offers a 90% weight reduction when compared to the previous pressed and welded metal item.
The specialised design of the plastic chain wheel: reduces the capital outlay required for tooling, reduces the overall weight & reduces the cost of market entry.
The reduced weight of the Chain Wheel reduces the inertia when the wheel is spinning, and this allows the Chain Wheel to stop spinning quicker, reducing the load that the inertia applied to other parts of the machine.
