Atlantic Gasket Revamps Site with EMI/RFI Products

SSP-502-30 Roll Material (4)Atlantic Gasket continues to keep up with the growing demands of different markets, and this time, we’ve revamped our website with a new section for EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) and RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) shielding materials.  These silicone and fluorosilicone rubbers are filled with a variety of metallic fillers to allow them to be electrically conductive and protect sensitive electronic equipment and other products.  These fillers include Nickel-Aluminum, Nickel-Graphite, Silver-Aluminum, Silver-Copper, Silver-Glass, and Silver-Nickel.

 

 

IMG_5645EMI & RFI shielding gaskets are important in serving a range of industries, such as military, aerospace, automotive, medical, and more.  We can provide silicones and fluorosilicones that meet the MIL-G-83528/MIL-DTL-83528 specification and others that are QPL listed.  Our EMI/RFI materials come in a wide variety of thicknesses, durometers, sheet sizes, rolls, and colors to help suit your needs.  This variety allows us to provide a range of die-cut parts, waterjet-cut parts, stripping, roll goods, sheets, and more.

The EMI/RFI silicones and fluorosilicones not only protect against electromagnetic interference and radio frequency interference but also the typical environmental factors, such as silicone’s natural resistance to a large temperature range.  For harsh environments with solvents and fuels, fluorosilicone is the answer to your issues.  The combination of the rubber along with the internal metallic fillers allows these EMI/RFI shielding materials to be a fantastic option for protecting sensitive equipment for your next project!

Fly, Phoenix Fly!

The year is 2018 and manufacturers are facing new demands and challenges.  With an increasing demand for same-day turnaround slitting and roll production, Atlantic Gasket had a problem on their hands:

How do we slit and rewind rolls at a faster and more efficient rate?

How can we keep up with our overwhelming volume of orders and still ship finished products out on time?

Well an answer did come, and it was in the form of a new Model 625C Phoenix!  This state-of-the-art duplex slitter/rewinder offers the ability to score or shear slit rolls from ½” minimum to 54” maximum.  With speeds up to 250 feet per minute, the Model 625C has been designed for simplicity of operation.  The Phoenix can handle master rolls up to 1,000 lbs. and 30” in diameter.

It is used to slit a wide range of materials, including:

  • Mechanical Rubber
  • Sponge & Foam
  • Films & Fibers
  • Cork & Cork-Rubber
  • PSA-Backed Materials
  • Non-Wovens

This extremely flexible precision machine is at the forefront of slitter technology, and raises Atlantic Gasket’s capabilities and stamina through the roof!  I sat down with Atlantic Gasket’s president Harry Cann to discuss the advancements and productivity made possible with the introduction of the Phoenix…

“You can buy machines all day long – Atlantic’s advantage is what we can do with them” says Harry.  “We’re always looking to expand our capabilities. How can creativity allow us to use our machines to their maximum capability?  What can allow us to be more competitive in the marketplace?”
