The Ultimate Solution for Producing Large O-rings
When it comes to producing large O-rings for today’s demanding applications, the old, unsophisticated method of slash and glue just can’t cut it。 Now, Apple Rubber offers you the ultimate solution for producing large O-rings with greater strength and tighter tolerances。
Thermobonding is Apple Rubber’s breakthrough manufacturing process for large O-rings and seals. This unique process molds the joint with proprietary adhesives and cures with little to no mismatch, while providing excellent flexibility in MacrOring® seals.
While conforming to all ISO 9001 and AS9100 guidelines, strict process control at every step of the Thermobonding process assures quality parts with the following inspections:
- Cord inspection – We perform a full acceptance testing on all cord before it is used. All cord is sampled for Durometer, density, tensile, elongation, and cross sectional measurement to assure all certificates of conformance meet your required specifications.
- Completed Part Inspection – Quality assurance testing is done on the O-ring after it is produced. Inner diameters are measured with full calibrated measuring equipment.
- Completed Quality Documentation – For those high quality requirements, Apple Rubber can provide all the documentation you need: Statistical analysis, FMEA, PAPP, Control Plans, and compliance to ASTM D2527.
Dimensional and material validation is also available if needed.
