#tbt to Ebco's Inspection and Testing Lab in 1996

#tbt to Ebco’s inspection and testing lab back in 1996! Steve, our inspector in the photo, was using our VMM to dimensionally inspect a part, while preparing to use the Com-Ten Load Frame to run compression and adhesion testing.

While our equipment has changed since then, we still are lucky to have Steve running our tests today!

Check out our Physical Testing page to see photos of our current, state of the art equipment.

3D Printing Opportunities

Once restricted to the realm of rigid plastics, rapid prototyping technology has expanded tremendously in recent years to include the ability to produce functional elastomeric components. At Ebco, we specialize in 3D printing products using a highly extensible, highly durable polyurethane-based material. Samples can be produced in stiffnesses representative of durometers from 30 to 80 Shore A, allowing us to mimic the feel from soft pencil erasers to hard hockey pucks. Examples of past prototypes include cylinder boots, seat isolators, seals, ROPS bumpers, wiring harnesses grommets and more. Contact us today to see how rapid prototyping with Ebco can lessen the costs and lead time in moving your product from concept to the production line.

Ebco Patent

Within the material handling industry, ergonomics and ride quality are critical design considerations impacting end-user experience.  This is especially applicable to floor mats used in stand-on products where operators may be on their feet for 8+ hours at a time.  To meet this demand, Ebco has designed, developed and patented an ergonomic floor mat waffle pattern capable of replicating the soft feel of closed-cell sponge mats in an all-dense construction.  The end result is a floor mat which maximizes operator comfort without sacrificing on durability.  This innovative support geometry can be utilized in any floor mat application to better isolate users from shock and vibration while also reducing operator fatigue.  Please reach out to our design team to get assistance in developing a solution for your application.
