Diaphragm Engineering and DesignDiaphragm Engineering and Design

Diaphragm Design

Dia•Com Design Engineers routinely work with our customer engineering personnel to transform application concepts first into fully functioning prototypes, and, ultimately, into production units. Our experience and background allow us to cost-effectively provide a diaphragm that meets or exceeds all customers' diaphragm expectations. Using AutoCad drafting software, we are able to communicate electronically with our customers to accelerate the design process.

Existing diaphragm applications sometimes do not perform as well as intended. Our technical staff is available as an aid to our customers to analyze performance issues, offer hardware recommendations, and to assist in root cause analysis and the implementation of permanent corrective actions.

Dia•Com has developed two design tools that can be used to assist engineers in the basics of diaphragm design. Our Diaphragm Design Catalog is a complete, hard-copy description of diaphragm theory, diaphragm design, basic materials properties, hardware recommendations and standard tooling lists. Our Dia•Soft® design software can provide similar information at your computer and can walk you through the basics of a diaphragm design. Using the Dia•Soft® software, you can develop a print of your diaphragm concept. Both the Diaphragm Design Catalog and the Dia•Soft® design software is available at no charge.

DiaCom Corporation production facilities.Materials Lab

Constantly striving to improve existing applications, meet the demands of new programs, and troubleshoot application issues, Dia•Com has established a Rubber Materials Lab that gives us significant rubber-testing capabilities.

Using ASTM standard procedures, we are able to obtain physical properties, such as, tensile strength, elongation, modulus, durometer, tear strength, compression set, and rheology data, such as, viscosity, cure times, scorch data, etc.

We are also capable of running a variety of chemical compatibility testing, heat aging, volume swells, etc. using ASTM standard testing procedures, and we can run customer-specific tests.

Part of our Materials Lab is a 16"(406 mm) 2-roll mill that gives us an in-house mixing capability that allows us to deliver new, custom rubber compound formulations. Combining this test capability with our technical expertise allows us to provide materials that meet customer specifications, ASTM material call-out and other certification bodies, such as, UL or NSF.

As of August of 2003 Dia•Com has added a new tool manufacturing shop to our capabilities. The new tool shop and its experienced staff now allow us to produce the majority of our tools in-house. This new addition also allows for many new efficiencies. We can now offer less expensive tools, rapid prototyping, and an expedited lead time on parts that require new tooling.
