Most Frequently Asked Questions
What tolerances can you hold in your plastic parts?
OMNI holds to standard dimensional practices. The majority of the parts that we manufacture are at a two place decimal level and held to ±.01". However, there are instances where that is not good enough, or that may be overkill. Depending on the specifics OMNI can hold ±.005" on specific features by molding the part to size, or machining a specific dimension to accomplish the overall requirement.
After you create my mold, what should I expect my lead-time to be on repeat orders?
At OMNI we desire to be responsive to our customers' needs. Lead-times fall into a few categories, standard runs and long runs. The quantity of parts required dictates the expected lead-times. Normal repeat orders would fall into a 3-5 week window.
Your product will need to be cleaned and sanitized, how would we go about doing that?
Each elastomer is different, however the majority of the products that we handle are able to have CIP (Clean In Place) requirements put on them. The fact that these materials are fairly corrosion resistant, combined with a hygienic design, allow for extremely sanitary components. Many of the materials we utilize have operating temperatures of 185°F and can stand up to hot water, not steam, and most standard cleaning agents provided that are at the proper dilution rate.
How does plastic hold up to wear and tear compared to SS or another metal?
This is a great question and one we love to answer. Yes, yes it can! Many polymers, specifically polyurethanes, have outstanding abrasion resistance and toughness due to the wide range of durometers available. These materials can be extremely soft and compliant to extremely rigid like a bowling ball. This affords us the flexibility to optimize the design and functionality. There is a reason why salt truck blades and salter chutes are made from polymers and not metals. Impingement resistance and corrosion resistance.
