Fraser, MI — Nothing is more fundamental to successful manufacturing than ensuring that parts are not marred, scratched or otherwise damaged during the manufacturing process. That is why Fairlane Products, a premier North American supplier of workholding technologies and machine tool components, makes available a wide range of rectangular and square bumpers, all designed to protect parts ranging from those that are delicate or fragile to those that are heavy or unusually shaped.

A sampling of Fairlane Products rectangular and square bumpers that come in a variety of styles and sizes.

Rubber and urethane bumpers are designed to guard, stop, align, and protect a machine or work piece during the manufacturing process. They are available in square and rectangular shapes (standard and custom sizes available) with a variety of different styles that integrate well into an industrial application or commercial end product.

These bumpers are available in “off-the-shelf” sizes, as well as special cut to custom requirements. Bumpers are most often used in material handling, assembly and manufacturing operations to guide, stop and support parts as they are moved and transferred. Fairlane Products maintains a large inventory of products and they are an economical alternative in many applications to eliminate the need for custom engineered molded components.

The square and rectangular bumpers are available in black neoprene, white nitrile and colored urethane in 60 and 80 durometers with sizes of ¾” square to sizes of ½” x 4″. Heights from 3/8 to 2″. Special cut bumpers are available in black neoprene, 80-durometer, with thickness from 3/8 to 2″. The bumpers can be counterbored and can come with washers molded inside for added reinforcement. The black neoprene bumpers are flame resistant, while also resisting gasoline, oil and high temperatures. The white nitrile is resistant to gasoline, oil, alcohol and abrasion. The urethane bumpers offer high abrasion resistance, strength and load bearing and provide high elongation hardness with a resistance to ozone and oxygen degradation.

In addition to rectangular and square bumpers, Fairlane Products also has available a full line of round bumpers. The company also designs and manufactures a wide range of workholding and positioning components, rollers, replaceable grippers, rest pads, and Swivots® — modular component for holding and positioning of irregular contour surfaces, covered bearings, quick releases ball lock pins, workholding grippers, TG GripSerts and GP-series gripper pads.
