Material Handling


Polygon composite bearings make lifting mechanisms in material handling equipment stronger, lighter, and longer-lasting than metal components.

Polygon’s application engineers have decades of experience working with leading OEMs to design composite bearings that improve the performance of material handling equipment. These bearings enable lighter weight and less equipment maintenance for forklifts, pallet jacks, stackers and other material handling equipment. Our company has succeeded in designing composite bearing solutions for new material handling equipment and replacing metal bearings in existing model designs.

Potential Applications

  • Pallet jacks
  • Forklifts
  • Order pickers
  • Stackers

Polygon bearings provide these benefits:

  • Less maintenance downtime
  • High load capacities
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Design flexibility
“The type of product Polygon provides is high quality and the application is very good in terms of eliminating any noise or type of functional issue that may arise using a different type of bearing, such as metal.” Material Controls Manager Leading Material Handling Equipment Company
“Depending on the application, the composite bearings are functionally better in the type of equipment we use. The composite bearings are maintenance free and wear better than metal. Metal-on-metal isn't good, and metal-on-composite is more efficient and better quality in our application.” Procurement Department Specialist Global Material Handling Equipment Manufacturer
