Industrial Hydraulic and Pneumatic Applications for Elastomer Products

Industrial Hydraulic and Pneumatic Applications for Elastomer Products Extremely flexible and resilient, elastomer products are integral to the proper functioning of many industrial hydraulic applications.  Elastomers—nitrile, hydrogenated nitrile (HNBR), silicone, flourosilicone (FVMQ), and fluoroelastomer (FKM), to name a few—can expand and contract to accommodate changes in volume and pressure without puncturing or becoming brittle. Durable, […]

How to Leverage EDM Technology for High-Tech Electromagnetic Parts

How to Leverage EDM Technology for High-Tech Electromagnetic Parts What do waveguides, septum polarizers, comparators, wide beam feeds, septum polarizer housings, feed horns, socket end waveguide gimbal feeds, chokes, and flanges all have in common?  Each of these radio frequency (RF) communication parts has internal right angles—and the only way to accurately achieve these features […]

rubber to metal bonding

Design Tips for Durable Rubber-to-Metal Bonding

Design Tips for Durable Rubber-to-Metal Bonding When designing a part that incorporates rubber-to-metal bonding, there are several steps you can take to ensure a strong bonded seal. The primary concern with rubber-to-metal bonding is the design of the rubber itself. Improperly designed rubber components will pull away from the metal part over time. Our goal […]
