SM Inc is a company that produces and distributes high quality NBR float items. Since its formation in the year 2006, the company has supplied a high variety of floats to global clients and received different certifications as well as recognition for its high quality products.
Characteristics of the NBR float products
SM Inc floats have independent and closed cells that do not allow liquid to penetrate thereby allowing buoyancy to be achieved efficiently. The floats are attractive for use in mechanical physics because they have high thermal and electrical insulation properties. Further, the rubber floats are chemical resistant and compatible with many liquids including diesel, gasoline, alcohol, and other fuels. Depending on the customers’ needs, the floats can be customized for use at different temperature and pressure conditions. The NBR floats can also be molded to different shapes or sizes and still retain their high quality performance.
History of SM Inc Company
With a paid-in initial capital of US $50,000 at the time of its formation, SM Inc achieved a production volume of 6,000,000 floats per year in the same year. The company has since received quality approvals from India, Turkey, Italy, Taiwan, USA, Japan, Thailand, and other global markets. The most recent quality approval is from CRANE Group of Barksdale, Germany. Among the global manufacturers that have contracted SM Inc include; Honda Motors, Nissan, Renault, Volkswagen, Lovato, and Veeder USA.
The SM Inc company is overlooked by a CEO, who is the sole manager at the 1st level of management. At the second level of management and administration are the director and the company auditor. The third management level consists of key departments like; production, business administration, quality assurance, and the research and development team. The fourth and last level in the organization structure consists of manufacturing, inspection and packaging teams.
SM Inc engineers have put professional measures to ensure that manufactured NBR float items are free from any defects whatsoever. The company runs a “Reject and Return” guarantee program which allows customers to accept only products that meet their quality expectations. SM Inc laboratory is also well equipped with equipment to run reliability tests on all NBR floats before they are released to the customers. The quality management systems of the company have received ISO 14001 and ISO/TS 16949 certifications.
Research and development
The company’s research and development team has introduced new innovations in the manufacturing processes to ensure that SM Inc NBR floats are of superior quality. The most recent patent acquisition is a low sulfur formulation technology which ensures that the H2S gas produced at the manufacturing plant is at its minimum. High production of sulfur gas causes corrosion of machine parts like contact springs. Such corrosion always cause unnecessary malfunctions that could eventually compromise the quality of final products. The company has also acquired a Korean pin molding technology which assists in precise metal cutting and eliminates mal-centering of holes or additional machining conducted after production. Further, the production facility is equipped with Jumbo automated machines like mold presses that lower production costs and makes NBR float products very affordable.
