Die cut weather seals protect interior components from water, light, dust, dirt, and other contaminants. They are used with automotive head lights and tail lights, furnace doors, HVAC access panels, cover plates, and lenses for LED lighting. To support cost-effective manufacturing, these die cut products are fabricated from sheet or roll materials and can attach to the substrate with metal fasteners or adhesives.
Recently, JBC Technologies attended the International Air Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo 2017) in Las Vegas, Nevada. From January 30 to February 1, the Entertainment Capital of the World was an HVACR extravaganza. For the 2000+ exhibitors representing every segment of the industry, this three-day event at the Las Vegas Convention Center was an opportunity to connect with HVACR professionals, showcase new technologies, and build business relationships.
AHR Expo 2017 last three days, hosts 2000 exhibitors, and attracts crowds of 60,000 attendees. Even if the International Air Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) wasn’t in Las Vegas, competition for your attention would be fierce. There’s plenty to see and do both at the tradeshow and in the Entertainment Capital of the World, so why visit a die cutter from Ohio when you’re in Nevada?
This year’s International Air Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo 2017) will be held from January 30 to February 1 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Co-sponsored by ASHRAE and AHRI, and held concurrently with ASHRAE’s Winter Conference, AHR Expo is where the HVACR industry gathers to share new products, technologies, and ideas. For the sixth time, JBC Technologies will exhibit at the AHR Expo.
Manufacturers of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment need gaskets that are cost-effective to produce, easy-to-install, and that provide reliable sealing. Precision die cutting is a proven gasket fabrication technique that achieves tight tolerances, and in various part sizes and production quantities. For larger, thicker gaskets in lower volumes, flat bed die cutting is a good choice. For thinner and smaller gaskets in higher volumes, rotary die cutting is recommended.
