SILICONE

This is the collective name for basically inorganic polymers based on strands of silicon and oxygen. Silicon does not conduct electricity, does not dissolve in water and is relatively resistant to the effects of chemicals. The Industrilas inventory offers sealing profiles from silicone. These are separately stored and delivery will be after consultation with the customer.

SINTERING METALS

Sintering is the process of compacting and forming a solid mass of material by heat and/or pressure without melting it to the point of liquefaction. The metal powder is pressed into a mold in the shape of the detail. The pressing produces a so-called ”green body” containing a great amount of pores. In the sintering process the green body is heated so many of the pores are closed and the item takes on its ultimate mechanical characteristics. Sintering produces smooth surfaces, and items with complex shapes can be manufactured without the need for much additional work. This can be done with different materials such as stainless steel, and so on. Industrilas uses sintered items as for instance cogwheels and pinions.

SOLID COMPONENTS

Since 2008 Industrilas has used SolidComponents ™. This allows customers an internet solution with a digital product catalogs with CAD support and instant access to 3D CAD models of all the products of our standard program. The system supports all major CAD systems. To download CAD data, just click on the part number and choose your CAD platform, and the file is generated immediately! Via a product configurator you can also create your own CAD models. SolidComponents™ is currently used by design engineers in over 140 countries, which together generate millions of different CAD models every year. These are the supported formats in 3D and 2D: SolidWorks Pro/E Sat Step Parasolid Iges Dxf Dwg SOLIDWORKS At Industrilas, we use the SolidWorks 3D CAD system. On this foundation, we have developed solutions for demanding latch-, hinge- and gasket applications for more than 20 years. Our design department works with the latest developing and simulation tools, for instance when designing multi-axis hinges. All our combined resources are available to you as we help you develop products that best meet your needs.

STAINLESS STEEL

Certain demanding environments require a more durable material. The corrosion resistance of stainless steel comes from the steel being alloyed with chromium. When the chromium content exceeds approximately 10.5% a thin film is formed on the steel that passively protects the underlying steel from further oxidation, or rusting. In case of damage to the surface of the steel the top film of protective chromium oxide forms again very quickly. Industrilas has a large assortment of stainless versions of locks, handles and hinges. If nothing else is stated in the Catalogue, the classification ”Stainless Steel” refers to the European Standard EN 1.4301, which corresponds to American Iron and Steel Institute standard AISI 304.
