The Gund Company is dedicated to offering unique material solutions to our customers as an application-focused enterprise. This drive to provide application solutions has resulted in developing numerous custom materials with exceptional mechanical and electrical properties that fit our customers’ specific applications.
The Gund Company can produce various custom geometric shapes and sizes via the VARTM process. The composite resins and fabrics can also be altered to meet the application’s needs. Examples of this could include using different fabrics and reinforcing fibers such as an S-Glass, Carbon fiber, or Kevlar to create higher strength composites in complex shapes.
VARTM also provides fiber orientation contoured to the shape of the part. If a part is machined from a flat composite sheet, fibers are only oriented in the x-y plane, which can create weak spots in a 3-D contour.
Fabrication & Converting
In addition to our comprehensive material offerings, we also offer a variety of fabrication and converting services.
Once our materials specialists assist you with material selection, our application engineers can help you complete your component design by tapping into our full range of fabrication and converting capabilities. Our CNC machining and converting capability includes mills, routers, punches, saws, drills, brakes, waterjet, lathes, cutting, and more. The Gund Company also builds custom fabrication equipment to meet the requirements of the most demanding customer applications.
Our custom fabricated parts are manufactured according to ISO 9001:2015 Certified quality management systems. We partner with our customers to understand their application requirements and specifications of their custom parts. We take a consultative approach to understanding these requirements. Then, we work with their team to design a custom package of parts and services that meets or exceeds the application specifications, while reducing cost through manufacturing and fabrication efficiency.
Since 1951, we have listened to our customers and learned about the challenging operating environments of their equipment as well as the day-to-day struggles they face associated with a wide variety of parts and pieces. The Gund Company takes pride in being responsive to our customers’ needs.
