High-strength copper nuts for composite materials:
The application of flanged copper nuts on composite materials in high-frequency vibrations. Flanged copper nuts have high strength, high tensile strength and high torsion caused by high friction. This is a solution that is very suitable for composite materials.
The high-strength copper nut customer used in electric skateboards is a manufacturer of electric skateboards and electric scooters located in California on the west coast of the United States. Founded in 2012, it is one of the most well-known electric skateboard brands in the world.
In 2018, according to the new market demand and the company's need for innovation and growth, the customer designed a new version of the skateboard style, but encountered difficulties in manufacturing. The previous inserts cannot be applied to the new skateboard using composite materials because of insufficient pull And, the whole piece of composite material is easy to overflow when in-mold injection molding.
Our job is to solve these problems.
solution:We increase the friction between the product and the plate by adding a flange, and increase the direct tensile force between the insert and the plate by adding a wire screw sleeve, and at the same time take into account the anti-seismic ability, in-mold injection For the problem of glue overflow, we adopted the method of sticking 3M hoses on both ends to control the problem of glue overflow.
Our solution was quickly accepted by customers and received a high evaluation.
Follow-up results:In 2018, this scooter was rated by Time Magazine as one of the top inventions of 2018. In the same year, on the best list of The Verge, customers occupied the first and second positions.
Because of this good cooperation, our strength and product quality have been recognized by customers, and we have become a stable insert supplier and solution provider for customers.
