The burden of fluid connector part design and design for manufacturability has shifted from the OEM to the tier-1 supplier and their injection molding partner. Throughout this post, we’ll discuss the reasons behind this shift, what makes a fluid connector technically complex, and the expertise your molding partner needs to deliver a stable and repeatable part.
In this post, we're going to explore how tier-1 automotive manufacturers that use rubber door seals are making the shift towards more complex parts as way of meeting (or even exceeding) OEM's strict criteri
NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness) is the measurement, study, and modification of the noise and vibration characteristics of vehicles. Engineers must continuously work on combating the noise (what you hear)
Selecting a rubber component manufacturer may seem like a daunting task since there is so much information to consider: which manufacturing processes are used, what materials does the manufacturer work with, what products are offered
It’s possible to make some tweaks in an injection molding setup, but generally speaking, it’s much more difficult after a company has moved beyond the prototyping stage. In order to avoid issues further down the line, some simple tips
