Lift and Release Siderail Bracket
Multi-application bracket designed for the PVC pipe fabrication industry. This apparatus is used extensively on emergency gurneys. Said gurneys are manufactured out of PVC and stored for FEMA use.
Multi-Plane Mounting Bracket Progressive Stamping Die Strip
Ideal stock strip layout integrates a lot of Diemaking experience. This is the initially proposed progressive die stock strip layout for a multi-plane mounting bracket.
Part Cavities for Diecast Mold
The production of intricate Diecast Mold cavities is a matter of computers speaking to one another. The computer program used by the designer must be readily compatible with the computer generating the code for milling machines. While drawings are still used, the importance of drawings is growing less and less each day. The final save by the die cavity designer had better be correct because that is what the CNC mill will produce. The above illustration is for a mechanical fuel pump.
Decorative Aluminum Extrusion Corner Trimpiece
Aluminum Extrusions, together with a few molded finishing parts, are often an excellent fabrication theme to obtain multi-functional qualities in a product line. Support strength, sealing, rust resistance, ascetic appeal, etc. can easily be synthesized into a complete product using the extrusion/molded part scheme. The product pictured above provides the trim work and more for a tub enclosure.
Recreational Vehicle Rainwater Drip Spouts
A common mirror image part theme, in this case, applied to a nuisance, side panel, vertical water stain once common on the sides of recreational vehicles. Designed to fit behind an extrusion (usually the awning extrusion) these small details guide the water flow away from the vehicle side.
Aluminum Extrusion Engineering
This aluminum extrusion, with it's complimentary family of related extrusions, formed the framework, support, seals, etc. for a walk in solid shower door and glass panel assembly. A wide variety of product functions can be achieved using extrusions when a bit of after machining can be readily supplied.
Loop and Catch Assembly
Spring loaded ring and catch assembly, useful for anything from a keyring to handcuffs.
Custom Conical Spring
Spring design has a versatility largely unexploited. This energy Storage device was custom designed for a non-adjustable dedicated pressure valve.
Two Piece Cord Lock
Basic, two piece cord lock with an additional cover available. This design was for the window blind industry.
Hinge Knuckle for PVC Pipe Fabrications
A very handy add on component for the entrepreneurial fabricator of PVC pipe constructions. With a few simple inventions, even the very common among modern day materials can be used for new purposes. Gates, doors, hangars, gliders, etc., and whatever else an imaginative mind can come up with are taken care of by using two of these knuckles and thereby creating a hinge. This one was designed for an emergency patient gurney but it could be used for many other functions as well.
Progressive Stock Strip Layout for a Cable Bracket
A part stamped from sheet metal requires someone, somewhere, to propose a workable sequence of piercings, notching, bends, etc.to transition efficiently from a sheet to a bracket or whatever else the end part will serve. Although the judgments can be daunting, most of the difficult mental work is accomplished once a workable progressive strip is figured out.
Two-Direction Quick Clamp Assembly
Readily adaptable clamping assembly. In this instance it is used to secure a toolboard to the personnel bucket used by lineworkers etc. The assembly is easily fabricated using materials with a high dielectric strength.
Multi-Use Roller Assembly for PVC Pipe
Well designed roller assembly designed for a manufacturer of PVC pipe products. The functional idea came largely from the client. St Joseph Mold and Tool Co. completed the initial idea and made it easy to manufacture.
Battery Box and Top
Easily adaptable to many battery styles as well as multiple connection schemes. A top down design that awaits the specific customers requirements. Do you need a sealed lid? We can do that. Do you need clamps, ledges, or waterproof wire access? We can do that. Do you want to rotational mold it? Do you want to injection mold it?
3D Fittable Proto Mold
Four components for a short-run prototyped mold. All four components are initially in a single file for ease of machining. After the single large piece is machined the four component pieces are separated by sawing and these same four components assembled, comprising a complete mold.
