High-performance plastics for the automotive industry

motion plastics drive automobiles forward. The low weight and the quiet operation of the bearings and energy chains are only two advantages of polymer precision components. Due to their resistance to corrosion, their lubrication-free properties and their predictable service life, they are reliable components that offer technical advantages and are often more cost-effective than metal bearings.
