Designing For Minimum Costs

Designing For Minimum Costs

While every component is designed to fulfil a unique set of operational requirements, there are a number of common principles which will reduce the time and cost of obtaining an economic component. Many of these are self-evident, but some require an understanding of the differences between moulding thermoset rubber and moulding plastics. We have utmost data on Rubber Design Standards. We have developed Electric Rubber mat in accordance with IS 15652 standards. We also have been following DIN, ISO, ASTM & IS Rubber design standards. Our rubber seal rings has been tested on AS 14000. Our Electric mats are tested up to 40 Kv on IS 15652.

If we know the applications then we can design the products at much lower possible costs. Hence effective communication can play vital role here.

Producing A Specification

Designers are strongly advised to consider and record a specification covering the following points:

  • What operating conditions are expected – normally and exceptionally?
  • What substances will be encountered?
  • What will be the likely material? (See: Selecting / Specifying Rubber)
  • Will there be any movement or distortion?
  • What are the price targets? Are there any tool cost constraints?
  • What colour should the component be?
  • What finish is required?
  • What quality standards will it have to meet?
  • How many are likely to be required?
  • Where are tool split lines preferred and is a level of flash permissable (define width & height)?

A specification is invaluable in selecting a suitable material for trials, as well as being a sound basis for producing parts which are safe and economic by design. Over-specification may lead to the use of an expensive polymer, an inappropriate tool or unnecessarily costly processing.

ONGC – Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited

"ONGC - Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited" - Our complex drilling application where Shaft was eccentric and application was robust & muddy. Replacement was never easy. Mech Spares designed Oil seals resolved difficulty. This gave a complete joy to my maintenance team.

Kuwait National Petroleum Company

"Mr Mohammed Al Duaigy" of (Kuwait National Petroleum Company) : We tried several diaphragms from renown worldwide Rubber manufacturing companies. We found Mech Spares technical know how and product to be of great durability and lasted 3 times more then anticipated. They have accurate understanding of there products.

McCafferty BM Design Ltd, KENT United Kingdom

"McCafferty BM Design Ltd, KENT United Kingdom" - Most of the O rings manufacturing company suggested to use larger diameter and expensive elastomers. We learnt with Mech Spares that elastomer being weaker compare to metal and alloys and needs appropriate back up for high pressure or high vacuum applications. Further not necessary the most expensive elastomer is the best for all applications. We trust Mr Nilesh chodhari completely for all our O rings designing applications.

Bhabha Atomic Research Centre ( BARC )

"Dr. A. Singh" of BARC: The electric Insulation mat manufactured by MECH SPARES as per IS 15624 tested at ERTL and found to withstand 40 Kv and still didn't tear. We have been using since 5 years and still didn't generate any fatigue. They arranged bulk delivery in short period.

Tata Steel

"Tata Steel" - One of our old machines started making loud noise and disturbed the entire village. We were compelled to stop the machines which lead to huge production loss. With the help of Mech Spares designed bellows in two part we could retain the lubrication and eliminate the noise.
