Part Optimization

The Rubber industry has highly developed since Charles Goodyear developed the concept of vulcanization in the year 1844. Rubber compounding has never been the same since. The range of raw materials available today is many and all of the products have certain properties which are desirable.

The rubber technology available now is much more advanced than it was 50 years back. When we are approached to make a part for a machine which is old, we do excessive brainstorming with the idea of optimization. This helps us to develop products which help to push the machines capability. This sincerity from our end is not only something which helps our customers on the balance sheet, but it is in fact an ideology which forms the corner stone of our corporate social responsibility. We believe in the concept of repair and reusability, rather than the use and throw culture which is detrimental to our planet.

Our optimization procedure follows a 6 step process.

  • Analyze wear pattern of existing parts.
  • Observe force associated and variations with time.
  • Make Finite Element Analysis Models to run simulations.
  • Study the effect of changes in part geometry and material properties.
  • Optimize material and design to ensure superior fatigue and other customer desired properties.
  • Iterate for possible improvements based on inputs from real life instrumentation.
