Polyurethane Idler Rollers in Less Than 7 Days

Precision Idler Rollers

After conducting some basic testing with standard products, available through the distributor, a worldwide aerospace design and engineering firm realized they required options and alternatives which the distributor was not willing to stock and carry, and was then directed to Meridian Laboratory.

Solutionpolyurethane idler rollers

Working directly with engineers at a major aerospace design and engineering firm, Meridian Laboratory was able to deliver low volume prototypes of their custom designed polyurethane idler rollers in a matter of days for testing and evaluation.  Following an extensive test period, and tests to conform with aerospace standards, Meridian Laboratory worked to answer customer questions to further the customer’s confidence in selecting Meridian Laboratory. The customer was able to quickly conduct quality and longevity testing, qualify and evaluate the product, and advise the custom polyurethane idler rollers to be certified for mass production.

Following certification and vendor approval, Meridian Laboratory worked with a variety of end-integrators and production facilities to ensure on-time deliveries for their high-volume production orders with proper documentation, and certification of conformance.

Key Statistics

    I contacted Meridian Laboratory to obtain a slip ring for my Undergraduate Senior Capstone project. The project required … More a slip ring capable of highspeed data transfer with very little noise to drive an LED bar on a fan to generate images. Sven Krause was very knowledgeable and responsive and helped me figure out what product I needed. He even managed to get the slip ring donated to our team and had great advice on how to integrate it into our project. The project was a huge success thanks to Meridian Laboratory.

    I had a great experience working with Vance Nelson on a batch of custom polyurethane wheels. He provided fantastic design … More and material property advice related to my application and was able to deliver high quality wheels in a fast time frame at a reasonable price. I'd highly recommend working with Vance and Meridian Lab in the future

    I've had the pleasure of working with Meridian Laboratory for the past couple of years, and they have revolutionized … More our product with the parts they created for us. Not only did they create the part, they also gave us advice on which type of material to use, and the combination of those two things has helped us be more efficient and productive.
    Vance has been helpful at every turn, and I look forward to working with him and the team at Meridian Laboratory more in the future. They do superb work.
