Custom Non-Metal Stamped Part Production

This past summer, we had the pleasure of sitting down with engineering.com to talk about non-metal stamped parts production. We talked about a little bit of everything, ranging from non-metal stamp considerations, to custom tooling and production volumes for stamped parts produced in house. Check out the article below, or click here for the full edition. A […]

Nylon vs. Teflon Washers

Most washers can be made of either nylon or Teflon. These versatile polymers offer greater mechanical strength and higher resistance to friction than traditional materials such as aluminum, steel, and bronze, making them a more durable and cost-effective solution in most industrial applications. Despite their similarities, however, nylon and Teflon each have distinct properties that […]

Everything Under One Roof

In today’s manufacturing world, few companies have the capabilities and resources to handle turnkey jobs, all under one roof. Many aspects of jobs are outsourced to 3rd party contractors, and the personalized touch, first hand control, and cost savings opportunities of a project can be lost. At New Process Fibre, we have been a leader […]
