Custom Machine Components

AMES Direct also specialises in custom Machine Components. We handle the complete process from design, tooling, material selection and manufacture. We work with engineers, designers, manufacturers and maintenance teams to develop their ideas into high performing parts suited to industry. We can assist with design, manufacture prototypes and manufacture low and high volume parts.

Custom components can be made easily from drawings or sample parts, and we excel in finding solutions for even the most difficult of jobs. We have an extensive range of materials including Polyurethanes, Rubbers, Metals & Plastics. We offer research and development, lab support and testing facilities, QA & QC Reports and Certificates, logging of batch numbers, productions dates and curing cycles.

At AMES Direct we’re experts in manufacturing Components from Hot Cast Polyurethanes. Some fo the benefits of using Polyurethane are;

  • Extremely tough – impact, abrasion, cut, tear.
  • Varied Hardness’s 10A – 70D Shore
  • Dual Hardness – for wear monitoring, grip or sliding properties
  • Low tooling costs
  • Parts from 10 grams to 250kgs
  • Production runs from single components to thousands per month
  • Composite Parts – bonding to steel and alloys
  • Short lead times
  • Excellent surface finish
  • Lifecyle Monitoring

At AMES Direct we’re experts in Rubber Compression moulded Components. Some of the benefits of using Rubber are;

  • Extremely tough – impact, abrasion, cut, tear.
  • Parts from 10 grams to 25kgs
  • Production runs from single components to thousands per month
  • Varied Hardness’s 40A – 90a Shore
  • Small & Big volume production runs
  • Composite Parts – bonding to steel and alloys
  • Short lead times
  • Great Surface Finishes
  • UV Resistant – EPDM only
