Diaphragm Design & Engineering Services
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
DiaCom 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 DiaSoft® design software
can provide similar information at your computer and can
walk you through the basics of a diaphragm design. Using
the DiaSoft software, you can develop a print of
your diaphragm concept. Both the Diaphragm
Design Catalog and the DiaSoft
design software are available at no charge.
striving to improve existing applications, meet the demands
of new programs, and troubleshoot application issues,
DiaCom 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
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.
DiaCom Tool Manufacturing Capabilities
of August of 2003 DiaCom 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.
