4 Processing Methods for PEEK

Posted On May 02, 2018

PEEK has long been a highly regarded engineering polymer for an almost infinite variety of applications. One of the reasons it remains popular is its processability: PEEK is well adapted to a number of polymer processing techniques. In this post, we are going to discuss four processing methods for manufacturing components from PEEK.

Canted Coil Springs for EFI/RFI Shielding Applications

Posted On April 19, 2018

Canted coil springs (also known as slant coil springs) are known for their ability to latch, hold, and lock, but that isn’t all they have to offer.  Canted coil springs can be used to shield electronics from harmful EMI and RFI interferences. In this blog post, we’ll talk about why canted coil springs work so well for such applications, what additional features they offer, and typical applications.

Factors Influencing Rotary Shaft Seal Performance: Pressure, Velocity, and Temperature

Posted On September 22, 2017

There are various factors that have a significant impact on the performance and behavior of a rotary shaft seal, including operating conditions (speed, pressure, temperature, environment), the mating shaft (hardness, surface finish, lead), and the choice of material for the seal itself.

In this blog post, we are going to review the operating conditions that must be considered for a successful rotary shaft seal.
