Pharmaceutical – Pill Processing During the production of pharmaceutical tablets, the product gets diverted into specific process streams using a diverter arm. These arms must remain very stable and straight over their life. The company producing these arms had been machining them from Hydex* PBT but had been struggling to hold the required flatness tolerance. The design of the parts includes a taper at one end of the „hockey stick” shape (blade end). The overall thickness in the body of the part is 4.83 mm and it tapers to 0.89 mm at the tip. Despite machining material off both sides of the plate,...

Transportation - Railroad Passenger Cars Trams are used for public transport at the Belgian coast. The trains consist of three main parts (trolleys): One front part, one end part with a steering table and in between a third floating part. Bearings provide the trolleys the flexibility to follow the rails in a curved or a sloped track. A disk enables the horizontal turning of the train while cylindrical bearings allow a vertical flexibility when on sloped track. Both equipment parts, the trolley pivot disc and the cylindrical bearings, are now made of Ertalyte, replacing “Permaglide*” (PTFE coated...
