3M™ Bumpon™ Protective Products offer ways to meet spacing, gap filling and cushioning challenges. A variety of sizes and shapes help avoid costly tool changes or raw material changeovers. Bumpon protective products are made of urethane, a durable and abrasion-resistant material, and are said to have good cushioning and protective properties. Their high coefficient of friction can prevent sliding between adjacent surfaces, and they offer sound reduction and vibration damping characteristics. Depending on the solution required, a thickness and hardness can be chosen to address key issues that could be causing production downtime. The supplier says many times the added weight of incorporating a spacer or stop is not significant, and has no impact on the strength, balance or basic product function. Bumpon protective products can also be created in molded shapes that fit unique spaces and are adaptable to the needs of the production line. 3M,
