The industrial sector offers stiff challenges for plastics processors. Components that are used in these rugged environments need to be able to stand up to significant mechanical and chemical abuse, usually in more or less continuous operation. This often means tough engineering materials like PEEK, nylon and PBT that need to be carefully dried to achieve required performance properties in metal-replacement applications. It also often means heavy wall sections that need significant cooling and thick scrap that can be hard to grind. Makers of industrial components rely on Conair to provide knowledge, service and dependable auxiliary equipment that has what it takes to succeed in this tough market.
