Contract Manufacture of Friction Products

Contract Manufacture of Friction Products

Oak Friction Products Division contract manufactures friction shoes, bands, plates, segments and facings for a variety of industrial customers. We do “bond-only” work where we bond customer-supplied lining to customer-supplied backing plates up to providing complete manufactured parts packaged and ready to put on the shelf.

We can provide virtually any type of inspection reporting including bond line charts, destructive testing, non-destructive testing and sampling and in most cases we utilize and document 100% inspections.

Our delivery times are as fast as possible. We strive to meet customer’s emergency requirements by working overtime and overnight if required as well as expeditiously process standard deliveries.
