Technical Literature: Machining Prevents Premature Wear

With advanced processes, sophisticated CAD systems, and dedicated CNC machines, Apple Rubber creates high-quality, custom-engineered prototypes.

To prevent premature wear and seal failure, the metal surfaces that contact O-rings during installation and system operation must be properly prepared. This consists of appropriate selection of materials, as well as machining for optimum surface finish.

Our advanced technology helps prevent unnecessary O-ring cutting, nicking, extrusion, and nibbling during assembly and operation for a quicker than ever turnaround time.
