Dampen Sound and Prevent Damage
Like with most equipment and devices, moving parts pose the threat of scratching, cracking or simply unwanted noise. Bumpers and spacers help avoid this. Our soft, durable materials—like foam, silicone and rubber—can be shaped to your custom dimensions to keep parts and people safe.
Our materials engineers can fabricate almost any type of bumper and spacer—from small and simple shapes to large, intricate pieces. To shape your parts, we’ll die cut, kiss cut, waterjet cut, laser cut, or split or slit your material.
Just as important as the shape is the performance. Specific compression resistance and material grade will let your part work seamlessly with its adjoining components.
The material characteristics depend on both the environment and the type of activity that the bumper or spacers will encounter. For constant, heavy use, choose a thicker and more durable material, like a silicone rubber. For lighter, occasional activity, open cell foam will work just fine.
Our custom fabrication methods are often a cost-effective alternative to molded parts.
Shaping capabilities include die cutting, kiss cutting, waterjet cutting and laser cutting.
We stock materials with ideal compression, dimensional and demanding performance characteristics.
Uses of Bumpers and Spacers
You likely see sound dampening or shock absorbing materials every day, from the bottom of your keyboard to the forklift at your home improvement store. Bumpers and spacers can be used in objects of all sizes in nearly any environment:
- Industrial equipment
- Children’s play areas
- Kitchen cabinets
- Amusement park rides
