TriStar Releases New Agricultural White Paper

TriStar Plastics, a leader in engineered plastics solutions, has published a new white paper,

“Agricultural Machinery Design – Polymer Bearing Innovations for Increased Efficiency, Enhanced Productivity and Greater Value.”

This free paper uncovers how polymer bearings are revolutionizing an industry once dependent on steel and bronze bearing materials. It discusses the significant cost and design advantages engineered bearings provide to equipment manufacturers and the correlating efficiency and productivity benefits that can be realized by their farming partners.

“As steel prices continue to soar, manufacturers are looking for a sturdy, yet cost-effective bearing material that will last, and polymer bearings provide all that and more,” said Richard Cedrone, CEO of TriStar Plastics. “And because polymer bearings are virtually maintenance free, they can help farmers save on labor and ownership costs, while helping them optimize their time in the field.”

TriStar’s line of Rulon , CJ, Ultracomp, and TriSteel self-lubricating bearings outlast and outperform metal on the many pivot points, assemblies and cylinders aboard farming machines such as tractors, combines, mowers, sprayers and cutters.    

“TriStar unites superior design and durability – plus in-house production and engineering – to deliver bearings that make a difference not only to equipment manufacturers, but to the farmers they design for,” said Cedrone.
