INDUSTRY SPOTLIGHT : HEAVY/INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT

Quadrant EPP has years of experience and expertise with mobile and harbor cranes, lifting gear, excavators, and agricultural equipment—massive machines that operate under harsh wear and extreme conditions. By replacing bronze, cast iron, and welded steel with thermoplastic materials, companies can extend time in use, reduce weight, and provide end-users with a performance-enhanced product. Due to eliminated or substantially reduced external greasing needs, self-lubricating thermoplastic applications can help companies become even more environmentally friendly.
