How Rubber Manufacturing Helps Progress in the Aviation and Aerospace Industries
Rubber components have been a part of the aviation industry since the Wright brothers first took to the air. The spirit of independent aviation is rooted in the American desire to build something with your own two hands and use it to explore the entire world around you. If you are designing components for use in the aviation industry, finding a manufacturing partner who can produce the exact components you need is key to your safety and success. The precision needed to make an aircraft function means that every part must be created precisely as you specify. Using rubber for aviation parts makes sense thanks to the cost, versatility and diversity that rubber offers. An example of parts we make for aviation include engine mounts.... now that's a critical component! Our work speaks for how our customers trust us with their most critical components!
Why Choose Rubber For An Aviation Project?
Rubber components are ideal for use in the aviation industry for a few reasons, including:
• Ability to customize to any size or shape needed for the specific engine size. If you are beginning your next design project and are considering your options, specific higher quality rubber performance characteristics can make a significant difference in the capability and life span of the finished product.
• Durability over an extended period. Safety is paramount in aviation applications and using a durable rubber or synthetic rubber product will help to ensure your project performs to specification.
• Resistance to damage due to exposure to extreme weather conditions. The changing exterior pressures and temperatures as you take to the sky are likely to affect the engine components. Using a durable form of rubber or synthetic rubber like EPDM, Nitrile (NBR) or Neoprene, for example, helps o-rings, gaskets and other parts last longer.
• Ability to keep its form once molded into a shape
However, if your specific setup requires more durability, overmolding rubber with another material may be the perfect solution. An experienced manufacturing partner can advise you on how to proceed and what materials will give you the best results. Rubber to metal bonded applications can help gaskets, o-rings and engine seals stand up to extreme weather exposure and other hazards that can destroy components made with more pliable materials.
Rapid Prototyping Helps Larger Companies Soar Faster
As more companies make progress in the aerospace industry, there is a rising demand for components that can survive longer and lower lifecycle costs. Rapid prototyping allows you to get thousands or millions of the components you need for testing and experimentation in a hurry. At Rubber Industries, we help keep the process efficient by handling every aspect under one roof. From creating a prototype to help you see your custom design in real life to producing a high volume of the component you need quickly, we have the capacity to handle it all. This keeps you from having to deal with two separate entities for prototyping and manufacturing. Plus, our production is the fastest in the industry, with facilities working around the clock in multiple different nations to fill orders on any deadline.
If you are creating a customized aerospace or aviation project and need components tailor made to your vision, Rubber Industries can help. We make custom parts for this industry segment. Our team has the experience to take your sketches. 3D CAD or plans and turn them into a real product you can feel confident about meeting and exceeding your specifications and requirements.
