Case Study: Acrylic Foam Tapes for Enclosed Utility Trailers

Posted by Mark Swanson on Apr 20, 2017 4:47:58 PM

Acrylic foam tapes (AFTs) can bond the panels of enclosed utility trailers. Unlike mechanical fasteners, these high-strength industrial adhesives won’t loosen from vibrations. This results in a quieter ride, but reduced noise and vibration dampening aren’t the only benefits. AFTs support die cutting, a cost-effective material conversion technique. As an experienced die cutter who understands your assembly operations, JBC Technologies can save you time and money with acrylic foam tapes. This case study explains how.

Die Cut Technical Papers for Electrical Insulation

Posted by Sam Frazier on Aug 19, 2016 9:44:43 AM

Engineers read plenty of trade journals and industry magazines. So when they hear the term “technical papers,” it’s only natural to wonder if the publications are reports, white papers, or magazine articles. Not all technical papers are meant to be read, however. In fact, some are designed for electrical insulation instead of professional education. These technical papers support precision die cutting and impart specialized properties for applications such as electrical insulation.
