INSUL-FAB ENHANCES ITS CNC ROUTING CAPABILITIES

Insul-Fab has recently added a new dual-head, fixed bridge 5-Axis Router to its CNC Machining center. The speed, efficiency, and precision gained from automated manufacturing can now be matched by few in the industry. This is due to enhanced speed and dual-head capability, allowing Insul-Fab to produce dual cuts for each pass.

The new heavy duty, cast iron 5-Axis router, manufactured by C.R. Onsrud, also adds redundancy to Insul-Fab’s current 5-Axis and 3-Axis routing lines.

Insul-Fab is a leading fabricator in its ability to CNC cut a wide variety of materials including plastics routing, composite machining, panel processing, aluminum and alloy milling, carbon fiber routing and graphite machining. Many of the parts are trimmed as panels or from vacuum molded or thermo-formed parts, which are used in HVAC, defense, aerosspace, transportation and general industrial markets.

INSUL-FAB ENHANCES ITS QUALITY SYSTEM

Insul-Fab embraced the ISO 9001 Quality Standard in 2008. Since that time, it has made major commitments to continually improving its Quality System, including investing in an Advanced Quality Software system from IQS, Inc.

Most recently, Insul-Fab updated its Quality System to AS 9100D, the latest revision of the Aerospace and Defense Quality Standard. The AS 9100D revision incorporates the concepts contained in the ISO 9001 standard, but enhances the level of compliance to meet the exacting requirements of the aerospace and defense industries, which ultimately benefits all customers.

INSUL-FAB WINS CONTRACT WITH MAJOR AEROSPACE MANUFACTURER FOR MOISTURE CONTROL

Insul-Fab is pleased to have been selected by a major aerospace OEM to assist with material selection and design implementation for a moisture control application.


As condensation in an aircraft freezes at altitude and then melts upon the aircraft’s decent into warmer temperatures, overhead moisture migrates into passenger cabin areas, a phenomenon often referred to as “rain on the plane.”


Insul-Fab assisted a major customer in analyzing several needle-punched, nonwoven felt materials that wick moisture away from entry points in the cabin. The end result was a bevel-edged, die cut gasket with pressure sensitive adhesive to assist in installation. The gasket diffuses moisture across its surface, allowing evaporation without pooling or dripping in passenger areas.


Condensation is a continuing problem in appliance, HVAC, refrigeration and a number of general industrial applications. Contact Insul-Fab to discuss not only thermal management solutions, but also moisture management solutions for equipment.


Concote Enhances Thermoforming Capability

Each year, Concote makes significant capital investments in its production capabilities.

In 2016, one of Concote’s major initiatives was to enhance its thermoforming capabilities. As a result, it purchased a large-bed, Gulden Single Station Thermoformer. The machine can hold a 48” x 96” mold and has upper and lower independent platens with pneumatic clamping frames for quick cycle production. Additionally, it has an enclosed, quartz hearting-controlled oven, making it ideal for materials that require precision temperature control, such as heavy gauge plastics and high-density foams.

The new thermoformer, coupled with Concote’s in-house mold production and post-production precision trimming and measuring equipment, make Concote a clear choice for thermoforming and pressure forming three dimensional parts and profiles. This is just one reason that Boeing has approved Concote to perform thermoforming and thermobonding of parts for its newer-model aircraft.
