Metal Substitution and Weight Reduction
Driving down costs and reducing weight has been a critical objective in for household applications. One of the most effective ways of achieving this is to substitute metal with plastic.
AKRO-PLASTIC produces a 50% glass fibre reinforced, semi-aromatic polyamide blend with very high stiffness and strength, even in conditioned state. These products typically aim for metal replacement applications.
JUWEL uses the material AKROLOY® PA GF 50 natural (2916) after intensive tests for the support arms and functional parts of the Swing, Twist and Samba clothing dryers instead of using aluminum profiles.
The desired load-bearing strength and long-term use are still fully met, the type Swing 200 has also been successfully GS-TUEV certified.
