Machined Component Parts

Beldam Crossley offer a comprehensive range of polymer machining with the ability to machine small to large components with relatively simple to complex features, within a work envelope of 1100mm x 540mm x 480mm.

The manufacturing department does not also have the ability of machining components to draw but also provides the service of assembling machined components and purchased parts into sub-assemblies or final assemblies to support the customer’s assembly criteria.

PTFE Bearings

Plane cylindrical and flange type bearings are available in most Crossflon® compounds. Please contact us for us advice on selecting the appropriate material for your application.


Most Crossflon® compounds are available in sheet and tape form, which can be etched making them suitable for bonding to other materials or used in a wide range of applications where reduced friction is needed.

Compounds specifically formulated with FDA compliant components can be used as non-stick coating surfaces in food and drug contact applications.

WEAR Components

Wear components are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes, other than those indicated above.

These include wear strips, pump bodies, and pistons for chemically and thermally demanding operating conditions.

We can manufacture to customer specifications or provide design assistance. Please contact us for more information.

Moulded Rod and Tube

Moulded rods and tubes are available in most Crossflon® compounds. Please contact us for more information on the range.

Formed Parts

We offer hot or cold formed parts in most Crossflon® compounds. Please contact us to discuss your requirement.


Solid and split pistons rings with a wide range of joint configurations can be manufactured to customer specifications. Alternatively, we can assist in designing a ring to meet with your individual requirements.
