New extrusion line at Nolato Jabar boosts quality and cuts scrappage

The new extrusion line will not only boost productivity, cut energy consumption and reduce waste, but will also improve the quality of gaskets.

A new extrusion line for silicone products, including various EMC shielding gaskets, aims to boost Nolato Jabar’s productivity, cut energy consumption, reduce waste and improve quality through continual laser-based monitoring.

Nolato Jabar, which employs around 70 people in New Jersey on the US East Coast, was acquired by Nolato in autumn 2019 to strengthen the Group’s position as a global specialist in electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) shielding products and solutions. The acquisition complemented Nolato Silikonteknik’s already strong position in Europe and Asia by adding process and material solutions in electronics shielding for sectors such as aviation, automotive, telecom and medtech in North America.

“EMC shielding gaskets are used to stop the electromagnetic radiation produced by electronic units from disrupting other electronics nearby. In most cases, this shielding effect is business-critical when gaskets are used in electronics-heavy environments such as in aviation, automotive, telecom and medtech,” explains Berndt Johansson, Managing Director of Nolato Jabar.

The new extrusion line will not only boost productivity, cut energy consumption and reduce waste, but will also improve the quality of gaskets by continually monitoring production using lasers.

“The laser constantly measures the external dimensions of the gasket and sends that information to the ­extrusion line control unit,” explains Berndt. “The control unit automatically adjusts the process parameters to ensure the preset dimensions are precisely maintained.”
