Lightness, strength, and corrosion resistance, combined with style
Tractors, combine-harvesters, telehandlers and farm implements are vehicles using tecni-form mouldings. The advantages advantages are lightness, corrosion resistance, durability and style. Designers can create elegant, efficient shapes which are difficult or impossible in metals. Many plastics are able to stand up to very rough treatment: it is just a question of design and selection of the right polymer.
Some examples are fuel tanks, hydraulic tanks, fenders, body panels, roofs, cab interior mouldings, sound reduction panels, floor mats, bulkheads, seat components, cowlings and tanks. All of these can be made using rotomoulding or RIM. tecni-form can achieve sophisticated results with their leading-edge techniques. They can include the injection of polymer foams into components to give them rigidity and insulating qualities; and they can build up assemblies from bought-in components so products can be delivered ready for fitting. With the right combination of metals and plastics, it is possible to make a reliable engineering component with predictable behaviour under load.
tecni-form can add logos, written or diagrammatic instructions, and warnings into the surface of a moulding. Agricultural vehicles today can have style as well as function, and all parts can include surface textures and decoration.
