Recent Project Gallery

We recently received a drawing from a customer with a simple question; can you make this King Post Bearing?

King Post Bearings are often used for a simple old type of crane sometimes used on oil rigs. After previous issues with nylon products, the customer had decided to try Tufcot® to replace the old original bearing.

We informed the customer that we could make the product and that it would take 2 weeks for us to deliver.
