Description

In conveyor systems, transport chains and sliding elements made of thermoplastic materials are increasingly used. Major advantages are lubrication-free and so clean and low-maintenance operation, low weight as well as design-flexible and efficient injection molding manufacturing.

In practice, components of conveyor systems are stressed in very different ways. However, mechanical and tribological properties of plastics are significantly dependent on load and environmental conditions, in particular temperature. Therefore, the development and characterization of suitable material systems are very complex. In the talk, these challenges will be addressed and opportunities for practical investigation and provision of characteristic properties will be presented.
