Dimension Bond Creates Precise, Bonded Surfaces
Featuring Permanent Bearing Surfaces Combined with Optimized Dimensions – All in One Operation!
Parts that require permanent lubrication and additional parts and operations, such as wear bands, inserted bushings and sleeves, or confined spaces that require a lubricant surface, are perfect candidates for Dimension Bond. This includes the dynamic component(s) of products like fuel pumps, shock absorbers, valves, air and hydraulic components, pumps, air and gas springs and solenoids.
We Create Precise, Bonded Bearing Surfaces
Permanent Bearing Surfaces Combined with Optimized Dimensions – All in One Operation!
Parts that require permanent lubrication or additional were surface parts and machining and operations to apply those where surface parts, such as wear bands, inserted bushings and sleeves, or confined spaces that require a lubricant surface, are perfect candidates for Dimension Bond. This includes the dynamic component(s) of products like fuel pumps, shock absorbers, valves, air and hydraulic components, pumps, air and gas springs and solenoids.
The Dimension Bond Process
The metallurgy or composition and surface of your candidate parts, and mating parts, are inspected and analyzed to determine the most appropriate Dimension Bond nanocomposite bearing surface.
With the utilization of micron-accurate measuring devices such as laser micrometers and air gauges, we simultaneously add the optimal bearing material and verify the dimension of the finished parts surface.
All parts are then heated to temperatures ranging from 300° F to 780° F in order to permanently bond the bearing surface to the part. We have wide range of bonded bearing composites with an ever-expanding universe of wear resistant and low friction, corrosion resistant permanently bonded bearing surfaces.
Each part is dimensionally inspected to micron-accuracy before shipment.
Using this patented technology, we are able to bond almost any liquid-based coating material that is post or heat-curable with micron accuracy.
Turning Potential Scrap into Dimensional Correctness
Customers typically send us parts that vary from dimensional correctness by as much as 0.071mm (.0028) to +/- 0.035mm (.0014″). Using precise computer-controlled Dimension Bond application technology and micron-accurate measuring devices, we are able to customize the thickness of material being bonded to each individual part. This results in improvement of all parts to within a final finished dimension as accurate as 0.010mm (.0004″) or +/- 0.005mm (.0002″) = dimensionally correct production-ready parts.
The configuration of parts we now process includes shafts, cylinders, pistons, multi-diameter outer diameters, multi-diameter inner diameters, long cylinders at a combination inner board/outer diameter component.
A Variety of Bonded Bearing Surface Options
The Dimension Bond R&D Team continuously formulates, develops, and endurance tests higher strength lubricant composites based on engineering polymers and nanocomposites. Additionally, we are able to apply Chemours, Dow, Orion, PPG/Whitford, and many other dry film lubricant coatings with the same micron-accurate results.
Manufacturing Cost and Component Design Benefits
By producing accurate bonded-part dimensions on customer parts, the Dimension Bond process eliminates the need for secondary machining and for inserting wear bands, bushings, etc. This dramatically reduces both our customers material and labor costs. It also enables them to design and manufacture lighter, smaller parts with less complication, manufacturing, and assembly costs. Our goal is to provide permanent, lifetime – lubricated surfaces.
