GIE 2018

 

GIE BlogMiner Elastomer Products is excited to be exhibiting at GIE on October 17th through the 19th in Louisville, KY!  MEPC is a dedicated supplier to the green industry and our TecsPak® bumpers provide innovative energy management solutions for various kinds of lawn and garden equipment in the industry.  TecsPak® bumpers are a highly engineered elastomeric product designed to absorb more energy per unit of weight and volume than many known materials.  TecsPak® is ideal for shock absorption and vibration isolation in the deck of the mower and in the seat/platform as well!  During this show we will be showcasing our axial, radial and crane bumpers along with the rest of our general line products!

Our GBR radial bumpers can replace the steel seat coils/springs for a smoother and quieter ride. These bumpers are used when there is a need for continuous and soft energy absorption. This bumper can be easily installed with a screw mounting the bumper to any surface where the energy of motion needs to be controlled. This bumper also provides a smoother ride and reduces stress and strain on the knees and joints of the operator.

Our GBA axial bumpers can be used in the suspension of the lawn mower and it absorbs shock similarly to the way it works in a car’s suspension. These bumpers provide isolation in the deck suspension due to their ability to endure a higher load capacity.

TecsPak® crane bumpers can be used in both the seat suspension and deck suspension on the mower.  These bumpers are very versatile and are built to handle loads for many different applications.

Another versatile product that will be at the show is our E-spring line. TecsPak® e-springs can replace steel coil springs by providing greater endurance and resilience.  E-springs weigh 60% less than typical steel coiled springs.

If none of our standard products work for your application our design engineers can help you design a custom part for your lawn and garden equipment.  With our TecsPak® products we are able to make modifications to the geometry of our products so we can meet your desired performance and keep your design/size envelope in specification.

Innovation Spotlight with BKE Racing

Blog Image.jpg

Miner Elastomer Products prides itself on manufacturing innovative shock absorbing bumpers out of our proprietary TecsPak® material.  TecsPak® stands for Thermoplastic Elastomer Compression Spring Package and has been solving energy management problems for decades.  TecsPak® equipped products have been proven to outlast comparable products made of rubber, urethane, or steel.  This type of performance can be found on fitness equipment where our bumpers have lasted for 10 million+ cycles.

Handle BarMEPC’s engineering team has worked with numerous companies in various industries on a wide array of applications.  One recent application that we worked on with BKE Racing was providing shock isolation in the handlebars of a dirt bike.  This customer had years of experience with dirt bikes and noticed riders would experience fatigue, numb hands or arm pump from riding rougher tracks and trails.  This was due to the constant pounding and bigger hits that the bike would experience from these types of courses.  This lead to the creation of the Advanced Handlebar Isolation System (AHIS) which works as an additional suspension specifically for the handlebar on the bike.  AHIS allows the user to have a smooth ride and will isolate the bikes handlebar from whatever terrain they are riding on.  There are also a few different ways to mount the bumper depending on the terrain that you riding on.

  • Install bumpers forward for faster, rougher terrain like desert racing or faster cross country races.
  • Install bumpers back for a softer feel on slower terrain like you might get in more technical enduros or endurocross.

This suspension system uses our TecsPak® GBA-S bumpers.  These bumpers are inert and their performance is not impacted by dirt, oils and other chemicals.  The GBA-S bumpers provide a longer travel with a softer entry and can withstand a peak force up to 5,000 lbs.
