Engineering Software Tools Help Solve Vibration Isolation Challenges

The engineering teams at Parker LORD apply their exceptionally robust custom-designed software to gain an advantage when solving Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) vibration isolation and shock challenges. The question is, why wouldn’t companies who manufacture rubber to metal bonded vibration isolators employ the use of current technology to their advantage? It is more surprising to know that not every mount manufacturer leverages such technology in today’s technology-savvy world.

RF Shields: How Should You Measure for Accuracy?

Engineers can spend days or even weeks designing the ideal aluminum RF shield for their application. Fastener placement, wall thickness, cavity location, materials and many other factors are engineered to optimize performance. When Modus Advanced, Inc. began milling RF shields, the company was faced with a question; which of the many choices of measuring equipment is best suited to verify our processes are producing shields that meet customer’s specifications?

Solving the Problem of an Aggressive Timeline: QUICK-TURN RF SHIELDS WITH FIP GASKETS!

When you have a need for “speed”, quick-turn parts can be your salvation! The production of quick-turn parts necessitates both quality methodology and a single supply chain comprised of multiple manufacturing steps. Engineers can achieve both quality and quick-turn through vertical integration. This approach combines the production of base components and supporting processes all under one roof, saving time and money by shortening your supply chain to one manufacturer!

3 Reasons to Use Nickel-Graphite Silicones for EMI Shielding Gaskets

Nickel-graphite silicones are cost-effective compounds that combine the advantages of silicone rubber with the electrical properties of nickel. They are fabricated into gaskets and installed between metal surfaces to provide limited environmental sealing, excellent electrical conductivity, and resistance against electromagnetic interference (EMI). Nickel-graphite silicones aren’t the only shielding elastomers for EMI gaskets, but they offer advantages over silicones that are filled with silver ...

Planning to Prevent Manufacturing Disruption

There’s always potential disruptions in the manufacturing process – materials may not be readily available; customer requirements may have been overlooked when a project was quoted; perhaps changes were made to the design after receiving a quote that didn’t flow through to the purchase order. These hindrances are frustrating and may possibly delay product shipment, but shouldn’t completely derail gasket production.
