Bonding & Riveting of Friction Material

Bonding and Riveting of Friction Material

Oak Friction Product Division bonds friction material to customer or Cleveland Oak supplied parts for a variety of industrial customers such as press and forge manufacturers, stamping plants, appliance and machinery manufacturers and many others who require original or replacement friction components. We supply cut piece parts such as water jet gear tooth segments as well as bonded and riveted parts to both original equipment manufacturers and industrial users.

Our bonding is done in temperature controlled, programmable ovens, monitored with recording thermographs to insure a proper bond. Our production volumes range from custom manufacture of one or two extremely large clutch plates for a forging press to one million plus parts per year for a washing machine manufacturer.

Our bonding process is carefully monitored every step of the way to insure you receive a high quality part, on time, as economically as is currently possible.
