We realize that doing work for the government is not just another kind of commercial job. We cut our teeth on the prototypes
for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle for FMC and moved on to missile systems, ship board computers, communication systems, naval
fire fighting systems, and the space station. When it comes to defense we can't settle for anything less than an "unfair
Custom industrial components
There are no unimportant parts in an assembly. That's why we spend hours with your engineering people making sure
we understand to total application of your product or system. Whether it's a track pad for a tank, a vacuum cup
for an auto fender or sheet of plate glass, some of America's biggest industrial manufacturers rely on RDI to create
products that give them a distinct competitive advantage over their competitors.
We have learned from you that quality, innovation and quick market response are critical to new product introduction. Being
there first with a quality product allows you to set the standard. We have provided some of the industry's leading companies
with elastomeric solutions including vibration, shock and noise reduction using synthetic and highly damped viscoelastic
materials, ultra light weight digital tape capstans, crash stops, elastomeric spring covers molded to a controlled actuation
force and custom compounds with minimal outgassing characteristics.
Have you ever had a great idea and tried to get someone to listen? We know how frustrating that can be. We have listened to some
great ideas and then helped turn those ideas into reality. How about an idea for a training fin for world class swimmers, a neck
protector and cushion for beauty shops, a splicing cap for underwater electrical connections, weight slip covers for free weights,
or a street hockey puck that doesn't roll on its edge or easily become airborne? Got an idea? Give us a call.
Liquid material handling
Disassembling equipment in the field to fix a leak is costly and eliminates whatever advantage you once had.
We take the time to work with your engineers to design quality and reliability into the system from the beginning
using quality inserts, quality elastomers, quality adhesives, and quality control. We produce diaphragms, flap,
surge and butterfly valves, O-rings, gaskets, and tank liners. These products perform in a diverse range of liquid
materials, from solvents, oils and potable water to solids and abrasive materials.
If you have printers, copiers, tape backups, marking machines, or processing equipment of any kind we'll keep things moving
for you. When one of our customers told us he was shutting down a million dollar laser printer to constantly replace a two
dollar roller, we responded with a high temperature elastomer which reduced wear and cut down time dramatically. We vertically
molded a 15" roller for a graphic arts distributor to an O.D. tolerance of +/- .005" and a TIR of .003" with an eight micron
finish and of course no parting line.
