PGC Receives John Deere’s Partnership Level Award
PGC has received John Deere’s Partnership level award, the top honor received for 1st class supplier performance. We were rated on the following areas:
· Technical Support
· Cost Management
To achieve this level of excellence it requires everyone at PGC to do their part and we are incredibly proud of our team. This is no small accomplishment, and we are excited to continue this partnership for many years to come.
Common Die Cutting Terms
Using sharp edged cutting dies to cut out shapes from a wide range of materials. Materials like, rubber, foam, plastic and more.
Cut to, but not through the liner.
A machine or any device that pushes out the scarp from a cut out in a die.
What is Compression Deflection and Compression Set?
When starting a new project, PGC’s engineers look at many variables when considering what materials will work best in a specific application. Typically, solutions will require some type of elastomeric material if the application is sealing. Elastomers behave uniquely in sealing applications because they exhibit unique properties that allow them to be compressed. It is those specific properties of elastomers that are important to know and understand as a gasket or seal design proceeds. Two of those characteristics or properties are compression deflection and compression set.
