Applications For Lumber Industry

  • Lumber industry — saw tables, liners, hose wrap/saddles, bushing, bearings, rollers, sprockets, chain guides, safety windows, flange caps, wear rails, saw guides
  • Sawmills and planer mills — tipple gates, chain channel inserts, wear plates/strips, bearings/blocks, sound dampeners, chipper spouts, drop grate arms, conveyor flights, hooks, slider blocks, diverter arms, chain caps, chip screens
  • Pulp and paper industry — bearings, bushings, conveyor parts, sprockets, liners, seals and rings, deflector blades, forming boards, pulp bale press slides and protectors, paper wedges
  • Protects hoses, wires, and cables from rubbing, crushing, and kinking
